Description Chris Ricker 2002-12-20 16:35:23 UTC
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

Comment 1 Chris Ricker 2002-12-23 06:38:06 UTC
It has shipped now:

diff for rawhide spec to make it work with postfix 2.0

Comment 4 Chris Ricker 2003-01-10 00:57:55 UTC
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

local_recipient_maps =

in main.cf (ie, empty value)....

Comment 5 Chris Ricker 2003-01-13 05:58:53 UTC
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)....
