7JH/01 Bug 1664: Disable OCSP for GnuTLS library versions at/before 3.3.16
8 and 3.4.4 - once the server is enabled to respond to an OCSP request
9 it does even when not requested, resulting in a stapling non-aware
10 client dropping the TLS connection.

12TF/01 Code cleanup: Overhaul the debug_selector and log_selector machinery to
13 support variable-length bit vectors. No functional change.

TF
15TF/02 Improve the consistency of logging incoming and outgoing interfaces.
16 The I= interface field on outgoing lines is now after the H= remote
17 host field, same as incoming lines. There is a separate
18 outgoing_interface log selector which allows you to disable the
19 outgoing I= field.

JH
21JH/02 Bug 728: Close logfiles after a daemon-process "exceptional" log write.
22 If not running log_selector +smtp_connection the mainlog would be held
23 open indefinitely after a "too many connections" event, including to a
24 deleted file after a log rotate. Leave the per net connection logging
25 leaving it open for efficiency as that will be quickly detected by the
26 check on the next write.

28HS/01 Bug 1671: Fix post transport crash.
29 Processing the wait-<transport> messages could crash the delivery
30 process if the message IDs didn't exist for some reason. When
31 using 'split_spool_directory=yes' the construction of the spool
32 file name failed already, exposing the same netto behaviour.

JH
41JH/05 Downgrade message for a TLS-certificate-based authentication fail from
42 log line to debug. Even when configured with a tls authenticator many
43 client connections are expected to not authenticate in this way, so
44 an authenticate fail is not an error.

JH
52JH/07 Bug 1678: Always record an interface option value, if set, as part of a

55 distinct.

JH
81JH/18 Bug 1709: When built with TLS support, the tls_advertise_hosts option now
82 defaults to "*" (all hosts). The variable is now available when not built
83 with TLS, default unset, mainly to enable keeping the testuite sane.
84 If a server certificate is not supplied (via tls_certificate) an error is
85 logged, and clients will find TLS connections fail on startup. Presumably
86 they will retry in-clear.
87 Packagers of Exim are strongly encouraged to create a server certificate
88 at installation time.

90HS/03 Add -bP config_file as a synonym for -bP configure_file, for consistency

JB
93JH/19 Two additional event types: msg:rcpt:defer and msg:rcpt:host:defer. Both
94 in transport context, after the attempt, and per-recipient. The latter type
95 is per host attempted. The event data is the error message, and the errno
96 information encodes the lookup type (A vs. MX) used for the (first) host,
97 and the trailing two digits of the smtp 4xx reponse.

99GF/01 Bug 1715: Fix for race condition in exicyclog, where exim could attempt
100 to write to mainlog (or rejectlog, paniclog) in the window between file
101 creation and permissions/ownership being changed. Particularly affects
102 installations where exicyclog is run as root, rather than exim user;
103 result is that the running daemon panics and dies.

JH
143JH/34 Bug 1192: replace the embedded copy of PolarSSL RSA routines in the DKIM
144 support, by using OpenSSL or GnuTLS library ones. This means DKIM is
07c73177
JH
145 only supported when built with TLS support. The PolarSSL SHA routines

1bc460a6
JH
159JH/38 Fix cutthrough bug with body lines having a single dot. The dot was
160 incorrectly not doubled on cutthrough transmission, hence seen as a
161 body-termination at the receiving system - resulting in truncated mails.
62ac2eb7 162 Commonly the sender saw a TCP-level error, and retransmitted the message
1bc460a6
JH
163 via the normal store-and-forward channel. This could result in duplicates
164 received - but deduplicating mailstores were liable to retain only the
165 initial truncated version.

324Exim version 4.85
325-----------------
326TL/01 When running the test suite, the README says that variables such as
327 no_msglog_check are global and can be placed anywhere in a specific
328 test's script, however it was observed that placement needed to be near
329 the beginning for it to behave that way. Changed the runtest perl
330 script to read through the entire script once to detect and set these
331 variables, reset to the beginning of the script, and then run through
332 the script parsing/test process like normal.

359JH/05 Fix results-pipe from transport process. Several recipients, combined
360 with certificate use, exposed issues where response data items split
361 over buffer boundaries were not parsed properly. This eventually
362 resulted in duplicates being sent. This issue only became common enough

689TF/01 Fix ultimate retry timeouts for intermittently deliverable recipients.
690
691 When a queue runner is handling a message, Exim first routes the
692 recipient addresses, during which it prunes them based on the retry
693 hints database. After that it attempts to deliver the message to
694 any remaining recipients. It then updates the hints database using
695 the retry rules.
696
697 So if a recipient address works intermittently, it can get repeatedly
698 deferred at routing time. The retry hints record remains fresh so the
699 address never reaches the final cutoff time.
700
701 This is a fairly common occurrence when a user is bumping up against
702 their storage quota. Exim had some logic in its local delivery code
703 to deal with this. However it did not apply to per-recipient defers
704 in remote deliveries, e.g. over LMTP to a separate IMAP message store.
705
1ddeb334
TF
706 This change adds a proper retry rule check during routing so that the
707 final cutoff time is checked against the message's age. We only do
708 this check if there is an address retry record and there is not a
709 domain retry record; this implies that previous attempts to handle
710 the address had the retry_use_local_parts option turned on. We use
711 this as an approximation for the destination being like a local
712 delivery, as in LMTP.
67bd1ab3
TF
713
714 I suspect this new check makes the old local delivery cutoff check
715 redundant, but I have not verified this so I left the code in place.

755 the body content is received and before the acl_smtp_data ACL.
756 The client is controlled by bolth of: a hosts_try_prdr option
757 on the smtp transport, and the server advertisement.

1037TF/03 Make the exiwhat support code safe for signals. Previously Exim might
1038 lock up or crash if it happened to be inside a call to libc when it
1039 got a SIGUSR1 from exiwhat.
1040
1041 The SIGUSR1 handler appends the current process status to the process
1042 log which is later printed by exiwhat. It used to use the general
1043 purpose logging code to do this, but several functions it calls are
1044 not safe for signals.
1045
1046 The new output code in the SIGUSR1 handler is specific to the process
1047 log, and simple enough that it's easy to inspect for signal safety.
1048 Removing some special cases also simplifies the general logging code.
1049 Removing the spurious timestamps from the process log simplifies
1050 exiwhat.

TF
1052TF/04 Improved ratelimit ACL condition.
1053
1054 The /noupdate option has been deprecated in favour of /readonly which
1055 has clearer semantics. The /leaky, /strict, and /readonly update modes
1056 are mutually exclusive. The update mode is no longer included in the
1057 database key; it just determines when the database is updated. (This
1058 means that when you upgrde Exim will forget old rate measurements.)
1059
1060 Exim now checks that the per_* options are used with an update mode that
1061 makes sense for the current ACL. For example, when Exim is processing a
1062 message (e.g. acl_smtp_rcpt or acl_smtp_data, etc.) you can specify
1063 per_mail/leaky or per_mail/strict; otherwise (e.g. in acl_smtp_helo) you
1064 must specify per_mail/readonly. If you omit the update mode it defaults to
1065 /leaky where that makes sense (as before) or /readonly where required.
1066
1067 The /noupdate option is now undocumented but still supported for
1068 backwards compatibility. It is equivalent to /readonly except that in
1069 ACLs where /readonly is required you may specify /leaky/noupdate or
1070 /strict/noupdate which are treated the same as /readonly.
1071
1072 A useful new feature is the /count= option. This is a generalization
1073 of the per_byte option, so that you can measure the throughput of other
1074 aggregate values. For example, the per_byte option is now equivalent
1075 to per_mail/count=${if >{0}{$message_size} {0} {$message_size} }.
1076
1077 The per_rcpt option has been generalized using the /count= mechanism
1078 (though it's more complicated than the per_byte equivalence). When it is
1079 used in acl_smtp_rcpt, the per_rcpt option adds recipients to the
1080 measured rate one at a time; if it is used later (e.g. in acl_smtp_data)
1081 or in a non-SMTP ACL it adds all the recipients in one go. (The latter
1082 /count=$recipients_count behaviour used to work only in non-SMTP ACLs.)
1083 Note that using per_rcpt with a non-readonly update mode in more than
1084 one ACL will cause the recipients to be double-counted. (The per_mail
1085 and per_byte options don't have this problem.)
1086
1087 The handling of very low rates has changed slightly. If the computed rate
1088 is less than the event's count (usually one) then this event is the first
1089 after a long gap. In this case the rate is set to the same as this event's
1090 count, so that the first message of a spam run is counted properly.
1091
1092 The major new feature is a mechanism for counting the rate of unique
1093 events. The new per_addr option counts the number of different
1094 recipients that someone has sent messages to in the last time period. It
1095 behaves like per_rcpt if all the recipient addresses are different, but
1096 duplicate recipient addresses do not increase the measured rate. Like
1097 the /count= option this is a general mechanism, so the per_addr option
1098 is equivalent to per_rcpt/unique=$local_part@$domain. You can, for
1099 example, measure the rate that a client uses different sender addresses
1100 with the options per_mail/unique=$sender_address. There are further
1101 details in the main documentation.

1651 Note to Michael Haardt: I had to rename some vars in sieve.c. They
1652 were called 'true' and it seems that C99 defines that as a reserved

1654 not include C99-style headers which use bools without triggering

1670Exim version 4.68
1671-----------------
1672
1673PH/01 Another patch from the Sieve maintainer.
1674
6a3bceb1
PH
1675PH/02 When an IPv6 address is converted to a string for single-key lookup
1676 in an address list (e.g. for an item such as "net24-dbm;/net/works"),
1677 dots are used instead of colons so that keys in lsearch files need not
1678 contain colons. This was done some time before quoting was made available
1679 in lsearch files. However, iplsearch files do require colons in IPv6 keys
1680 (notated using the quote facility) so as to distinguish them from IPv4
1681 keys. This meant that lookups for IP addresses in host lists did not work
1682 for iplsearch lookups.
1683
1684 This has been fixed by arranging for IPv6 addresses to be expressed with
1685 colons if the lookup type is iplsearch. This is not incompatible, because
1686 previously such lookups could never work.
1687
1688 The situation is now rather anomolous, since one *can* have colons in
1689 ordinary lsearch keys. However, making the change in all cases is
1690 incompatible and would probably break a number of configurations.

MH
1695MH/01 The "spam" ACL condition code contained a sscanf() call with a %s
1696 conversion specification without a maximum field width, thereby enabling
1697 a rogue spamd server to cause a buffer overflow. While nobody in their
1698 right mind would setup Exim to query an untrusted spamd server, an
1699 attacker that gains access to a server running spamd could potentially
1700 exploit this vulnerability to run arbitrary code as the Exim user.

MH
1705MH/02 The dsearch lookup now uses lstat(2) instead of stat(2) to look for
1706 a directory entry by the name of the lookup key. Previously, if a
1707 symlink pointed to a non-existing file or a file in a directory that
1708 Exim lacked permissions to read, a lookup for a key matching that
1709 symlink would fail. Now it is enough that a matching directory entry
1710 exists, symlink or not. (Bugzilla 503.)

1787 if a client was not listed at all, or was listed with a value other than
1788 127.0.0.2, in the X list, but was listed with 127.0.0.2 in the Y list,

PH
1893PH/29 SMTP synchronization checks are implemented when a command is read -
1894 there is a check that no more input is waiting when there shouldn't be
1895 any. However, for some commands, a delay in an ACL can mean that it is
1896 some time before the response is written. In this time, more input might
1897 arrive, invalidly. So now there are extra checks after an ACL has run for
1898 HELO/EHLO and after the predata ACL, and likewise for MAIL and RCPT when
1899 pipelining has not been advertised.

1911PH/33 Compile failed with OpenSSL 0.9.8e. This was due to a coding error in

1914 no error. In previous releases of OpenSSL, SSL_CTX_set_info_callback()
1915 was a macro that became an assignment, so it seemed to work. This has

1917 error. Exim's code has been fixed.

1945PH/40 When Exim receives a message, it writes the login name, uid, and gid of
1946 whoever called Exim into the -H file. In the case of the daemon it was
1947 behaving confusingly. When first started, it used values for whoever
1948 started the daemon, but after a SIGHUP it used the Exim user (because it
1949 calls itself on a restart). I have changed the code so that it now always
1950 uses the Exim user.

1952PH/41 (Following a suggestion from Tony Finch) If all the RCPT commands in a
1953 message are rejected with the same error (e.g. no authentication or bad
1954 sender address), and a DATA command is nevertheless sent (as can happen
1955 with PIPELINING or a stupid MUA), the error message that was given to the
1956 RCPT commands is included in the rejection of the DATA command. This is
1957 intended to be helpful for MUAs that show only the final error to their
1958 users.

58eb016e 1972PH/44 I found a way to check for a TCP/IP connection going away before sending

PH
1973 the response to the final '.' that terminates a message, but only in the
1974 case where the client has not sent further data following the '.'
1975 (unfortunately, this is allowed). However, in many cases there won't be
1976 any further data because there won't be any more messages to send. A call
1977 to select() can be used: if it shows that the input is "ready", there is
1978 either input waiting, or the socket has been closed. An attempt to read
1979 the next input character can distinguish the two cases. Previously, Exim
58eb016e 1980 would have sent an OK response which the client would never have see.

1991PH/01 Two more bugs that were introduced by 4.64/PH/07, in addition to the one
1992 fixed by 4.65/MH/01 (is this a record?) are fixed:
1993
1994 (i) An empty string was always treated as zero by the numeric comparison
1995 operators. This behaviour has been restored.
1996
1997 (ii) It is documented that the numeric comparison operators always treat
1998 their arguments as decimal numbers. This was broken in that numbers
1999 starting with 0 were being interpreted as octal.
2000
2001 While fixing these problems I realized that there was another issue that
2002 hadn't been noticed. Values of message_size_limit (both the global option
2003 and the transport option) were treated as octal if they started with 0.
2004 The documentation was vague. These values are now always treated as
2005 decimal, and I will make that clear in the documentation.

2019PH/01 If a system filter or a router generates more than SHRT_MAX (32767)

2021 is held in a short int, deliveries were likely to be lost. As such a
2022 large number of recipients for a single message is ridiculous
2023 (performance will be very, very poor), I have chosen to impose a limit
2024 rather than extend the field.

2030TK/01 Bugzilla #401. Fix DK spooling code so that it can overwrite a
2031 leftover -K file (the existence of which was triggered by #402).

2040TK/03 Introduced HAVE_LINUX_SENDFILE to os.h-Linux. Currently only used

PH
2049PH/01 If a server that rejects MAIL FROM:<> was the target of a sender
2050 callout verification, Exim cached a "reject" for the entire domain. This
2051 is correct for most verifications, but it is not correct for a recipient
2052 verification with use_sender or use_postmaster set, because in that case
2053 the callout does not use MAIL FROM:<>. Exim now distinguishes the special
2054 case of MAIL FROM:<> rejection from other early rejections (e.g.
2055 rejection of HELO). When verifying a recipient using a non-null MAIL
2056 address, the cache is ignored if it shows MAIL FROM:<> rejection.
2057 Whatever the result of the callout, the value of the domain cache is
2058 left unchanged (for any other kind of callout, getting as far as trying
2059 RCPT means that the domain itself is ok).

2093PH/11 Callouts were setting the name used for EHLO/HELO from $smtp_active_

2095 probably the interface on which it is arriving) and not to the outgoing
2096 callout (which could be using a different interface). This has been
2097 changed to use the value of the helo_data option from the smtp transport
2098 instead - this is what is used when a message is actually being sent. If
2099 there is no remote transport (possible with a router that sets up host
2100 addresses), $smtp_active_hostname is used.

14aa5a05
PH
2104 (a) The code assumed that strncpy() returns a negative number on buffer
2105 overflow, which isn't the case. Replaced with Exim's string_format()
2106 function.
2107 (b) There were several signed/unsigned issues. I just did the minimum
2108 hacking in of casts. There is scope for a larger refactoring.
2109 (c) The code used strcasecmp() which is not a standard C function.
2110 Replaced with Exim's strcmpic() function.
2111 (d) The code set only $1; it now sets $auth1 as well.
2112 (e) A simple test gave the error "authentication client didn't specify
2113 service in request". It would seem that Dovecot has changed its
2114 interface. Fortunately there's a specification; I followed it and
2115 changed what the client sends and it appears to be working now.

2121 address A is aliased to B and C, where B exists and C does not. Without
2122 -v the output is "A verified" because verification stops after a
2123 successful redirection if more than one address is generated. However,
2124 with -v the child addresses are also verified. Exim was outputting "A
2125 failed to verify" and then showing the successful verification for C,
2126 with its parentage. It now outputs "B failed to verify", showing B's
2127 parentage before showing the successful verification of C.

2132
322050c2
PH
2133PH/16 It seems that the options setting for the resolver (RES_DEFNAMES and
2134 RES_DNSRCH) can affect the behaviour of gethostbyname() and friends when
2135 they consult the DNS. I had assumed they would set it the way they
2136 wanted; and indeed my experiments on Linux seem to show that in some
2137 cases they do (I could influence IPv6 lookups but not IPv4 lookups).
2138 To be on the safe side, however, I have now made the interface to
2139 host_find_byname() similar to host_find_bydns(), with an argument
2140 containing the DNS resolver options. The host_find_byname() function now
2141 sets these options at its start, just as host_find_bydns() does. The smtp
2142 transport options dns_qualify_single and dns_search_parents are passed to
2143 host_find_byname() when gethostbyname=TRUE in this transport. Other uses
2144 of host_find_byname() use the default settings of RES_DEFNAMES
2145 (qualify_single) but not RES_DNSRCH (search_parents).

2147PH/17 Applied (a modified version of) Nico Erfurth's patch to make
2148 spool_read_header() do less string testing, by means of a preliminary
2149 switch on the second character of optional "-foo" lines. (This is
2150 overdue, caused by the large number of possibilities that now exist.
2151 Originally there were few.) While I was there, I also converted the
2152 str(n)cmp tests so they don't re-test the leading "-" and the first
2153 character, in the hope this might squeeze out yet more improvement.

2155PH/18 Two problems with "group" syntax in header lines when verifying: (1) The
2156 flag allowing group syntax was set by the header_syntax check but not
2157 turned off, possible causing trouble later; (2) The flag was not being
2158 set at all for the header_verify test, causing "group"-style headers to
2159 be rejected. I have now set it in this case, and also caused header_
2160 verify to ignore an empty address taken from a group. While doing this, I
2161 came across some other cases where the code for allowing group syntax
2162 while scanning a header line wasn't quite right (mostly, not resetting
2163 the flag correctly in the right place). These bugs could have caused
2164 trouble for malformed header lines. I hope it is now all correct.

PH
2166PH/19 The functions {pwcheck,saslauthd}_verify_password() are always called
2167 with the "reply" argument non-NULL. The code, however (which originally
2168 came from elsewhere) had *some* tests for NULL when it wrote to *reply,
2169 but it didn't always do it. This confused somebody who was copying the
2170 code for some other use. I have removed all the tests.

PH
2172PH/20 It was discovered that the GnuTLS code had support for RSA_EXPORT, a
2173 feature that was used to support insecure browsers during the U.S. crypto
2174 embargo. It requires special client support, and Exim is probably the
2175 only MTA that supported it -- and would never use it because real RSA is
2176 always available. This code has been removed, because it had the bad
2177 effect of slowing Exim down by computing (never used) parameters for the
2178 RSA_EXPORT functionality.

PH
2180PH/21 On the advice of Timo Sirainen, added a check to the dovecot
2181 authenticator to fail if there's a tab character in the incoming data
2182 (there should never be unless someone is messing about, as it's supposed
2183 to be base64-encoded). Also added, on Timo's advice, the "secured" option
2184 if the connection is using TLS or if the remote IP is the same as the
2185 local IP, and the "valid-client-cert option" if a client certificate has
2186 been verified.

2217
2218PH/30 Exim was sometimes attempting to deliver messages that had suffered
2219 address errors (4xx response to RCPT) over the same connection as other
2220 messages routed to the same hosts. Such deliveries are always "forced",
2221 so retry times are not inspected. This resulted in far too many retries
2222 for the affected addresses. The effect occurred only when there were more
2223 hosts than the hosts_max_try setting in the smtp transport when it had
2224 the 4xx errors. Those hosts that it had tried were not added to the list
2225 of hosts for which the message was waiting, so if all were tried, there
2226 was no problem. Two fixes have been applied:
2227
2228 (i) If there are any address or message errors in an SMTP delivery, none
2229 of the hosts (tried or untried) are now added to the list of hosts
2230 for which the message is waiting, so the message should not be a
2231 candidate for sending over the same connection that was used for a
2232 successful delivery of some other message. This seems entirely
2233 reasonable: after all the message is NOT "waiting for some host".
2234 This is so "obvious" that I'm not sure why it wasn't done
2235 previously. Hope I haven't missed anything, but it can't do any
2236 harm, as the worst effect is to miss an optimization.
2237
2238 (ii) If, despite (i), such a delivery is accidentally attempted, the
2239 routing retry time is respected, so at least it doesn't keep
2240 hammering the server.

PH
2255PH/35 The error "getsockname() failed: connection reset by peer" was being
2256 written to the panic log as well as the main log, but it isn't really
2257 panic-worthy as it just means the connection died rather early on. I have
2258 removed the panic log writing for the ECONNRESET error when getsockname()
2259 fails.
2260
48c7f9e2
PH
2261PH/36 After a 4xx response to a RCPT error, that address was delayed (in queue
2262 runs only) independently of the message's sender address. This meant
2263 that, if the 4xx error was in fact related to the sender, a different
2264 message to the same recipient with a different sender could confuse
2265 things. In particualar, this can happen when sending to a greylisting
2266 server, but other circumstances could also provoke similar problems.
2267 I have changed the default so that the retry time for these errors is now
2268 based a combination of the sender and recipient addresses. This change
2269 can be overridden by setting address_retry_include_sender=false in the
2270 smtp transport.

2538PH/02 When tcp-wrappers is called from Exim, it returns only "deny" or "allow".

2540 Unfortunately, if there is a major crisis, such as a disk failure,
2541 tcp-wrappers gives "deny", whereas what one would like would be some
2542 kind of temporary error. A kludge has been added to help with this.
2543 Before calling hosts_ctl(), errno is set zero. If the result is "deny", a
2544 554 error is used if errno is still zero or contains ENOENT (which occurs
2545 if either of the /etc/hosts.{allow,deny} files is missing). Otherwise, a
2546 451 error is used.

2582PH/01 The code for finding all the local interface addresses on a FreeBSD
2583 system running IPv6 was broken. This may well have applied to all BSD
2584 systems, as well as to others that have similar system calls. The broken
2585 code found IPv4 interfaces correctly, but gave incorrect values for the
2586 IPv6 interfaces. In particular, ::1 was not found. The effect in Exim was
2587 that it would not match correctly against @[] and not recognize the IPv6
2588 addresses as local.

2631 autoreply, Exim could try to deliver to a non-existent relative file

2651 non-existent - all you got was a failure to exec. I have made two
2652 changes:
2653
2654 (a) Failures to set uid/gid, the current directory, or a process leader
2655 in a subprocess such as that created by queryprogram now generate
2656 suitable debugging ouput when -d is set.
2657

2660 the subprocess without attempting to change uid/gid.

2666 additional section of a DNS packet that returns MX or SRV records.
2667 Instead, it always explicitly searches for A/AAAA records. This avoids
2668 major problems that occur when a DNS server includes only records of one
2669 type (A or AAAA) in an MX/SRV packet. A byproduct of this change has
2670 fixed another bug: if SRV records were looked up and the corresponding
2671 address records were *not* found in the additional section, the port
2672 values from the SRV records were lost.

2674PH/17 If a delivery to a pipe, file, or autoreply was deferred, Exim was not

2681
727071f8
PH
2682PH/19 When calculating a retry time, Exim used to measure the "time since
2683 failure" by looking at the "first failed" field in the retry record. Now
2684 it does not use this if it is later than than the arrival time of the
2685 message. Instead it uses the arrival time. This makes for better
2686 behaviour in cases where some deliveries succeed, thus re-setting the
2687 "first failed" field. An example is a quota failure for a huge message
2688 when small messages continue to be delivered. Without this change, the
2689 "time since failure" will always be short, possible causing more frequent
2690 delivery attempts for the huge message than are intended.

PH
2787PH/42 The content-scanning code uses fopen() to create files in which to put
2788 message data. Previously it was not paying any attention to the mode of
2789 the files. Exim runs with umask(0) because the rest of the code creates
2790 files with open(), and sets the required mode explicitly. Thus, these
2791 files were ending up world-writeable. This was not a big issue, because,
2792 being within the spool directory, they were not world-accessible. I have
2793 created a function called modefopen, which takes an additional mode
2794 argument. It sets umask(777), creates the file, chmods it to the required
2795 mode, then resets the umask. All the relevant calls to fopen() in the
2796 content scanning code have been changed to use this function.

2808 The decoded challenge strings are now placed in $auth1, $auth2, etc. as

2833
2834 (i) Exim was not creating retry information for temporary errors given
2835 for individual recipients after the DATA command when the smtp transport
2836 was used in LMTP mode. This meant that they could be retried too
2837 frequently, and not timed out correctly.
2838
2839 (ii) Exim was setting the flag that allows error details to be returned
2840 for LMTP errors on RCPT commands, but not for LMTP errors for individual
2841 recipients that were returned after the DATA command.
2842
2843PH/53 This is related to PH/52, but is more general: for any failing address,
2844 when detailed error information was permitted to be returned to the
2845 sender, but the error was temporary, then after the final timeout, only
2846 "retry timeout exceeded" was returned. Now it returns the full error as

2917PH/71 Fixed an obscure and subtle bug (thanks Alexander & Matthias). The
2918 function verify_get_ident() calls ip_connect() to connect a socket, but
2919 if the "connect()" function timed out, ip_connect() used to close the
2920 socket. However, verify_get_ident() also closes the socket later, and in
2921 between Exim writes to the log, which may get opened at this point. When
2922 the socket was closed in ip_connect(), the log could get the same file
2923 descriptor number as the socket. This naturally causes chaos. The fix is
2924 not to close the socket in ip_connect(); the socket should be closed by
2925 the function that creates it. There was only one place in the code where
2926 this was missing, in the iplookup router, which I don't think anybody now
2927 uses, but I've fixed it anyway.

2954 (3) Reset the variables that are obtained from the first argument of
2955 ${prvscheck and used in the second argument before leaving the code,
2956 because their memory is reclaimed, so using them afterwards may do
2957 silly things.

2984 command, (for example, EHLO [1.2.3.4]) and the client's IP address was
2985 not being looked up in the rDNS to get a host name, Exim was showing the
2986 IP address twice in Received: lines, even though the IP addresses were
2987 identical. For example:
2988
2989 Received: from [1.2.3.4] (helo=[1.2.3.4])
2990
2991 However, if the real host name was known, it was omitting the HELO data

2993 doesn't show the same IP address twice.

3085 addresses acquired from the DNS when checking that the found name did
3086 have the original IP as one of its addresses. Since any found IPv6
3087 addresses are likely to be in abbreviated form, the comparison could
3088 fail. Luckily, there already exists a function for doing the comparison
3089 by converting both addresses to binary, so now that is used instead of
3090 the text comparison.

3137PH/03 When creating an mbox file for a virus/spam scan, use fseek() instead of
3138 fread() to skip over the body file's header line, because in Cygwin the
3139 header line is locked and is inaccessible.

3141PH/04 Added $message_exim_id, ultimately to replace $message_id (they will both
3142 co-exist for some time) to make it clear that it is the Exim ID that is
3143 referenced, not the Message-ID: header line.

3169PH/12 There was a missing call to search_tidyup() before the fork() in rda.c to
3170 run a filter in a subprocess. This could lead to confusion in subsequent
3171 lookups in the parent process. There should also be a search_tidyup() at
3172 the end of the subprocess.

PH
3174PH/13 Previously, if "verify = helo" was set in an ACL, the condition was true
3175 only if the host matched helo_try_verify_hosts, which caused the
3176 verification to occur when the EHLO/HELO command was issued. The ACL just
3177 tested the remembered result. Now, if a previous verification attempt has
3178 not happened, "verify = helo" does it there and then.

3197PH/20 If a delivery was routed to a non-standard port by means of an SRV

PH
3207PH/23 Applied a patch to fix problems with exim-4.52 while doing radius
3208 authentication with radiusclient 0.4.9:
3209
3210 - Error returned from rc_read_config was caught wrongly
3211 - Username/password not passed on to radius server due to wrong length.
3212
3213 The presumption is that some radiusclient API changes for 4.51/PH/17
3214 were not taken care of correctly. The code is still untested by me (my
3215 Linux distribution still has 0.3.2 of radiusclient), but it was
3216 contributed by a Radius user.

3227PH/25 Make $smtp_command_argument available after all SMTP commands. This means

PH
3231PH/26 Exim was recognizing IPv6 addresses of the form [IPv6:....] in EHLO
3232 commands, but it was not correctly comparing the address with the actual
3233 client host address. Thus, it would show the EHLO address in Received:
3234 header lines when this was not necessary.

3238PH/28 Exim tries to create and chdir to its spool directory when it starts;
3239 it should be ignoring failures (because with -C, for example, it has lost

3241 exists".

3259PH/34 There are settings for CHOWN_COMMAND and MV_COMMAND that can be used in
3260 Local/Makefile (with some defaults set). These are used in built scripts
3261 such as exicyclog, but they have never been used in the exim_install
3262 script (though there are many overriding facilities there). I have
3263 arranged that the exim_install script now takes note of these two
3264 settings.

3268PH/36 When a locally submitted message by a trusted user did not contain a
3269 From: header, and the sender address was obtained from -f or from an SMTP
3270 MAIL command, and the trusted user did not use -F to supply a sender
3271 name, $originator_name was incorrectly used when constructing a From:
3272 header. Furthermore, $originator_name was used for submission mode
3273 messages from external hosts without From: headers in a similar way,
3274 which is clearly wrong.
