6-----------------

8TF/01 Correctly close the server side of TLS when forking for delivery.
9
10 When a message was received over SMTP with TLS, Exim failed to clear up
11 the incoming connection properly after forking off the child process to
12 deliver the message. In some situations the subsequent outgoing
13 delivery connection happened to have the same fd number as the incoming
14 connection previously had. Exim would try to use TLS and fail, logging
15 a "Bad file descriptor" error.

239TF/01 Fix ultimate retry timeouts for intermittently deliverable recipients.
240
241 When a queue runner is handling a message, Exim first routes the
242 recipient addresses, during which it prunes them based on the retry
243 hints database. After that it attempts to deliver the message to
244 any remaining recipients. It then updates the hints database using
245 the retry rules.
246
247 So if a recipient address works intermittently, it can get repeatedly
248 deferred at routing time. The retry hints record remains fresh so the
249 address never reaches the final cutoff time.
250
251 This is a fairly common occurrence when a user is bumping up against
252 their storage quota. Exim had some logic in its local delivery code
253 to deal with this. However it did not apply to per-recipient defers
254 in remote deliveries, e.g. over LMTP to a separate IMAP message store.
255
1ddeb334
TF
256 This change adds a proper retry rule check during routing so that the
257 final cutoff time is checked against the message's age. We only do
258 this check if there is an address retry record and there is not a
259 domain retry record; this implies that previous attempts to handle
260 the address had the retry_use_local_parts option turned on. We use
261 this as an approximation for the destination being like a local
262 delivery, as in LMTP.
67bd1ab3
TF
263
264 I suspect this new check makes the old local delivery cutoff check
265 redundant, but I have not verified this so I left the code in place.

269 Test 0254 submits a message to Exim with the header
270
271 Resent-From: f
272
273 When I ran the test suite under the user fanf2, Exim expanded
274 the header to contain my full name, whereas it should have added
275 a Resent-Sender: header. It erroneously treats any prefix of the
276 username as equal to the username.
277
278 This change corrects that bug.

299JH/14 SMTP PRDR (http://www.eric-a-hall.com/specs/draft-hall-prdr-00.txt).
300 Server implementation by Todd Lyons, client by JH.
301 Only enabled when compiled with EXPERIMENTAL_PRDR. A new
302 config variable "prdr_enable" controls whether the server
303 advertises the facility. If the client requests PRDR a new
304 acl_data_smtp_prdr ACL is called once for each recipient, after
305 the body content is received and before the acl_smtp_data ACL.
306 The client is controlled by bolth of: a hosts_try_prdr option
307 on the smtp transport, and the server advertisement.
308 Default client logging of deliveries and rejections involving
309 PRDR are flagged with the string "PRDR".

587TF/03 Make the exiwhat support code safe for signals. Previously Exim might
588 lock up or crash if it happened to be inside a call to libc when it
589 got a SIGUSR1 from exiwhat.
590
591 The SIGUSR1 handler appends the current process status to the process
592 log which is later printed by exiwhat. It used to use the general
593 purpose logging code to do this, but several functions it calls are
594 not safe for signals.
595
596 The new output code in the SIGUSR1 handler is specific to the process
597 log, and simple enough that it's easy to inspect for signal safety.
598 Removing some special cases also simplifies the general logging code.
599 Removing the spurious timestamps from the process log simplifies
600 exiwhat.

TF
602TF/04 Improved ratelimit ACL condition.
603
604 The /noupdate option has been deprecated in favour of /readonly which
605 has clearer semantics. The /leaky, /strict, and /readonly update modes
606 are mutually exclusive. The update mode is no longer included in the
607 database key; it just determines when the database is updated. (This
608 means that when you upgrde Exim will forget old rate measurements.)
609
610 Exim now checks that the per_* options are used with an update mode that
611 makes sense for the current ACL. For example, when Exim is processing a
612 message (e.g. acl_smtp_rcpt or acl_smtp_data, etc.) you can specify
613 per_mail/leaky or per_mail/strict; otherwise (e.g. in acl_smtp_helo) you
614 must specify per_mail/readonly. If you omit the update mode it defaults to
615 /leaky where that makes sense (as before) or /readonly where required.
616
617 The /noupdate option is now undocumented but still supported for
618 backwards compatibility. It is equivalent to /readonly except that in
619 ACLs where /readonly is required you may specify /leaky/noupdate or
620 /strict/noupdate which are treated the same as /readonly.
621
622 A useful new feature is the /count= option. This is a generalization
623 of the per_byte option, so that you can measure the throughput of other
624 aggregate values. For example, the per_byte option is now equivalent
625 to per_mail/count=${if >{0}{$message_size} {0} {$message_size} }.
626
627 The per_rcpt option has been generalized using the /count= mechanism
628 (though it's more complicated than the per_byte equivalence). When it is
629 used in acl_smtp_rcpt, the per_rcpt option adds recipients to the
630 measured rate one at a time; if it is used later (e.g. in acl_smtp_data)
631 or in a non-SMTP ACL it adds all the recipients in one go. (The latter
632 /count=$recipients_count behaviour used to work only in non-SMTP ACLs.)
633 Note that using per_rcpt with a non-readonly update mode in more than
634 one ACL will cause the recipients to be double-counted. (The per_mail
635 and per_byte options don't have this problem.)
636
637 The handling of very low rates has changed slightly. If the computed rate
638 is less than the event's count (usually one) then this event is the first
639 after a long gap. In this case the rate is set to the same as this event's
640 count, so that the first message of a spam run is counted properly.
641
642 The major new feature is a mechanism for counting the rate of unique
643 events. The new per_addr option counts the number of different
644 recipients that someone has sent messages to in the last time period. It
645 behaves like per_rcpt if all the recipient addresses are different, but
646 duplicate recipient addresses do not increase the measured rate. Like
647 the /count= option this is a general mechanism, so the per_addr option
648 is equivalent to per_rcpt/unique=$local_part@$domain. You can, for
649 example, measure the rate that a client uses different sender addresses
650 with the options per_mail/unique=$sender_address. There are further
651 details in the main documentation.

1201 Note to Michael Haardt: I had to rename some vars in sieve.c. They
1202 were called 'true' and it seems that C99 defines that as a reserved
1203 keyword to be used with 'bool' variable types. That means you could
1204 not include C99-style headers which use bools without triggering
1205 build errors in sieve.c.

1221-----------------
1222
1223PH/01 Another patch from the Sieve maintainer.
1224
6a3bceb1
PH
1225PH/02 When an IPv6 address is converted to a string for single-key lookup
1226 in an address list (e.g. for an item such as "net24-dbm;/net/works"),
1227 dots are used instead of colons so that keys in lsearch files need not
1228 contain colons. This was done some time before quoting was made available
1229 in lsearch files. However, iplsearch files do require colons in IPv6 keys
1230 (notated using the quote facility) so as to distinguish them from IPv4
1231 keys. This meant that lookups for IP addresses in host lists did not work
1232 for iplsearch lookups.
1233
1234 This has been fixed by arranging for IPv6 addresses to be expressed with
1235 colons if the lookup type is iplsearch. This is not incompatible, because
1236 previously such lookups could never work.
1237
1238 The situation is now rather anomolous, since one *can* have colons in
1239 ordinary lsearch keys. However, making the change in all cases is
1240 incompatible and would probably break a number of configurations.

0806a9c5
MH
1245MH/01 The "spam" ACL condition code contained a sscanf() call with a %s
1246 conversion specification without a maximum field width, thereby enabling
1247 a rogue spamd server to cause a buffer overflow. While nobody in their
1248 right mind would setup Exim to query an untrusted spamd server, an
1249 attacker that gains access to a server running spamd could potentially
1250 exploit this vulnerability to run arbitrary code as the Exim user.

0f2cbd1b
MH
1255MH/02 The dsearch lookup now uses lstat(2) instead of stat(2) to look for
1256 a directory entry by the name of the lookup key. Previously, if a
1257 symlink pointed to a non-existing file or a file in a directory that
1258 Exim lacked permissions to read, a lookup for a key matching that
1259 symlink would fail. Now it is enough that a matching directory entry
1260 exists, symlink or not. (Bugzilla 503.)

1337 if a client was not listed at all, or was listed with a value other than
1338 127.0.0.2, in the X list, but was listed with 127.0.0.2 in the Y list,

1438PH/28 The $smtp_command and $smtp_command_argument variables were not correct

a14e5636
PH
1443PH/29 SMTP synchronization checks are implemented when a command is read -
1444 there is a check that no more input is waiting when there shouldn't be
1445 any. However, for some commands, a delay in an ACL can mean that it is
1446 some time before the response is written. In this time, more input might
1447 arrive, invalidly. So now there are extra checks after an ACL has run for
1448 HELO/EHLO and after the predata ACL, and likewise for MAIL and RCPT when
1449 pipelining has not been advertised.

58c01c94
PH
1461PH/33 Compile failed with OpenSSL 0.9.8e. This was due to a coding error in
1462 Exim which did not show up earlier: it was assuming that a call to
1463 SSL_CTX_set_info_callback() might give an error value. In fact, there is
1464 no error. In previous releases of OpenSSL, SSL_CTX_set_info_callback()
1465 was a macro that became an assignment, so it seemed to work. This has
1466 changed to a proper function call with a void return, hence the compile
1467 error. Exim's code has been fixed.

1495PH/40 When Exim receives a message, it writes the login name, uid, and gid of
1496 whoever called Exim into the -H file. In the case of the daemon it was
1497 behaving confusingly. When first started, it used values for whoever
1498 started the daemon, but after a SIGHUP it used the Exim user (because it
1499 calls itself on a restart). I have changed the code so that it now always
1500 uses the Exim user.

1505 with PIPELINING or a stupid MUA), the error message that was given to the
1506 RCPT commands is included in the rejection of the DATA command. This is

PH
1523 the response to the final '.' that terminates a message, but only in the
1524 case where the client has not sent further data following the '.'
1525 (unfortunately, this is allowed). However, in many cases there won't be
1526 any further data because there won't be any more messages to send. A call
1527 to select() can be used: if it shows that the input is "ready", there is
1528 either input waiting, or the socket has been closed. An attempt to read
1529 the next input character can distinguish the two cases. Previously, Exim
58eb016e 1530 would have sent an OK response which the client would never have see.

1541PH/01 Two more bugs that were introduced by 4.64/PH/07, in addition to the one
1542 fixed by 4.65/MH/01 (is this a record?) are fixed:
1543
1544 (i) An empty string was always treated as zero by the numeric comparison
1545 operators. This behaviour has been restored.
1546
1547 (ii) It is documented that the numeric comparison operators always treat
1548 their arguments as decimal numbers. This was broken in that numbers
1549 starting with 0 were being interpreted as octal.
1550
1551 While fixing these problems I realized that there was another issue that
1552 hadn't been noticed. Values of message_size_limit (both the global option
1553 and the transport option) were treated as octal if they started with 0.
1554 The documentation was vague. These values are now always treated as
1555 decimal, and I will make that clear in the documentation.

1580TK/01 Bugzilla #401. Fix DK spooling code so that it can overwrite a
1581 leftover -K file (the existence of which was triggered by #402).
1582 While we were at it, introduced process PID as part of the -K
1583 filename. This should rule out race conditions when creating
1584 these files.
1585
1586TK/02 Bugzilla #402. Apply patch from Simon Arlott, speeding up DK signing
1587 processing considerably. Previous code took too long for large mails,
1588 triggering a timeout which in turn triggers #401.
1589
1590TK/03 Introduced HAVE_LINUX_SENDFILE to os.h-Linux. Currently only used
1591 in the DK code in transports.c. sendfile() is not really portable,
1592 hence the _LINUX specificness.

1594TF/01 In the add_headers option to the mail command in an Exim filter,
1595 there was a bug that Exim would claim a syntax error in any
1596 header after the first one which had an odd number of characters
1597 in the field name.

PH
1599PH/01 If a server that rejects MAIL FROM:<> was the target of a sender
1600 callout verification, Exim cached a "reject" for the entire domain. This
1601 is correct for most verifications, but it is not correct for a recipient
1602 verification with use_sender or use_postmaster set, because in that case
1603 the callout does not use MAIL FROM:<>. Exim now distinguishes the special
1604 case of MAIL FROM:<> rejection from other early rejections (e.g.
1605 rejection of HELO). When verifying a recipient using a non-null MAIL
1606 address, the cache is ignored if it shows MAIL FROM:<> rejection.
1607 Whatever the result of the callout, the value of the domain cache is
1608 left unchanged (for any other kind of callout, getting as far as trying
1609 RCPT means that the domain itself is ok).

1617 ignores EPIPE as well.

PH
1643PH/11 Callouts were setting the name used for EHLO/HELO from $smtp_active_
1644 hostname. This is wrong, because it relates to the incoming message (and
1645 probably the interface on which it is arriving) and not to the outgoing
1646 callout (which could be using a different interface). This has been
1647 changed to use the value of the helo_data option from the smtp transport
1648 instead - this is what is used when a message is actually being sent. If
1649 there is no remote transport (possible with a router that sets up host
1650 addresses), $smtp_active_hostname is used.
6ea85e9a 1651
14aa5a05 1652PH/12 Installed Andrey Panin's patch to add a dovecot authenticator. Various
7befa435 1653 tweaks were necessary in order to get it to work (see also 21 below):
14aa5a05
PH
1654 (a) The code assumed that strncpy() returns a negative number on buffer
1655 overflow, which isn't the case. Replaced with Exim's string_format()
1656 function.
1657 (b) There were several signed/unsigned issues. I just did the minimum
1658 hacking in of casts. There is scope for a larger refactoring.
1659 (c) The code used strcasecmp() which is not a standard C function.
1660 Replaced with Exim's strcmpic() function.
1661 (d) The code set only $1; it now sets $auth1 as well.
1662 (e) A simple test gave the error "authentication client didn't specify
1663 service in request". It would seem that Dovecot has changed its
1664 interface. Fortunately there's a specification; I followed it and
1665 changed what the client sends and it appears to be working now.

PH
1670PH/14 Corrected misleading output from -bv when -v was also used. Suppose the
1671 address A is aliased to B and C, where B exists and C does not. Without
1672 -v the output is "A verified" because verification stops after a
1673 successful redirection if more than one address is generated. However,
1674 with -v the child addresses are also verified. Exim was outputting "A
1675 failed to verify" and then showing the successful verification for C,
1676 with its parentage. It now outputs "B failed to verify", showing B's
1677 parentage before showing the successful verification of C.

PH
1679PH/15 Applied Michael Deutschmann's patch to allow DNS black list processing to
1680 look up a TXT record in a specific list after matching in a combined
1681 list.
1682
322050c2
PH
1683PH/16 It seems that the options setting for the resolver (RES_DEFNAMES and
1684 RES_DNSRCH) can affect the behaviour of gethostbyname() and friends when
1685 they consult the DNS. I had assumed they would set it the way they
1686 wanted; and indeed my experiments on Linux seem to show that in some
1687 cases they do (I could influence IPv6 lookups but not IPv4 lookups).
1688 To be on the safe side, however, I have now made the interface to
1689 host_find_byname() similar to host_find_bydns(), with an argument
1690 containing the DNS resolver options. The host_find_byname() function now
1691 sets these options at its start, just as host_find_bydns() does. The smtp
1692 transport options dns_qualify_single and dns_search_parents are passed to
1693 host_find_byname() when gethostbyname=TRUE in this transport. Other uses
1694 of host_find_byname() use the default settings of RES_DEFNAMES
1695 (qualify_single) but not RES_DNSRCH (search_parents).
1696
08955dd3
PH
1697PH/17 Applied (a modified version of) Nico Erfurth's patch to make
1698 spool_read_header() do less string testing, by means of a preliminary
1699 switch on the second character of optional "-foo" lines. (This is
1700 overdue, caused by the large number of possibilities that now exist.
1701 Originally there were few.) While I was there, I also converted the
1702 str(n)cmp tests so they don't re-test the leading "-" and the first
1703 character, in the hope this might squeeze out yet more improvement.
1704
1eccaa59
PH
1705PH/18 Two problems with "group" syntax in header lines when verifying: (1) The
1706 flag allowing group syntax was set by the header_syntax check but not
1707 turned off, possible causing trouble later; (2) The flag was not being
1708 set at all for the header_verify test, causing "group"-style headers to
1709 be rejected. I have now set it in this case, and also caused header_
1710 verify to ignore an empty address taken from a group. While doing this, I
1711 came across some other cases where the code for allowing group syntax
1712 while scanning a header line wasn't quite right (mostly, not resetting
1713 the flag correctly in the right place). These bugs could have caused
1714 trouble for malformed header lines. I hope it is now all correct.
1715
602e59e5
PH
1716PH/19 The functions {pwcheck,saslauthd}_verify_password() are always called
1717 with the "reply" argument non-NULL. The code, however (which originally
1718 came from elsewhere) had *some* tests for NULL when it wrote to *reply,
1719 but it didn't always do it. This confused somebody who was copying the
1720 code for some other use. I have removed all the tests.
1721
411ef850
PH
1722PH/20 It was discovered that the GnuTLS code had support for RSA_EXPORT, a
1723 feature that was used to support insecure browsers during the U.S. crypto
1724 embargo. It requires special client support, and Exim is probably the
1725 only MTA that supported it -- and would never use it because real RSA is
1726 always available. This code has been removed, because it had the bad
1727 effect of slowing Exim down by computing (never used) parameters for the
1728 RSA_EXPORT functionality.
1729
7befa435
PH
1730PH/21 On the advice of Timo Sirainen, added a check to the dovecot
1731 authenticator to fail if there's a tab character in the incoming data
1732 (there should never be unless someone is messing about, as it's supposed
1733 to be base64-encoded). Also added, on Timo's advice, the "secured" option
1734 if the connection is using TLS or if the remote IP is the same as the
1735 local IP, and the "valid-client-cert option" if a client certificate has
1736 been verified.
1737
48da4259 1738PH/22 As suggested by Dennis Davis, added a server_condition option to *all*

1739 authenticators. This can be used for authorization after authentication
1740 succeeds. (In the case of plaintext, it servers for both authentication
1741 and authorization.)

PH
1767
1768PH/30 Exim was sometimes attempting to deliver messages that had suffered
1769 address errors (4xx response to RCPT) over the same connection as other
1770 messages routed to the same hosts. Such deliveries are always "forced",
1771 so retry times are not inspected. This resulted in far too many retries
1772 for the affected addresses. The effect occurred only when there were more
1773 hosts than the hosts_max_try setting in the smtp transport when it had
1774 the 4xx errors. Those hosts that it had tried were not added to the list
1775 of hosts for which the message was waiting, so if all were tried, there
1776 was no problem. Two fixes have been applied:
1777
1778 (i) If there are any address or message errors in an SMTP delivery, none
1779 of the hosts (tried or untried) are now added to the list of hosts
1780 for which the message is waiting, so the message should not be a
1781 candidate for sending over the same connection that was used for a
1782 successful delivery of some other message. This seems entirely
1783 reasonable: after all the message is NOT "waiting for some host".
1784 This is so "obvious" that I'm not sure why it wasn't done
1785 previously. Hope I haven't missed anything, but it can't do any
1786 harm, as the worst effect is to miss an optimization.
1787
1788 (ii) If, despite (i), such a delivery is accidentally attempted, the
1789 routing retry time is respected, so at least it doesn't keep
1790 hammering the server.

1801PH/34 The spec says: "With one important exception, whenever a domain list is

520de300
PH
1805PH/35 The error "getsockname() failed: connection reset by peer" was being
1806 written to the panic log as well as the main log, but it isn't really
1807 panic-worthy as it just means the connection died rather early on. I have
1808 removed the panic log writing for the ECONNRESET error when getsockname()
1809 fails.
1810
48c7f9e2
PH
1811PH/36 After a 4xx response to a RCPT error, that address was delayed (in queue
1812 runs only) independently of the message's sender address. This meant
1813 that, if the 4xx error was in fact related to the sender, a different
1814 message to the same recipient with a different sender could confuse
1815 things. In particualar, this can happen when sending to a greylisting
1816 server, but other circumstances could also provoke similar problems.
1817 I have changed the default so that the retry time for these errors is now
1818 based a combination of the sender and recipient addresses. This change
1819 can be overridden by setting address_retry_include_sender=false in the
1820 smtp transport.

PH
1822PH/37 For LMTP over TCP/IP (the smtp transport), error responses from the

1825 same for both kinds of LMTP.

2088PH/02 When tcp-wrappers is called from Exim, it returns only "deny" or "allow".

2090 Unfortunately, if there is a major crisis, such as a disk failure,
2091 tcp-wrappers gives "deny", whereas what one would like would be some
2092 kind of temporary error. A kludge has been added to help with this.
2093 Before calling hosts_ctl(), errno is set zero. If the result is "deny", a
2094 554 error is used if errno is still zero or contains ENOENT (which occurs
2095 if either of the /etc/hosts.{allow,deny} files is missing). Otherwise, a
2096 451 error is used.

2135 code found IPv4 interfaces correctly, but gave incorrect values for the
2136 IPv6 interfaces. In particular, ::1 was not found. The effect in Exim was
2137 that it would not match correctly against @[] and not recognize the IPv6
2138 addresses as local.

2181 autoreply, Exim could try to deliver to a non-existent relative file

2204 (a) Failures to set uid/gid, the current directory, or a process leader
2205 in a subprocess such as that created by queryprogram now generate
2206 suitable debugging ouput when -d is set.
2207

2210 the subprocess without attempting to change uid/gid.

2215PH/16 As discussed on the list in Nov/Dec: Exim no longer looks at the
2216 additional section of a DNS packet that returns MX or SRV records.
2217 Instead, it always explicitly searches for A/AAAA records. This avoids
2218 major problems that occur when a DNS server includes only records of one
2219 type (A or AAAA) in an MX/SRV packet. A byproduct of this change has
2220 fixed another bug: if SRV records were looked up and the corresponding
2221 address records were *not* found in the additional section, the port
2222 values from the SRV records were lost.

2224PH/17 If a delivery to a pipe, file, or autoreply was deferred, Exim was not

PH
2232PH/19 When calculating a retry time, Exim used to measure the "time since
2233 failure" by looking at the "first failed" field in the retry record. Now
2234 it does not use this if it is later than than the arrival time of the
2235 message. Instead it uses the arrival time. This makes for better
2236 behaviour in cases where some deliveries succeed, thus re-setting the
2237 "first failed" field. An example is a quota failure for a huge message
2238 when small messages continue to be delivered. Without this change, the
2239 "time since failure" will always be short, possible causing more frequent
2240 delivery attempts for the huge message than are intended.

2337PH/42 The content-scanning code uses fopen() to create files in which to put

2340 files with open(), and sets the required mode explicitly. Thus, these
2341 files were ending up world-writeable. This was not a big issue, because,
2342 being within the spool directory, they were not world-accessible. I have
2343 created a function called modefopen, which takes an additional mode
2344 argument. It sets umask(777), creates the file, chmods it to the required
2345 mode, then resets the umask. All the relevant calls to fopen() in the

2354PH/45 When the plaintext authenticator is running as a client, the server's
2355 challenges are checked to ensure they are valid base64 strings. By
2356 default, the authentication attempt is cancelled if an invalid string is
2357 received. Setting client_ignore_invalid_base64 true ignores these errors.
2358 The decoded challenge strings are now placed in $auth1, $auth2, etc. as
2359 they are received. Thus, the responses can be made to depend on the
2360 challenges. If an invalid string is ignored, an empty string is placed in
2361 the variable.

2381PH/52 Two bugs concerned with error handling when the smtp transport is
2382 used in LMTP mode:
2383
2384 (i) Exim was not creating retry information for temporary errors given
2385 for individual recipients after the DATA command when the smtp transport
2386 was used in LMTP mode. This meant that they could be retried too
2387 frequently, and not timed out correctly.
2388
2389 (ii) Exim was setting the flag that allows error details to be returned
2390 for LMTP errors on RCPT commands, but not for LMTP errors for individual
2391 recipients that were returned after the DATA command.
2392
2393PH/53 This is related to PH/52, but is more general: for any failing address,
2394 when detailed error information was permitted to be returned to the
2395 sender, but the error was temporary, then after the final timeout, only
2396 "retry timeout exceeded" was returned. Now it returns the full error as
2397 well as "retry timeout exceeded".

2467PH/71 Fixed an obscure and subtle bug (thanks Alexander & Matthias). The
2468 function verify_get_ident() calls ip_connect() to connect a socket, but
2469 if the "connect()" function timed out, ip_connect() used to close the
2470 socket. However, verify_get_ident() also closes the socket later, and in
2471 between Exim writes to the log, which may get opened at this point. When
2472 the socket was closed in ip_connect(), the log could get the same file
2473 descriptor number as the socket. This naturally causes chaos. The fix is
2474 not to close the socket in ip_connect(); the socket should be closed by
2475 the function that creates it. There was only one place in the code where
2476 this was missing, in the iplookup router, which I don't think anybody now
2477 uses, but I've fixed it anyway.

2500
2501 (2) Treat a missing third argument of ${prvscheck as if it were an empty
2502 string.
2503
2504 (3) Reset the variables that are obtained from the first argument of
2505 ${prvscheck and used in the second argument before leaving the code,
2506 because their memory is reclaimed, so using them afterwards may do
2507 silly things.
2508
2509 (4) Tidy up the code for expanding the arguments of ${prvscheck one by
2510 one (it's much easier than Tom thought :-).

2533PH/06 When a client host used a correct literal IP address in a HELO or EHLO
2534 command, (for example, EHLO [1.2.3.4]) and the client's IP address was
2535 not being looked up in the rDNS to get a host name, Exim was showing the
2536 IP address twice in Received: lines, even though the IP addresses were
2537 identical. For example:
2538
2539 Received: from [1.2.3.4] (helo=[1.2.3.4])
2540
2541 However, if the real host name was known, it was omitting the HELO data
2542 if it matched the actual IP address. This has been tidied up so that it
2543 doesn't show the same IP address twice.

2569PH/10 Exim was violating RFC 3834 ("Recommendations for Automatic Responses to

2571
2572 Auto-submitted: auto-generated
2573
2574 in the messages that it generates (bounce messages and others, such as
2575 warnings). In the case of bounce messages for non-SMTP mesages, there was
2576 also a typo: it was using "Auto_submitted" (underscore instead of
2577 hyphen). Since every message generated by Exim is necessarily in response
2578 to another message, thes have all been changed to:
2579
2580 Auto-Submitted: auto-replied
2581
2582 in accordance with these statements in the RFC:
2583
2584 The auto-replied keyword:

2635 addresses acquired from the DNS when checking that the found name did
2636 have the original IP as one of its addresses. Since any found IPv6
2637 addresses are likely to be in abbreviated form, the comparison could
2638 fail. Luckily, there already exists a function for doing the comparison
2639 by converting both addresses to binary, so now that is used instead of
2640 the text comparison.

2938 with the definition in sysexits.h (which is #included earlier).
2939 Fortunately, Exim does not actually use EX_OK. The code used to try to
2940 preserve the sysexits.h value, by assumimg that macro definitions were
2941 scanned for macro replacements. I have been disabused of this notion,
2942 so now the code just undefines EX_OK before #including unistd.h.

2947 This seems wrong - if the receiver was accepting one byte at a time it
2948 would take for ever. The timeout is now adjusted when this happens. It
2949 doesn't have to be particularly precise.

3153TK/03 Fix ACL "regex" condition not being available in MIME ACL.
3154
3155PH/01 Installed a patch from the Sieve maintainer that allows -bf to be used
3156 to test Sieve filters that use "vacation".
3157
3158PH/02 Installed a slightly modified version of Nikos Mavrogiannopoulos' patch
3159 that changes the way the GnuTLS parameters are stored in the cache file.
3160 The new format can be generated externally. For backward compatibility,
3161 if the data in the cache doesn't make sense, Exim assumes it has read an
3162 old-format file, and it generates new data and writes a new file. This
3163 means that you can't go back to an older release without removing the
3164 file.
3165
3166PH/03 A redirect router that has both "unseen" and "one_time" set does not
3167 work if there are any delivery delays because "one_time" forces the
3168 parent to be marked "delivered", so its unseen clone is never tried
3169 again. For this reason, Exim now forbids the simultaneous setting of
3170 these two options.
3171
3172PH/04 Change 4.11/85 fixed an obscure bug concerned with addresses that are
3173 redirected to themselves ("homonym" addresses). Read the long ChangeLog
3174 entry if you want to know the details. The fix, however, neglected to
3175 consider the case when local delivery batching is involved. The test for
3176 "previously delivered" was not happening when checking to see if an
3177 address could be batched with a previous (undelivered) one; under
3178 certain circumstances this could lead to multiple deliveries to the same
c2c19e9d 3179 address.

PH
3180
3181PH/05 Renamed the macro SOCKLEN_T as EXIM_SOCKLEN_T because AIX uses SOCKLEN_T
3182 in its include files, and this causes problems building Exim.
3183
3184PH/06 A number of "verify =" ACL conditions have no options (e.g. verify =
3185 header_syntax) but Exim was just ignoring anything given after a slash.
3186 In particular, this caused confusion with an attempt to use "verify =
3187 reverse_host_lookup/defer_ok". An error is now given when options are
3188 supplied for verify items that do not have them. (Maybe reverse_host_
3189 lookup should have a defer_ok option, but that's a different point.)
3190
3191PH/07 Increase the size of the buffer for incoming SMTP commands from 512 (as
3192 defined by RFC 821) to 2048, because there were problems with some AUTH
3193 commands, and RFC 1869 says the size should be increased for extended
3194 SMTP commands that take arguments.
3195
3196PH/08 Added ${dlfunc dynamically loaded function for expansion (code from Tony
3197 Finch).
3198
3199PH/09 Previously, an attempt to use ${perl when it wasn't compiled gave an
3200 "unknown" error; now it says that the functionality isn't in the binary.

3202PH/10 Added a nasty fudge to try to recognize and flatten LDAP passwords in
3203 an address' error message when a string expansion fails (syntax or
f331f3b6
PH
3204 whatever). Otherwise the password may appear in the log. Following change
3205 PH/42 below, there is no longer a chance of it appearing in a bounce
3206 message.

PH
3213PH/13 If "headers_add" in a transport didn't end in a newline, Exim printed
3214 the result incorrectly in the debug output. (It correctly added a newline
3215 to what was transported.)

3219PH/14 Modified the default configuration to add an acl_smtp_data ACL, with
3220 commented out examples of how to interface to a virus scanner and to

3222 spamd_address settings.

PH
3224PH/15 Further to TK/02 and TK/03 above, tidied up the tables of what conditions
3225 and controls are allowed in which ACLs. There were a couple of minor
3226 errors. Some of the entries in the conditions table (which is a table of
3227 where they are NOT allowed) were getting very unwieldy; rewrote them as a
3228 negation of where the condition IS allowed.

PH
3232PH/17 The API for radiusclient changed at release 0.4.0. Unfortunately, the
3233 header file does not have a version number, so I've had to invent a new
3234 value for RADIUS_LIB_TYPE, namely "RADIUSCLIENTNEW" to request the new
3235 API. The code is untested by me (my Linux distribution still has 0.3.2 of
3236 radiusclient), but it was contributed by a Radius user.

3238PH/18 Installed Lars Mainka's patch for the support of CRL collections in
3239 files or directories, for OpenSSL.
3240
901f42cb
PH
3241PH/19 When an Exim process that is running as root has to create an Exim log
3242 file, it does so in a subprocess that runs as exim:exim so as to get the
3243 ownership right at creation (otherwise, other Exim processes might see
3244 the file with the wrong ownership). There was no test for failure of this
3245 fork() call, which would lead to the process getting stuck as it waited
3246 for a non-existent subprocess. Forks do occasionally fail when resources
3247 run out. I reviewed all the other calls to fork(); they all seem to check
3248 for failure.

PH
3250PH/20 When checking for unexpected SMTP input at connect time (before writing
3251 the banner), Exim was not dealing correctly with a non-positive return
3252 from the read() function. If the client had disconnected by this time,
3253 the result was a log entry for a synchronization error with an empty
3254 string after "input=" when read() returned zero. If read() returned -1
3255 (an event I could not check), uninitialized data bytes were printed.
3256 There were reports of junk text (parts of files, etc) appearing after
3257 "input=".

3264PH/23 The cyrus_sasl authenticator was expanding server_hostname, but then
3265 forgetting to use the resulting value; it was using the unexpanded value.
3266
c5ddb310
PH
3267PH/24 The cyrus_sasl authenticator was advertising mechanisms for which it
3268 hadn't been configured. The fix is from Juergen Kreileder, who
3269 understands it better than I do:
3270
3271 "Here's what I see happening with three configured cyrus_sasl
3272 authenticators configured (plain, login, cram-md5):
3273
3274 On startup auth_cyrus_sasl_init() gets called for each of these.
3275 This means three calls to sasl_listmech() without a specified mech_list.
3276 => SASL tests which mechs of all available mechs actually work
3277 => three warnings about OTP not working
3278 => the returned list contains: plain, login, cram-md5, digest-md5, ...
3279
3280 With the patch, sasl_listmech() also gets called three times. But now
3281 SASL's mech_list option is set to the server_mech specified in the the
3282 authenticator. Or in other words, the answer from sasl_listmech()
3283 gets limited to just the mech you're testing for (which is different
3284 for each call.)
3285 => the return list contains just 'plain' or 'login', 'cram-md5' or
3286 nothing depending on the value of ob->server_mech.
3287
3288 I've just tested the patch: Authentication still works fine,
3289 unavailable mechs specified in the exim configuration are still
3290 caught, and the auth.log warnings about OTP are gone."

3296PH/26 Change scripts/os-type so that when "uname -s" returns just "GNU", the

PH
3300PH/27 $acl_verify_message is now set immediately after the failure of a
3301 verification in an ACL, and so is available in subsequent modifiers. In
3302 particular, the message can be preserved by coding like this:
3303
3304 warn !verify = sender
3305 set acl_m0 = $acl_verify_message
3306
3307 Previously, $acl_verify_message was set only while expanding "message"
3308 and "log_message" when a very denied access.

PH
3321PH/30 In these circumstances:
3322 . Two addresses routed to the same list of hosts;
3323 . First host does not offer TLS;
3324 . First host accepts first address;
3325 . First host gives temporary error to second address;
3326 . Second host offers TLS and a TLS session is established;
3327 . Second host accepts second address.
3328 Exim incorrectly logged both deliveries with the TLS parameters (cipher
3329 and peerdn, if requested) that were in fact used only for the second
3330 address.

PH
3332PH/31 When doing a callout as part of verifying an address, Exim was not paying
3333 attention to any local part prefix or suffix that was matched by the
3334 router that accepted the address. It now behaves in the same way as it
3335 does for delivery: the affixes are removed from the local part unless
3336 rcpt_include_affixes is set on the transport.

PH
3344PH/34 Change 4.50/80 broke Exim in that it could no longer handle cases where
3345 the uid or gid is negative. A case of a negative gid caused this to be

PH
3348PH/35 ACL_WHERE_MIME is now declared unconditionally, to avoid too much code
3349 clutter, but the tables that are indexed by ACL_WHERE_xxx values had been

3352PH/36 The change PH/12 above was broken. Fixed it.
3353
d7174846
PH
3354PH/37 Exim used to check for duplicate addresses in the middle of routing, on
3355 the grounds that routing the same address twice would always produce the
3356 same answer. This might have been true once, but it is certainly no
3357 longer true now. Routing a child address may depend on the previous
3358 routing that produced that child. Some complicated redirection strategies
3359 went wrong when messages had multiple recipients, and made Exim's
3360 behaviour dependent on the order in which the addresses were given.
3361
3362 I have moved the duplicate checking until after the routing is complete.
3363 Exim scans the addresses that are assigned to local and remote
3364 transports, and removes any duplicates. This means that more work will be
3365 done, as duplicates will always all be routed, but duplicates are
3366 presumably rare, so I don't expect this is of any significance.
3367
3368 For deliveries to pipes, files, and autoreplies, the duplicate checking
3369 still happens during the routing process, since they are not going to be
3370 routed further.
