Authored by otis on Dec 20 2020, 3:59 PM.



Update mail/fetchmail and mail/fetchmailconf to 6.4.14

Changelog for 6.4.14:

  • TRANSLATION UPDATES were made by these fine people:
    • sr: Мирослав Николић (Miroslav Nikolić) [Serbian]
    • Fetchmail does not handle messages without Message-ID header well
    • Fetchmail currently uses 31-bit signed integers in several places where unsigned and/or wider types should have been used, for instance, for mailbox sizes, and misreports sizes of 2 GibiB and beyond. Fixing this requires C89 compatibility to be relinquished.
    • BSMTP is mostly untested and errors can cause corrupt output.
    • Fetchmail does not track pending deletes across crashes.
    • The command line interface is sometimes a bit stubborn, for instance, fetchmail -s doesn't work with a daemon running.
    • Linux systems may return duplicates of an IP address in some circumstances if no or no global IPv6 addresses are configured.
    • Kerberos 5 may be broken, particularly on Heimdal, and provide bogus error messages. This will not be fixed, because the maintainer has no Kerberos 5 server to test against. Use GSSAPI.
