SENDMAIL RELEASE NOTES

This listing shows the version of the sendmail binary, the version
of the sendmail configuration files, the date of release, and a
summary of the changes in that release.
Do not split the first header even if it exceeds the internal
buffer size. Previously a part of such a header would
end up in the body of the message. Problem noted by
Simple Nomad of BindView.
Do not complain about "cataddr: string too long" when checking
headers that do not contain RFC 2822 addresses.
Problem noted by Rich Graves of Brandeis University.
If a server returns a 421 reply to the RSET command between
message deliveries, do not attempt to deliver any more
messages on that connection. This prevents bogus "Bad
file number" recipient status. Problem noted by
Allan E Johannesen of Worcester Polytechnic Institute.
Allow trailing white space in EHLO command as recommended by RFC
2821. Problem noted by Ralph Santagato of SBC Services.
Deal with clients which use AUTH but negotiate a smaller buffer size
for data exchanges than the value used by sendmail, e.g.,
Cyrus IMAP lmtp server. Based on patch by Jamie Clark.
When passing ESMTP arguments for RCPT to a milter, do not cut
them off at a comma. Problem noted by Krzysztof Oledzki.
Add more logging to milter change header functions to
complement existing logging. Based on patch from
Gurusamy Sarathy of Active State.
Include <lber.h> in include/sm/config.h when LDAPMAP is defined.
Patch from Edgar Hoch of the University of Stuttgart.
Fix DNS lookup if IPv6 is enabled when converting an IP address
to a hostname for use with SASL. Problem noted by Ken Jones;
patch from Hajimu UMEMOTO.
CONFIG: For consistency enable MODIFY_MAILER_FLAGS for the prog
mailer. Patch from John Beck of Sun Microsystems.
LIBMILTER: It was possible that xxfi_abort() was called after
xxfi_eom() for a message if some timeouts were triggered.
Patch from Alexey Kravchuk.
LIBMILTER: Slightly rearrange mutex use in listener.c to allow
different threads to call smfi_opensocket() and smfi_main().
Patch from Jordan Ritter of Cloudmark.
MAIL.LOCAL: Properly terminate MBDB before exiting. Problem
noted by Nelson Fung.
MAIL.LOCAL: make strip-mail.local used a wrong path to access
mail.local. Problem noted by William Park.
VACATION: Properly terminate MBDB before exiting. Problem noted
by Nelson Fung.
Add support for DragonFly BSD.
