133

TF
134TF/03 Make the exiwhat support code safe for signals. Previously Exim might
135 lock up or crash if it happened to be inside a call to libc when it
136 got a SIGUSR1 from exiwhat.
137
138 The SIGUSR1 handler appends the current process status to the process
139 log which is later printed by exiwhat. It used to use the general
140 purpose logging code to do this, but several functions it calls are
141 not safe for signals.
142
143 The new output code in the SIGUSR1 handler is specific to the process
144 log, and simple enough that it's easy to inspect for signal safety.
145 Removing some special cases also simplifies the general logging code.
146 Removing the spurious timestamps from the process log simplifies
147 exiwhat.
148

TF
149TF/04 Improved ratelimit ACL condition.
150
151 The /noupdate option has been deprecated in favour of /readonly which
152 has clearer semantics. The /leaky, /strict, and /readonly update modes
153 are mutually exclusive. The update mode is no longer included in the
154 database key; it just determines when the database is updated. (This
155 means that when you upgrde Exim will forget old rate measurements.)
156
157 Exim now checks that the per_* options are used with an update mode that
158 makes sense for the current ACL. For example, when Exim is processing a
159 message (e.g. acl_smtp_rcpt or acl_smtp_data, etc.) you can specify
160 per_mail/leaky or per_mail/strict; otherwise (e.g. in acl_smtp_helo) you
161 must specify per_mail/readonly. If you omit the update mode it defaults to
162 /leaky where that makes sense (as before) or /readonly where required.
163
164 The /noupdate option is now undocumented but still supported for
165 backwards compatibility. It is equivalent to /readonly except that in
166 ACLs where /readonly is required you may specify /leaky/noupdate or
167 /strict/noupdate which are treated the same as /readonly.
168
169 A useful new feature is the /count= option. This is a generalization
170 of the per_byte option, so that you can measure the throughput of other
171 aggregate values. For example, the per_byte option is now equivalent
172 to per_mail/count=${if >{0}{$message_size} {0} {$message_size} }.
173
174 The per_rcpt option has been generalized using the /count= mechanism
175 (though it's more complicated than the per_byte equivalence). When it is
176 used in acl_smtp_rcpt, the per_rcpt option adds recipients to the
177 measured rate one at a time; if it is used later (e.g. in acl_smtp_data)
178 or in a non-SMTP ACL it adds all the recipients in one go. (The latter
179 /count=$recipients_count behaviour used to work only in non-SMTP ACLs.)
180 Note that using per_rcpt with a non-readonly update mode in more than
181 one ACL will cause the recipients to be double-counted. (The per_mail
182 and per_byte options don't have this problem.)
183
184 The handling of very low rates has changed slightly. If the computed rate
185 is less than the event's count (usually one) then this event is the first
186 after a long gap. In this case the rate is set to the same as this event's
187 count, so that the first message of a spam run is counted properly.
188
189 The major new feature is a mechanism for counting the rate of unique
190 events. The new per_addr option counts the number of different
191 recipients that someone has sent messages to in the last time period. It
192 behaves like per_rcpt if all the recipient addresses are different, but
193 duplicate recipient addresses do not increase the measured rate. Like
194 the /count= option this is a general mechanism, so the per_addr option
195 is equivalent to per_rcpt/unique=$local_part@$domain. You can, for
196 example, measure the rate that a client uses different sender addresses
197 with the options per_mail/unique=$sender_address. There are further
198 details in the main documentation.

747
748 Note to Michael Haardt: I had to rename some vars in sieve.c. They
749 were called 'true' and it seems that C99 defines that as a reserved

751 not include C99-style headers which use bools without triggering

770PH/01 Another patch from the Sieve maintainer.
771
6a3bceb1
PH
772PH/02 When an IPv6 address is converted to a string for single-key lookup
773 in an address list (e.g. for an item such as "net24-dbm;/net/works"),
774 dots are used instead of colons so that keys in lsearch files need not
775 contain colons. This was done some time before quoting was made available
776 in lsearch files. However, iplsearch files do require colons in IPv6 keys
777 (notated using the quote facility) so as to distinguish them from IPv4
778 keys. This meant that lookups for IP addresses in host lists did not work
779 for iplsearch lookups.
780
781 This has been fixed by arranging for IPv6 addresses to be expressed with
782 colons if the lookup type is iplsearch. This is not incompatible, because
783 previously such lookups could never work.
784
785 The situation is now rather anomolous, since one *can* have colons in
786 ordinary lsearch keys. However, making the change in all cases is
787 incompatible and would probably break a number of configurations.

792MH/01 The "spam" ACL condition code contained a sscanf() call with a %s
793 conversion specification without a maximum field width, thereby enabling
794 a rogue spamd server to cause a buffer overflow. While nobody in their
795 right mind would setup Exim to query an untrusted spamd server, an
796 attacker that gains access to a server running spamd could potentially
797 exploit this vulnerability to run arbitrary code as the Exim user.

805 Exim lacked permissions to read, a lookup for a key matching that

990PH/29 SMTP synchronization checks are implemented when a command is read -

993 some time before the response is written. In this time, more input might
994 arrive, invalidly. So now there are extra checks after an ACL has run for
995 HELO/EHLO and after the predata ACL, and likewise for MAIL and RCPT when
996 pipelining has not been advertised.

PH
1070 the response to the final '.' that terminates a message, but only in the
1071 case where the client has not sent further data following the '.'
1072 (unfortunately, this is allowed). However, in many cases there won't be
1073 any further data because there won't be any more messages to send. A call
1074 to select() can be used: if it shows that the input is "ready", there is
1075 either input waiting, or the socket has been closed. An attempt to read
1076 the next input character can distinguish the two cases. Previously, Exim
58eb016e 1077 would have sent an OK response which the client would never have see.

1088PH/01 Two more bugs that were introduced by 4.64/PH/07, in addition to the one
1089 fixed by 4.65/MH/01 (is this a record?) are fixed:
1090
1091 (i) An empty string was always treated as zero by the numeric comparison
1092 operators. This behaviour has been restored.
1093
1094 (ii) It is documented that the numeric comparison operators always treat
1095 their arguments as decimal numbers. This was broken in that numbers
1096 starting with 0 were being interpreted as octal.
1097
1098 While fixing these problems I realized that there was another issue that
1099 hadn't been noticed. Values of message_size_limit (both the global option
1100 and the transport option) were treated as octal if they started with 0.
1101 The documentation was vague. These values are now always treated as
1102 decimal, and I will make that clear in the documentation.

PH
1146PH/01 If a server that rejects MAIL FROM:<> was the target of a sender
1147 callout verification, Exim cached a "reject" for the entire domain. This
1148 is correct for most verifications, but it is not correct for a recipient
1149 verification with use_sender or use_postmaster set, because in that case
1150 the callout does not use MAIL FROM:<>. Exim now distinguishes the special
1151 case of MAIL FROM:<> rejection from other early rejections (e.g.
1152 rejection of HELO). When verifying a recipient using a non-null MAIL
1153 address, the cache is ignored if it shows MAIL FROM:<> rejection.
1154 Whatever the result of the callout, the value of the domain cache is
1155 left unchanged (for any other kind of callout, getting as far as trying
1156 RCPT means that the domain itself is ok).

1193 callout (which could be using a different interface). This has been
1194 changed to use the value of the helo_data option from the smtp transport
1195 instead - this is what is used when a message is actually being sent. If
1196 there is no remote transport (possible with a router that sets up host

14aa5a05 1199PH/12 Installed Andrey Panin's patch to add a dovecot authenticator. Various
7befa435 1200 tweaks were necessary in order to get it to work (see also 21 below):
14aa5a05
PH
1201 (a) The code assumed that strncpy() returns a negative number on buffer
1202 overflow, which isn't the case. Replaced with Exim's string_format()
1203 function.
1204 (b) There were several signed/unsigned issues. I just did the minimum
1205 hacking in of casts. There is scope for a larger refactoring.
1206 (c) The code used strcasecmp() which is not a standard C function.
1207 Replaced with Exim's strcmpic() function.
1208 (d) The code set only $1; it now sets $auth1 as well.
1209 (e) A simple test gave the error "authentication client didn't specify
1210 service in request". It would seem that Dovecot has changed its
1211 interface. Fortunately there's a specification; I followed it and
1212 changed what the client sends and it appears to be working now.

e6f6568e
PH
1217PH/14 Corrected misleading output from -bv when -v was also used. Suppose the
1218 address A is aliased to B and C, where B exists and C does not. Without
1219 -v the output is "A verified" because verification stops after a
1220 successful redirection if more than one address is generated. However,
1221 with -v the child addresses are also verified. Exim was outputting "A
1222 failed to verify" and then showing the successful verification for C,
1223 with its parentage. It now outputs "B failed to verify", showing B's
1224 parentage before showing the successful verification of C.

PH
1226PH/15 Applied Michael Deutschmann's patch to allow DNS black list processing to
1227 look up a TXT record in a specific list after matching in a combined
1228 list.
1229
322050c2
PH
1230PH/16 It seems that the options setting for the resolver (RES_DEFNAMES and
1231 RES_DNSRCH) can affect the behaviour of gethostbyname() and friends when
1232 they consult the DNS. I had assumed they would set it the way they
1233 wanted; and indeed my experiments on Linux seem to show that in some
1234 cases they do (I could influence IPv6 lookups but not IPv4 lookups).
1235 To be on the safe side, however, I have now made the interface to
1236 host_find_byname() similar to host_find_bydns(), with an argument
1237 containing the DNS resolver options. The host_find_byname() function now
1238 sets these options at its start, just as host_find_bydns() does. The smtp
1239 transport options dns_qualify_single and dns_search_parents are passed to
1240 host_find_byname() when gethostbyname=TRUE in this transport. Other uses
1241 of host_find_byname() use the default settings of RES_DEFNAMES
1242 (qualify_single) but not RES_DNSRCH (search_parents).
1243

PH
1244PH/17 Applied (a modified version of) Nico Erfurth's patch to make
1245 spool_read_header() do less string testing, by means of a preliminary
1246 switch on the second character of optional "-foo" lines. (This is
1247 overdue, caused by the large number of possibilities that now exist.
1248 Originally there were few.) While I was there, I also converted the
1249 str(n)cmp tests so they don't re-test the leading "-" and the first
1250 character, in the hope this might squeeze out yet more improvement.
1251

PH
1252PH/18 Two problems with "group" syntax in header lines when verifying: (1) The
1253 flag allowing group syntax was set by the header_syntax check but not
1254 turned off, possible causing trouble later; (2) The flag was not being
1255 set at all for the header_verify test, causing "group"-style headers to
1256 be rejected. I have now set it in this case, and also caused header_
1257 verify to ignore an empty address taken from a group. While doing this, I
1258 came across some other cases where the code for allowing group syntax
1259 while scanning a header line wasn't quite right (mostly, not resetting
1260 the flag correctly in the right place). These bugs could have caused
1261 trouble for malformed header lines. I hope it is now all correct.
1262
602e59e5
PH
1263PH/19 The functions {pwcheck,saslauthd}_verify_password() are always called
1264 with the "reply" argument non-NULL. The code, however (which originally
1265 came from elsewhere) had *some* tests for NULL when it wrote to *reply,
1266 but it didn't always do it. This confused somebody who was copying the
1267 code for some other use. I have removed all the tests.
1268
411ef850
PH
1269PH/20 It was discovered that the GnuTLS code had support for RSA_EXPORT, a
1270 feature that was used to support insecure browsers during the U.S. crypto
1271 embargo. It requires special client support, and Exim is probably the
1272 only MTA that supported it -- and would never use it because real RSA is
1273 always available. This code has been removed, because it had the bad
1274 effect of slowing Exim down by computing (never used) parameters for the
1275 RSA_EXPORT functionality.
1276
7befa435
PH
1277PH/21 On the advice of Timo Sirainen, added a check to the dovecot
1278 authenticator to fail if there's a tab character in the incoming data
1279 (there should never be unless someone is messing about, as it's supposed
1280 to be base64-encoded). Also added, on Timo's advice, the "secured" option
1281 if the connection is using TLS or if the remote IP is the same as the
1282 local IP, and the "valid-client-cert option" if a client certificate has
1283 been verified.
1284
48da4259 1285PH/22 As suggested by Dennis Davis, added a server_condition option to *all*

PH
1314
1315PH/30 Exim was sometimes attempting to deliver messages that had suffered
1316 address errors (4xx response to RCPT) over the same connection as other
1317 messages routed to the same hosts. Such deliveries are always "forced",
1318 so retry times are not inspected. This resulted in far too many retries
1319 for the affected addresses. The effect occurred only when there were more
1320 hosts than the hosts_max_try setting in the smtp transport when it had
1321 the 4xx errors. Those hosts that it had tried were not added to the list
1322 of hosts for which the message was waiting, so if all were tried, there
1323 was no problem. Two fixes have been applied:
1324
1325 (i) If there are any address or message errors in an SMTP delivery, none
1326 of the hosts (tried or untried) are now added to the list of hosts
1327 for which the message is waiting, so the message should not be a
1328 candidate for sending over the same connection that was used for a
1329 successful delivery of some other message. This seems entirely
1330 reasonable: after all the message is NOT "waiting for some host".
1331 This is so "obvious" that I'm not sure why it wasn't done
1332 previously. Hope I haven't missed anything, but it can't do any
1333 harm, as the worst effect is to miss an optimization.
1334
1335 (ii) If, despite (i), such a delivery is accidentally attempted, the
1336 routing retry time is respected, so at least it doesn't keep
1337 hammering the server.

PH
1352PH/35 The error "getsockname() failed: connection reset by peer" was being
1353 written to the panic log as well as the main log, but it isn't really
1354 panic-worthy as it just means the connection died rather early on. I have
1355 removed the panic log writing for the ECONNRESET error when getsockname()
1356 fails.
1357
48c7f9e2
PH
1358PH/36 After a 4xx response to a RCPT error, that address was delayed (in queue
1359 runs only) independently of the message's sender address. This meant
1360 that, if the 4xx error was in fact related to the sender, a different
1361 message to the same recipient with a different sender could confuse
1362 things. In particualar, this can happen when sending to a greylisting
1363 server, but other circumstances could also provoke similar problems.
1364 I have changed the default so that the retry time for these errors is now
1365 based a combination of the sender and recipient addresses. This change
1366 can be overridden by setting address_retry_include_sender=false in the
1367 smtp transport.

1635PH/02 When tcp-wrappers is called from Exim, it returns only "deny" or "allow".
1636 "Deny" causes Exim to reject the incoming connection with a 554 error.
1637 Unfortunately, if there is a major crisis, such as a disk failure,
1638 tcp-wrappers gives "deny", whereas what one would like would be some
1639 kind of temporary error. A kludge has been added to help with this.
1640 Before calling hosts_ctl(), errno is set zero. If the result is "deny", a
1641 554 error is used if errno is still zero or contains ENOENT (which occurs
1642 if either of the /etc/hosts.{allow,deny} files is missing). Otherwise, a
1643 451 error is used.

1668 used only to exclude .Trash (or whatever) when the size of the mailbox
1669 was calculated. There was no check that a delivery was happening into an

1679PH/01 The code for finding all the local interface addresses on a FreeBSD
1680 system running IPv6 was broken. This may well have applied to all BSD
1681 systems, as well as to others that have similar system calls. The broken
1682 code found IPv4 interfaces correctly, but gave incorrect values for the
1683 IPv6 interfaces. In particular, ::1 was not found. The effect in Exim was
1684 that it would not match correctly against @[] and not recognize the IPv6
1685 addresses as local.

1728 autoreply, Exim could try to deliver to a non-existent relative file

1751 (a) Failures to set uid/gid, the current directory, or a process leader
1752 in a subprocess such as that created by queryprogram now generate
1753 suitable debugging ouput when -d is set.

1764 Instead, it always explicitly searches for A/AAAA records. This avoids
1765 major problems that occur when a DNS server includes only records of one
1766 type (A or AAAA) in an MX/SRV packet. A byproduct of this change has
1767 fixed another bug: if SRV records were looked up and the corresponding
1768 address records were *not* found in the additional section, the port
1769 values from the SRV records were lost.

PH
1779PH/19 When calculating a retry time, Exim used to measure the "time since
1780 failure" by looking at the "first failed" field in the retry record. Now
1781 it does not use this if it is later than than the arrival time of the
1782 message. Instead it uses the arrival time. This makes for better
1783 behaviour in cases where some deliveries succeed, thus re-setting the
1784 "first failed" field. An example is a quota failure for a huge message
1785 when small messages continue to be delivered. Without this change, the
1786 "time since failure" will always be short, possible causing more frequent
1787 delivery attempts for the huge message than are intended.

PH
1884PH/42 The content-scanning code uses fopen() to create files in which to put
1885 message data. Previously it was not paying any attention to the mode of
1886 the files. Exim runs with umask(0) because the rest of the code creates
1887 files with open(), and sets the required mode explicitly. Thus, these
1888 files were ending up world-writeable. This was not a big issue, because,
1889 being within the spool directory, they were not world-accessible. I have
1890 created a function called modefopen, which takes an additional mode
1891 argument. It sets umask(777), creates the file, chmods it to the required
1892 mode, then resets the umask. All the relevant calls to fopen() in the

1930
1931 (i) Exim was not creating retry information for temporary errors given

1933 was used in LMTP mode. This meant that they could be retried too
1934 frequently, and not timed out correctly.
1935
1936 (ii) Exim was setting the flag that allows error details to be returned
1937 for LMTP errors on RCPT commands, but not for LMTP errors for individual
1938 recipients that were returned after the DATA command.
1939
1940PH/53 This is related to PH/52, but is more general: for any failing address,
1941 when detailed error information was permitted to be returned to the

2014PH/71 Fixed an obscure and subtle bug (thanks Alexander & Matthias). The
2015 function verify_get_ident() calls ip_connect() to connect a socket, but
2016 if the "connect()" function timed out, ip_connect() used to close the
2017 socket. However, verify_get_ident() also closes the socket later, and in
2018 between Exim writes to the log, which may get opened at this point. When
2019 the socket was closed in ip_connect(), the log could get the same file
2020 descriptor number as the socket. This naturally causes chaos. The fix is
2021 not to close the socket in ip_connect(); the socket should be closed by
2022 the function that creates it. There was only one place in the code where
2023 this was missing, in the iplookup router, which I don't think anybody now
2024 uses, but I've fixed it anyway.

2047
2048 (2) Treat a missing third argument of ${prvscheck as if it were an empty
2049 string.
2050
2051 (3) Reset the variables that are obtained from the first argument of
2052 ${prvscheck and used in the second argument before leaving the code,
2053 because their memory is reclaimed, so using them afterwards may do
2054 silly things.
2055
2056 (4) Tidy up the code for expanding the arguments of ${prvscheck one by
2057 one (it's much easier than Tom thought :-).
2058

2080PH/06 When a client host used a correct literal IP address in a HELO or EHLO
2081 command, (for example, EHLO [1.2.3.4]) and the client's IP address was
2082 not being looked up in the rDNS to get a host name, Exim was showing the
2083 IP address twice in Received: lines, even though the IP addresses were
2084 identical. For example:
2085
2086 Received: from [1.2.3.4] (helo=[1.2.3.4])
2087
2088 However, if the real host name was known, it was omitting the HELO data
2089 if it matched the actual IP address. This has been tidied up so that it
2090 doesn't show the same IP address twice.

2121 in the messages that it generates (bounce messages and others, such as
2122 warnings). In the case of bounce messages for non-SMTP mesages, there was
2123 also a typo: it was using "Auto_submitted" (underscore instead of
2124 hyphen). Since every message generated by Exim is necessarily in response
2125 to another message, thes have all been changed to:
2126
2127 Auto-Submitted: auto-replied
2128
2129 in accordance with these statements in the RFC:
2130
2131 The auto-replied keyword:

2181 the IP address, check_host() was doing a simple string comparison with
2182 addresses acquired from the DNS when checking that the found name did
2183 have the original IP as one of its addresses. Since any found IPv6
2184 addresses are likely to be in abbreviated form, the comparison could
2185 fail. Luckily, there already exists a function for doing the comparison
2186 by converting both addresses to binary, so now that is used instead of
2187 the text comparison.

2485 with the definition in sysexits.h (which is #included earlier).
2486 Fortunately, Exim does not actually use EX_OK. The code used to try to
2487 preserve the sysexits.h value, by assumimg that macro definitions were
2488 scanned for macro replacements. I have been disabused of this notion,
2489 so now the code just undefines EX_OK before #including unistd.h.

2494 This seems wrong - if the receiver was accepting one byte at a time it
2495 would take for ever. The timeout is now adjusted when this happens. It
2496 doesn't have to be particularly precise.

2573 suddenly stopped working when I started to use syslog. The patch checks

2704
2705PH/02 Installed a slightly modified version of Nikos Mavrogiannopoulos' patch
2706 that changes the way the GnuTLS parameters are stored in the cache file.
2707 The new format can be generated externally. For backward compatibility,
2708 if the data in the cache doesn't make sense, Exim assumes it has read an
2709 old-format file, and it generates new data and writes a new file. This
2710 means that you can't go back to an older release without removing the
2711 file.
2712
2713PH/03 A redirect router that has both "unseen" and "one_time" set does not
2714 work if there are any delivery delays because "one_time" forces the
2715 parent to be marked "delivered", so its unseen clone is never tried
2716 again. For this reason, Exim now forbids the simultaneous setting of
2717 these two options.
2718
2719PH/04 Change 4.11/85 fixed an obscure bug concerned with addresses that are
2720 redirected to themselves ("homonym" addresses). Read the long ChangeLog
2721 entry if you want to know the details. The fix, however, neglected to
2722 consider the case when local delivery batching is involved. The test for
2723 "previously delivered" was not happening when checking to see if an
2724 address could be batched with a previous (undelivered) one; under
2725 certain circumstances this could lead to multiple deliveries to the same
c2c19e9d 2726 address.

PH
2727
2728PH/05 Renamed the macro SOCKLEN_T as EXIM_SOCKLEN_T because AIX uses SOCKLEN_T

2731PH/06 A number of "verify =" ACL conditions have no options (e.g. verify =
2732 header_syntax) but Exim was just ignoring anything given after a slash.
2733 In particular, this caused confusion with an attempt to use "verify =
2734 reverse_host_lookup/defer_ok". An error is now given when options are
2735 supplied for verify items that do not have them. (Maybe reverse_host_
2736 lookup should have a defer_ok option, but that's a different point.)
2737
2738PH/07 Increase the size of the buffer for incoming SMTP commands from 512 (as

2788PH/19 When an Exim process that is running as root has to create an Exim log
2789 file, it does so in a subprocess that runs as exim:exim so as to get the
2790 ownership right at creation (otherwise, other Exim processes might see
2791 the file with the wrong ownership). There was no test for failure of this
2792 fork() call, which would lead to the process getting stuck as it waited
2793 for a non-existent subprocess. Forks do occasionally fail when resources
2794 run out. I reviewed all the other calls to fork(); they all seem to check
2795 for failure.

2797PH/20 When checking for unexpected SMTP input at connect time (before writing

2799 from the read() function. If the client had disconnected by this time,
2800 the result was a log entry for a synchronization error with an empty
2801 string after "input=" when read() returned zero. If read() returned -1
2802 (an event I could not check), uninitialized data bytes were printed.

PH
2814PH/24 The cyrus_sasl authenticator was advertising mechanisms for which it
2815 hadn't been configured. The fix is from Juergen Kreileder, who
2816 understands it better than I do:
2817
2818 "Here's what I see happening with three configured cyrus_sasl
2819 authenticators configured (plain, login, cram-md5):
2820
2821 On startup auth_cyrus_sasl_init() gets called for each of these.
2822 This means three calls to sasl_listmech() without a specified mech_list.
2823 => SASL tests which mechs of all available mechs actually work
2824 => three warnings about OTP not working
2825 => the returned list contains: plain, login, cram-md5, digest-md5, ...
2826
2827 With the patch, sasl_listmech() also gets called three times. But now
2828 SASL's mech_list option is set to the server_mech specified in the the
2829 authenticator. Or in other words, the answer from sasl_listmech()
2830 gets limited to just the mech you're testing for (which is different
2831 for each call.)
2832 => the return list contains just 'plain' or 'login', 'cram-md5' or
2833 nothing depending on the value of ob->server_mech.
2834
2835 I've just tested the patch: Authentication still works fine,
2836 unavailable mechs specified in the exim configuration are still
2837 caught, and the auth.log warnings about OTP are gone."

PH
2901PH/37 Exim used to check for duplicate addresses in the middle of routing, on
2902 the grounds that routing the same address twice would always produce the
2903 same answer. This might have been true once, but it is certainly no
2904 longer true now. Routing a child address may depend on the previous
2905 routing that produced that child. Some complicated redirection strategies
2906 went wrong when messages had multiple recipients, and made Exim's
2907 behaviour dependent on the order in which the addresses were given.
2908
2909 I have moved the duplicate checking until after the routing is complete.
2910 Exim scans the addresses that are assigned to local and remote
2911 transports, and removes any duplicates. This means that more work will be
2912 done, as duplicates will always all be routed, but duplicates are
2913 presumably rare, so I don't expect this is of any significance.
2914
2915 For deliveries to pipes, files, and autoreplies, the duplicate checking
2916 still happens during the routing process, since they are not going to be
2917 routed further.

2962 consistency with the overall process timeout, these timeouts are now
2963 treated as errors, giving rise to delivery failures by default. However,
2964 there is now a new Boolean option for the pipe transport called

2976A note about Exim versions 4.44 and 4.50
2977----------------------------------------
2978
2979Exim 4.50 was meant to be the next release after 4.43. It contains a lot of
2980changes of various kinds. As a consequence, a big documentation update was
2981needed. This delayed the release for rather longer than seemed good, especially
2982in the light of a couple of (minor) security issues. Therefore, the changes
2983that fixed bugs were backported into 4.43, to create a 4.44 maintenance
2984release. So 4.44 and 4.50 are in effect two different branches that both start
2985from 4.43.
2986
2987I have left the 4.50 change log unchanged; it contains all the changes since
29884.43. The change log for 4.44 is below; many of its items are identical to
2989those for 4.50. This seems to be the most sensible way to preserve the
2990historical information.

3010 was being done only for the command run by the queryprogram router. It is
3011 now done for all such subprocesses. The other cases are: ${run, transport
3012 filters, and the commands run by the lmtp and pipe transports.

3017 descriptors. Exim was using setrlimit() to set 1000 as a large value
3018 unlikely to be exceeded. Change 4.43/17 caused a lot of logging on these
3019 systems. I've change it so that if it can't get 1000, it tries for 256.

3068
306923. When checking ignore_target_hosts for an ipliteral router, no host name was
3070 being passed; this would have caused $sender_host_name to have been used if

309329. In an address list, if the pattern was not a regular expression, an empty
3094 subject address (from a bounce message) matched only if the pattern was an
3095 empty string. Non-empty patterns were not even tested. This was the wrong
3096 because it is perfectly reasonable to use an empty address as part of a
3097 database query. An empty address is now tested by patterns that are
3098 lookups. However, all the other forms of pattern expect the subject to
3099 contain a local part and a domain, and therefore, for them, an empty
3100 address still always fails if the pattern is not itself empty.

3109 $spool_inodes, and $log_inodes.

PH
311132. The RFC2047 encoding function was originally intended for short strings
3112 such as real names; it was not keeping to the 75-character limit for
3113 encoded words that the RFC imposes. It now respects the limit, and
3114 generates multiple encoded words if necessary. To be on the safe side, I
3115 have increased the buffer size for the ${rfc2047: expansion operator from
3116 1024 to 2048 bytes.
3117
063b1e99
PH
311833. It is now permitted to omit both strings after an "if" condition; if the
3119 condition is true, the result is "true". As before, when the second string
3120 is omitted, a false condition yields an empty string. This makes it less
3121 cumbersome to write custom ACL and router conditions.
3122
652e1b65
PH
312334. Failure to deliver a bounce message always caused it to be frozen, even if
3124 there was an errors_to setting on the router. The errors_to setting is now

PH
313136. The table in the code that translates DNS record types into text (T_A to
3132 "A" for instance) was missing entries for NS and CNAME. It is just possible
3133 that this could have caused confusion if both these types were looked up
3134 for the same domain, because the text type is used as part of Exim's
3135 per-process caching. But the chance of anyone hitting this buglet seems
3136 very small.

PH
313837. The dnsdb lookup has been extended in a number of ways.

316843. Did the same fix as 41 above for OpenSSL, which had the same infelicity.
3169

PH
317044. The "Exiscan patch" is now merged into the mainline Exim source.
3171
317245. Sometimes the final signoff response after QUIT could fail to get
3173 transmitted in the non-TLS case. Testing !tls_active instead of tls_active
3174 < 0 before doing a fflush(). This bug looks as though it goes back to the
3175 introduction of TLS in release 3.20, but "sometimes" must have been rare
3176 because the tests only now provoked it.
3177

PH
317846. Reset the locale to "C" after calling embedded Perl, in case it was changed
3179 (this can affect the format of dates).
3180

PH
318147. exim_tidydb, when checking for the continued existence of a message for
3182 which it has found a message-specific retry record, was not finding
3183 messages that were in split spool directories. Consequently, it was
3184 deleting retry records that should have stayed in existence.
3185

PH
318648. Steve fixed some bugs in eximstats.
3187
318849. The SPA authentication driver was not abandoning authentication and moving
3189 on to the next authenticator when an expansion was forced to fail,
3190 contradicting the general specification for all authenticators. Instead it
3191 was generating a temporary error. It now behaves as specified.
3192
26dd5a95
PH
319350. The default ordering of permitted cipher suites for GnuTLS was pessimal
3194 (the order specifies the preference for clients). The order is now AES256,
3195 AES128, 3DES, ARCFOUR128.
3196

PH
319751. Small patch to Sieve code - explicitly set From: when generating an
3198 autoreply.
3199
1c5466b9
PH
320052. Exim crashed if a remote delivery caused a very long error message to be
3201 recorded - for instance if somebody sent an entire SpamAssassin report back
3202 as a large number of 550 error lines. This bug was coincidentally fixed by
3203 increasing the size of one of Exim's internal buffers (big_buffer) that
3204 happened as part of the Exiscan merge. However, to be on the safe side, I
3205 have made the code more robust (and fixed the comments that describe what
3206 is going on).
3207
55ee9ee3
PH
320853. Now that there can be additional text after "Completed" in log lines (if
3209 the queue_time_overall log selector is set), a one-byte patch to exigrep
3210 was needed to allow it to recognize "Completed" as not the last thing in
3211 the line.
3212
d38f8232
PH
321354. The LDAP lookup was not handling a return of LDAP_RES_SEARCH_REFERENCE. A
3214 patch that reportedly fixes this has been added. I am not expert enough to
3215 create a test for it. This is what the patch creator wrote:
3216
3217 "I found a little strange behaviour of ldap code when working with
3218 Windows 2003 AD Domain, where users was placed in more than one
3219 Organization Units. When I tried to give exim partial DN, the exit code
3220 of ldap_search was unknown to exim because of LDAP_RES_SEARCH_REFERENCE.
3221 But simultaneously result of request was absolutely normal ldap result,
3222 so I produce this patch..."
3223
3295e65b
PH
3224 Later: it seems that not all versions of LDAP support LDAP_RES_SEARCH_
3225 REFERENCE, so I have modified the code to exclude the patch when that macro
3226 is not defined.
3227
7102e136
PH
322855. Some experimental protocols are using DNS PTR records for new purposes. The
3229 keys for these records are domain names, not reversed IP addresses. The
b975ba52
PH
3230 dnsdb PTR lookup now tests whether its key is an IP address. If not, it
3231 leaves it alone. Component reversal etc. now happens only for IP addresses.

323456. Improve error message when ldap_search() fails in OpenLDAP or Solaris LDAP.

PH
323657. Double the size of the debug message buffer (to 2048) so that more of very
3237 long debug lines gets shown.
3238
18ce445d
PH
323958. The exicyclog utility now does better if the number of log files to keep
3240 exceeds 99. In this case, it numbers them 001, 002 ... instead of 01, 02...
3241

PH
324259. Two changes related to the smtp_active_hostname option:
3243
3244 (1) $smtp_active_hostname is now available as a variable.
3245 (2) The default for smtp_banner uses $smtp_active_hostname instead
3246 of $primary_hostname.
3247
b975ba52
PH
324860. The host_aton() function is supposed to be passed a string that is known
3249 to be a valid IP address. However, in the case of IPv6 addresses, it was
3250 not checking this. This is a hostage to fortune. Exim now panics and dies
3251 if the condition is not met. A case was found where this could be provoked
85b87bc2
PH
3252 from a dnsdb PTR lookup with an IPv6 address that had more than 8
3253 components; fortuitously, this particular loophole had already been fixed
3254 by change 4.50/55 above.
3255
3256 If there are any other similar loopholes, the new check in host_aton()
3257 itself should stop them being exploited. The report I received stated that
3258 data on the command line could provoke the exploit when Exim was running as
3259 exim, but did not say which command line option was involved. All I could
3260 find was the use of -be with a bad dnsdb PTR lookup, and in that case it is
3261 running as the user.

3263
326461. There was a buffer overflow vulnerability in the SPA authentication code
3265 (which came originally from the Samba project). I have added a test to the
3266 spa_base64_to_bits() function which I hope fixes it.

326962. Configuration update for GNU/Hurd and variations. Updated Makefile-GNU and
3270 os.h-GNU, and added configuration files for GNUkFreeBSD and GNUkNetBSD.
3271
d95f9fdb
PH
327263. The daemon start-up calls getloadavg() while still root for those OS that
3273 need the first call to be done as root, but it missed one case: when
3274 deliver_queue_load_max is set with deliver_drop_privilege. This is
3275 necessary for the benefit of the queue runner, because there is no re-exec
3276 when deliver_drop_privilege is set.
3277
86b8287f
PH
327864. A call to exiwhat cut short delays set up by "delay" modifiers in ACLs.
3279 This has been fixed.
3280
60dc5e56
PH
328165. Caching of lookup data for "hosts =" ACL conditions, when a named host list
3282 was in use, was not putting the data itself into the right store pool;
3283 consequently, it could be overwritten for a subsequent message in the same
3284 SMTP connection. (Fix 4.40/11 dealt with the non-cache case, but overlooked
3285 the caching.)
3286
533244af
PH
328766. Added hosts_max_try_hardlimit to the smtp transport, default 50.
3288
a5a28604
PH
328967. The string_is_ip_address() function returns 0, 4, or 6, for "no an IP
3290 address", "IPv4 address", and "IPv6 address", respectively. Some calls of
3291 the function were treating the return as a boolean value, which happened to
3292 work because 0=false and not-0=true, but is not correct code.
3293
7e634d24
PH
329468. The host_aton() function was not handling scoped IPv6 addresses (those
3295 with, for example, "%eth0" on the end) correctly.
3296
3e11c26b
PH
329769. Fixed some compiler warnings in acl.c for the bitmaps specified with
3298 negated items (that is, ~something) in unsigned ints. Some compilers
3299 apparently mutter when there is no cast.
3300
6729cf78
PH
330170. If an address verification called from an ACL failed, and did not produce a
3302 user-specific message (i.e. there was only a "system" message), nothing was
3303 put in $acl_verify_message. In this situation, it now puts the system
3304 message there.
3305
00f00ca5
PH
330671. Change 4.23/11 added synchronization checking at the start of an SMTP
3307 session; change 4.31/43 added the unwanted input to the log line - except
3308 that it did not do this in the start of session case. It now does.
3309
c9bdd01c
PH
331072. After a timeout in a callout SMTP session, Exim still sent a QUIT command.
3311 This is wrong and can cause the other end to generate a synchronization
3312 error if it is another Exim or anything else that does the synchronization
3313 check. A QUIT command is no longer sent after a timeout.
3314
d43194df
PH
331573. $host_lookup_deferred has been added, to make it easier to detect DEFERs
3316 during host lookups.
3317

PH
331874. The defer_ok option of callout verification was not working if it was used
3319 when verifying addresses in header lines, that is, for this case:
3320
3321 verify = header_sender/callout=defer_ok
3322
76a2d7ba
PH
332375. A backgrounded daemon closed stdin/stdout/stderr on entry; this meant that
3324 those file descriptors could be used for SMTP connections. If anything
3325 wrote to stderr (the example that came up was "warn" in embedded Perl), it
3326 could be sent to the SMTP client, causing chaos. The daemon now opens
3327 stdin, stdout, and stderr to /dev/null when it puts itself into the
3328 background.
3329
333076. Arrange for output from Perl's "warn" command to be written to Exim's main
3331 log by default. The user can override this with suitable Perl magic.
3332
04f7d5b9
PH
333377. The use of log_message on a "discard" ACL verb, which is supposed to add to
3334 the log message when discard triggers, was not working for the DATA ACL or
3335 for the non-SMTP ACL.
3336
bc60667e
PH
333778. Error message wording change in sieve.c.
3338
bb6e88ff
PH
333979. If smtp_accept_max_per_host was set, the number of connections could be
3340 restricted to fewer than expected, because the daemon was trying to set up
3341 a new connection before checking whether the processes handling previous
3342 connections had finished. The check for completed processes is now done
3343 earlier. On busy systems, this bug wouldn't be noticed because something
3344 else would have woken the daemon, and it would have reaped the completed
3345 process earlier.
3346
1e70f85b
PH
334780. If a message was submitted locally by a user whose login name contained one
3348 or more spaces (ugh!), the spool file that Exim wrote was not re-readable.
3349 It caused a spool format error. I have fixed the spool reading code. A
3350 related problem was that the "from" clause in the Received: line became
3351 illegal because of the space(s). It is now covered by ${quote_local_part.
3352
335381. Included the latest eximstats from Steve (adds average sizes to HTML Top
3354 tables).

3367----------------------------------------------------
3368See the note above about the 4.44 and 4.50 releases.
3369----------------------------------------------------
3370
3371
3372Exim version 4.44
3373-----------------
3374
3375 1. Change 4.43/35 introduced a bug that caused file counts to be
3376 incorrectly computed when quota_filecount was set in an appendfile
3377 transport
3378
3379 2. Closing a stable door: arrange to panic-die if setitimer() ever fails. The
3380 bug fixed in 4.43/37 would have been diagnosed quickly if this had been in
3381 place.
3382
3383 3. Give more explanation in the error message when the command for a transport
3384 filter fails to execute.
3385
3386 4. There are several places where Exim runs a non-Exim command in a
3387 subprocess. The SIGUSR1 signal should be disabled for these processes. This
3388 was being done only for the command run by the queryprogram router. It is
3389 now done for all such subprocesses. The other cases are: ${run, transport
3390 filters, and the commands run by the lmtp and pipe transports.
3391
3392 5. Some older OS have a limit of 256 on the maximum number of file
3393 descriptors. Exim was using setrlimit() to set 1000 as a large value
3394 unlikely to be exceeded. Change 4.43/17 caused a lot of logging on these
3395 systems. I've change it so that if it can't get 1000, it tries for 256.
3396
3397 6. "control=submission" was allowed, but had no effect, in a DATA ACL. This
3398 was an oversight, and furthermore, ever since the addition of extra
3399 co
