Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 80139
RFE: Postfix 2.0
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:38:04 EDT
Postfix 2.0 will ship momentarily
It's probably too late to make beta3, but it'd be really nice if postfix is
updated to this new release before 8.1
Features added include:
* relay transport
* retuning of mail queue structure -- performance increase for most sites
* better organization of virtual user tables (increased performance and ease of
* better logging
* per user transports -- much greater flexibility
It has shipped now:
Created attachment 89275 [details]
updated smtpd_multiline patch
Updated replacement for the smtpd_multiline patch ; works w/ both Postfix 1.1x
and Postfix 2.0
Created attachment 89276 [details]
diff for rawhide spec to make it work with postfix 2.0
Attached are two patches, an updated smtpd_multiline.patch (drop-in replacement
for current postfix-smtpd_multiline_greeting.patch) and a diff against the spec
file for postfix-1.1.11-6. Drop in the replacement, apply the patch, fix the
misnamed file (Bug 78020; mv SOURCES/README-Postifx-SASL-RedHat.txt
SOURCES/README-Postfix-SASL-RedHat.txt), drop in the new Postfix and
Postfix-TLS source, and it'll build.
Main changes to the spec are:
* removing the postfix-1.1.4-sasl2-patch, since postfix 2 can already compile
against SASL2 w/o patching
* cp'ing /etc/passwd into the chroot jail. Postfix 2, unlike Postfix 1, rejects
unknown local users by default, so it must access /etc/passwd....
Alternately, it might be better just to disable the "reject unknown users stuff"
in the default shipped by RH? To do that, put
in main.cf (ie, empty value)....
Postfix 2.0.1 came out today. It includes a proxymap daemon which simplifies
Postfix 2 spec file creation greatly (since proxymap can be used even w/
chroot'ed postfix to access /etc/passwd, which means /etc/passwd doesn't have to
be copied in the chroot jail)....
