3New Features in Exim
6This file contains descriptions of new features that have been added to Exim,
7but have not yet made it into the main manual (which is most conveniently
8updated when there is a relatively large batch of changes). The doc/ChangeLog
9file contains a listing of all changes, including bug fixes.
12Version 4.44
15 1. There is a new build-time option called CONFIGURE_GROUP which works like
16 CONFIGURE_OWNER. It specifies one additional group that is permitted for
17 the runtime configuration file when the group write permission is set.
19 2. The "control=submission" facility has a new option /retain_sender. This
20 has the effect of setting local_sender_retain true and local_from_check
21 false for the incoming message in which it is encountered.
23 3. $recipients is now available in the predata ACL (oversight).
25 4. The value of address_data from a sender verification is now available in
26 $sender_address_data in subsequent conditions in the ACL statement. Note:
27 this is just like $address_data. The value does not persist after the end
28 of the current ACL statement. If you want to preserve it, you can use one
29 of the ACL variables.
31 5. The redirect router has two new options: forbid_sieve_filter and
32 forbid_exim_filter. When filtering is enabled by allow_filter, these
33 options control which type(s) of filtering are permitted. By default, both
34 Exim and Sieve filters are allowed.
36 6. A new option for callouts makes it possible to set a different (usually
37 smaller) timeout for making the SMTP connection. The keyword is "connect".
38 For example:
40 verify = sender/callout=5s,connect=1s
42 If not specified, it defaults to the general timeout value.
44 7. The new variables $sender_verify_failure and $recipient_verify_failure
45 contain information about exactly what failed. In an ACL, after one of
46 these failures, the relevant variable contains one of the following words:
48 qualify the address was unqualified (no domain), and the message
49 was neither local nor came from an exempted host;
51 route routing failed;
53 mail routing succeeded, and a callout was attempted; rejection
54 occurred at or before the MAIL command (that is, on initial
55 connection, HELO, or MAIL);
57 recipient the RCPT command in a callout was rejected;
59 postmaster the postmaster check in a callout was rejected.
61 The main use of these variables is expected to be to distinguish between
62 rejections of MAIL and rejections of RCPT.

66Version 4.43
69 1. There is a new Boolean global option called mua_wrapper, defaulting false.
70 This causes Exim to run an a restricted mode, in order to provide a very
71 specific service.
73 Background: On a personal computer, it is a common requirement for all
74 email to be sent to a smarthost. There are plenty of MUAs that can be
75 configured to operate that way, for all the popular operating systems.
76 However, there are MUAs for Unix-like systems that cannot be so configured:
77 they submit messages using the command line interface of
78 /usr/sbin/sendmail. In addition, utility programs such as cron submit
79 messages this way.
81 Requirement: The requirement is for something that can provide the
82 /usr/sbin/sendmail interface and deliver messages to a smarthost, but not
83 provide any queueing or retrying facilities. Furthermore, the delivery to
84 the smarthost should be synchronous, so that if it fails, the sending MUA
85 is immediately informed. In other words, we want something that in effect
86 converts a command-line MUA into a TCP/SMTP MUA.
88 Solutions: There are a number of applications (for example, ssmtp) that do
89 this job. However, people have found them to be lacking in various ways.
90 For instance, some sites want to allow aliasing and forwarding before
91 sending to the smarthost.
93 Using Exim: Exim already had the necessary infrastructure for doing this
94 job. Just a few tweaks were needed to make it behave as required, though it
95 is somewhat of an overkill to use a fully-featured MTA for this purpose.
97 Setting mua_wrapper=true causes Exim to run in a special mode where it
98 assumes that it is being used to "wrap" a command-line MUA in the manner
99 just described.
101 If you set mua_wrapper=true, you also need to provide a compatible router
102 and transport configuration. Typically there will be just one router and
103 one transport, sending everything to a smarthost.
105 When run in MUA wrapping mode, the behaviour of Exim changes in the
106 following ways:
108 (a) A daemon cannot be run, nor will Exim accept incoming messages from
109 inetd. In other words, the only way to submit messages is via the
110 command line.
112 (b) Each message is synchonously delivered as soon as it is received (-odi
113 is assumed). All queueing options (queue_only, queue_smtp_domains,
114 control=queue, control=freeze in an ACL etc.) are quietly ignored. The
115 Exim reception process does not finish until the delivery attempt is
116 complete. If the delivery was successful, a zero return code is given.
118 (c) Address redirection is permitted, but the final routing for all
119 addresses must be to the same remote transport, and to the same list of
120 hosts. Furthermore, the return_address must be the same for all
121 recipients, as must any added or deleted header lines. In other words,
122 it must be possible to deliver the message in a single SMTP
123 transaction, however many recipients there are.
125 (d) If the conditions in (c) are not met, or if routing any address results
126 in a failure or defer status, or if Exim is unable to deliver all the
127 recipients successfully to one of the hosts immediately, delivery of
128 the entire message fails.
130 (e) Because no queueing is allowed, all failures are treated as permanent;
131 there is no distinction between 4xx and 5xx SMTP response codes from
132 the smarthost. Furthermore, because only a single yes/no response can
133 be given to the caller, it is not possible to deliver to some
134 recipients and not others. If there is an error (temporary or
135 permanent) for any recipient, all are failed.
137 (f) If more than one host is listed, Exim will try another host after a
138 connection failure or a timeout, in the normal way. However, if this
139 kind of failure happens for all the hosts, the delivery fails.
141 (g) When delivery fails, an error message is written to the standard error
142 stream (as well as to Exim's log), and Exim exits to the caller with a
143 return code value 1. The message is expunged from Exim's spool files.
144 No bounce messages are ever generated.
146 (h) No retry data is maintained, and any retry rules are ignored.
148 (i) A number of Exim options are overridden: deliver_drop_privilege is
149 forced true, max_rcpt in the smtp transport is forced to "unlimited",
150 remote_max_parallel is forced to one, and fallback hosts are ignored.
152 The overall effect is that Exim makes a single synchronous attempt to
153 deliver the message, failing if there is any kind of problem. Because no
154 local deliveries are done and no daemon can be run, Exim does not need root
155 privilege. It should be possible to run it setuid=exim instead of
156 setuid=root. See section 48.3 in the 4.40 manual for a general discussion
157 about the advantages and disadvantages of running without root privilege.
159 2. There have been problems with DNS servers when SRV records are looked up.
160 Some mis-behaving servers return a DNS error or timeout when a non-existent
161 SRV record is sought. Similar problems have in the past been reported for
162 MX records. The global dns_again_means_nonexist option can help with this
163 problem, but it is heavy-handed because it is a global option. There are
164 now two new options for the dnslookup router. They are called
165 srv_fail_domains and mx_fail_domains. In each case, the value is a domain
166 list. If an attempt to look up an SRV or MX record results in a DNS failure
167 or "try again" response, and the domain matches the relevant list, Exim
168 behaves as if the DNS had responded "no such record". In the case of an SRV
169 lookup, this means that the router proceeds to look for MX records; in the
170 case of an MX lookup, it proceeds to look for A or AAAA records, unless the
171 domain matches mx_domains.
173 3. The following functions are now available in the local_scan() API:
175 (a) void header_remove(int occurrence, uschar *name)
177 This function removes header lines. If "occurrence" is zero or negative,
178 all occurrences of the header are removed. If occurrence is greater
179 than zero, that particular instance of the header is removed. If no
180 header(s) can be found that match the specification, the function does
181 nothing.
183 (b) BOOL header_testname(header_line *hdr, uschar *name, int length,
184 BOOL notdel)
186 This function tests whether the given header has the given name. It
187 is not just a string comparison, because whitespace is permitted
188 between the name and the colon. If the "notdel" argument is TRUE, a
189 FALSE return is forced for all "deleted" headers; otherwise they are
190 not treated specially. For example:
192 if (header_testname(h, US"X-Spam", 6, TRUE)) ...
194 (c) void header_add_at_position(BOOL after, uschar *name, BOOL topnot,
195 int type, char *format, ...)
197 This function adds a new header line at a specified point in the header
198 chain. If "name" is NULL, the new header is added at the end of the
199 chain if "after" is TRUE, or at the start if "after" is FALSE. If
200 "name" is not NULL, the headers are searched for the first non-deleted
201 header that matches the name. If one is found, the new header is added
202 before it if "after" is FALSE. If "after" is true, the new header is
203 added after the found header and any adjacent subsequent ones with the
204 same name (even if marked "deleted"). If no matching non-deleted header
205 is found, the "topnot" option controls where the header is added. If it
206 is TRUE, addition is at the top; otherwise at the bottom. Thus, to add
207 a header after all the Received: headers, or at the top if there are no
208 Received: headers, you could use
210 header_add_at_position(TRUE, US"Received", TRUE, ' ', "X-xxx: ...");
212 Normally, there is always at least one non-deleted Received: header,
213 but there may not be if received_header_text expands to an empty
214 string.
216 (d) BOOL receive_remove_recipient(uschar *recipient)
218 This is a convenience function to remove a named recipient from the
219 list of recipients. It returns TRUE if a recipient was removed, and
220 FALSE if no matching recipient could be found. The argument must be a
221 complete email address.
223 4. When an ACL "warn" statement adds one or more header lines to a message,
224 they are added at the end of the existing header lines by default. It is
225 now possible to specify that any particular header line should be added
226 right at the start (before all the Received: lines) or immediately after
227 the first block of Received: lines in the message. This is done by
228 specifying :at_start: or :after_received: (or, for completeness, :at_end:)
229 before the text of the header line. (Header text cannot start with a colon,
230 as there has to be a header name first.) For example:
232 warn message = :after_received:X-My-Header: something or other...
234 If more than one header is supplied in a single warn statement, each one is
235 treated independently and can therefore be placed differently. If you add
236 more than one line at the start, or after the Received: block, they will
237 end up in reverse order.
239 Warning: This facility currently applies only to header lines that are
240 added in an ACL. It does NOT work for header lines that are added in a
241 system filter or in a router or transport.
243 5. There is now a new error code that can be used in retry rules. Its name is
244 "rcpt_4xx", and there are three forms. A literal "rcpt_4xx" matches any 4xx
245 error received for an outgoing SMTP RCPT command; alternatively, either the
246 first or both of the x's can be given as digits, for example: "rcpt_45x" or
247 "rcpt_436". If you want (say) to recognize 452 errors given to RCPT
248 commands by a particular host, and have only a one-hour retry for them, you
249 can set up a retry rule of this form:
251 rcpt_452 F,1h,10m
253 Naturally, this rule must come before any others that would match.
255 These new errors apply to both outgoing SMTP (the smtp transport) and
256 outgoing LMTP (either the lmtp transport, or the smtp transport in LMTP
257 mode). Note, however, that they apply only to responses to RCPT commands.
259 6. The "postmaster" option of the callout feature of address verification has
260 been extended to make it possible to use a non-empty MAIL FROM address when
261 checking a postmaster address. The new suboption is called "postmaster_
262 mailfrom", and you use it like this:
264 require verify = sender/callout=postmaster_mailfrom=abc@x.y.z
266 Providing this suboption causes the postmaster check to be done using the
267 given address. The original "postmaster" option is equivalent to
269 require verify = sender/callout=postmaster_mailfrom=
271 If both suboptions are present, the rightmost one overrides.
273 Important notes:
275 (1) If you use a non-empty sender address for postmaster checking, there is
276 the likelihood that the remote host will itself initiate a callout
277 check back to your host to check that address. As this is a "normal"
278 callout check, the sender will most probably be empty, thus avoiding
279 possible callout loops. However, to be on the safe side it would be
280 best to set up your own ACLs so that they do not do sender verification
281 checks when the recipient is the address you use for postmaster callout
282 checking.
284 (2) The caching arrangements for postmaster checking do NOT take account of
285 the sender address. It is assumed that either the empty address, or a
286 fixed non-empty address will be used. All that Exim remembers is that
287 the postmaster check for the domain succeeded or failed.
289 7. When verifying addresses in header lines using the verify=header_sender
290 option, Exim behaves by default as if the addresses are envelope sender
291 addresses from a message. Callout verification therefore tests to see
292 whether a bounce message could be delivered, by using an empty address in
293 the MAIL FROM command. However, it is arguable that these addresses might
294 never be used as envelope senders, and could therefore justifiably reject
295 bounce messages (empty senders). There is now an additional callout option
296 for verify=header_sender that allows you to specify what address to use in
297 the MAIL FROM command. You use it as in this example:
299 require verify = header_sender/callout=mailfrom=abcd@x.y.z
301 Important notes:
303 (1) As in the case of postmaster_mailfrom (see above), you should think
304 about possible loops.
306 (2) In this case, as in the case of recipient callouts with non-empty
307 senders (the use_sender option), caching is done on the basis of a
308 recipient/sender pair.
310 8. If you build Exim with USE_READLINE=yes in Local/Makefile, it will try to
311 load libreadline dynamically whenever the -be (test expansion) option is
312 used without command line arguments. If successful, it will then use
313 readline() for reading the test data. A line history is supported. By the
314 time Exim does this, it is running as the calling user, so this should not
315 cause any security problems. Security is the reason why this is NOT
316 supported for -bt or -bv, when Exim is running as root or exim,
317 respectively. Note that this option adds to the size of the Exim binary,
318 because the dynamic loading library is not otherwise included. On my
319 desktop it adds about 2.5K. You may need to add -ldl to EXTRA_LIBS when you
320 set USE_READLINE=yes.
322 9. Added ${str2b64:<string>} to the expansion operators. This operator
323 converts an arbitrary string into one that is base64 encoded.
32510. A new authenticator, called cyrus_sasl, has been added. This requires
326 the presence of the Cyrus SASL library; it authenticates by calling this
327 library, which supports a number of authentication mechanisms, including
328 PLAIN and LOGIN, but also several others that Exim does not support
329 directly. The code for this authenticator was provided by Matthew
330 Byng-Maddick of A L Digital Ltd ( Here follows
331 draft documentation:
335 The cyrus_sasl authenticator provides server support for the Cyrus library
336 Implementation of the RFC 2222 "Simple Authentication and Security Layer".
337 It provides a gatewaying mechanism directly to the Cyrus interface, so if
338 your Cyrus library can do, for example, CRAM-MD5, then so can the
339 cyrus_sasl authenticator. By default it uses the public name of the driver
340 to determine which mechanism to support.
342 Where access to some kind of secret file is required, for example in GSSAPI
343 or CRAM-MD5, it is worth noting that the authenticator runs as the exim
344 user, and that the Cyrus SASL library has no way of escalating privileges
345 by default. You may also find you need to set environment variables,
346 depending on the driver you are using.
348 xx.1 Using cyrus_sasl as a server
350 The cyrus_sasl authenticator has four private options. It puts the username
351 (on a successful authentication) into $1.
353 server_hostname Type: string* Default: $primary_hostname
355 This option selects the hostname that is used when communicating with
356 the library. It is up to the underlying SASL plug-in what it does with
357 this data.
359 server_mech Type: string Default: public_name
361 This option selects the authentication mechanism this driver should
362 use. It allows you to use a different underlying mechanism from the
363 advertised name. For example:
365 sasl:
366 driver = cyrus_sasl
367 public_name = X-ANYTHING
368 server_mech = CRAM-MD5
369 server_set_id = $1
371 server_realm Type: string Default: unset
373 This is the SASL realm that the server is claiming to be in.
375 server_service Type: string Default: "smtp"
377 This is the SASL service that the server claims to implement.
379 For straigthforward cases, you do not need to set any of the
380 authenticator's private options. All you need to do is to specify an
381 appropriate mechanism as the public name. Thus, if you have a SASL library
382 that supports CRAM-MD5 and PLAIN, you might have two authenticators as
383 follows:
385 sasl_cram_md5:
386 driver = cyrus_sasl
387 public_name = CRAM-MD5
388 server_set_id = $1
390 sasl_plain:
391 driver = cyrus_sasl
392 public_name = PLAIN
393 server_set_id = $1
39511. There is a new global option called tls_on_connect_ports. Its value must be
396 a list of port numbers; the most common use is expected to be
398 tls_on_connect_ports = 465
400 Setting this option has the same effect as -tls-on-connect on the command
401 line, but only for the specified ports. It applies to all connections, both
402 via the daemon and via inetd. You still need to specify all the ports for
403 the daemon (using daemon_smtp_ports or local_interfaces or the -X command
404 line option) because this option does not add an extra port -- rather, it
405 specifies different behaviour on a port that is defined elsewhere. The
406 -tls-on-connect command line option overrides tls_on_connect_ports, and
407 forces tls-on-connect for all ports.
40912. There is a new ACL that is run when a DATA command is received, before the
410 data itself is received. The ACL is defined by acl_smtp_predata. (Compare
411 acl_smtp_data, which is run after the data has been received.)
412 This new ACL allows a negative response to be given to the DATA command
413 itself. Header lines added by MAIL or RCPT ACLs are not visible at this
414 time, but any that are defined here are visible when the acl_smtp_data ACL
415 is run.
41713. The "control=submission" ACL modifier has an option "/domain=xxx" which
418 specifies the domain to be used when creating From: or Sender: lines using
419 the authenticated id as a local part. If the option is supplied with an
420 empty domain, that is, just "/domain=", Exim assumes that the authenticated
421 id is a complete email address, and it uses it as is when creating From:
422 or Sender: lines.
42414. It is now possible to make retry rules that apply only when the failing
425 message has a specific sender. In particular, this can be used to define
426 retry rules that apply only to bounce messages. The syntax is to add a new
427 third item to a retry rule, of the form "senders=<address list>". The retry
428 timings themselves then become the fourth item. For example:
430 * * senders=: F,1h,30m
432 would match all bounce messages. If the address list contains white space,
433 it must be enclosed in quotes. For example:
435 a.domain timeout senders="x@b.dom : y@c.dom" G,8h,10m,1.5
437 When testing retry rules using -brt, you can supply a sender using the -f
438 command line option, like this:
440 exim -f "" -brt user@dom.ain
442 If you do not set -f with -brt, a retry rule that contains a senders list
443 will never be matched.
44515. Two new control modifiers have been added to ACLs: "control = enforce_sync"
446 and "control = no_enforce_sync". This makes it possible to be selective
447 about when SMTP synchronization is enforced. The global option
448 smtp_enforce_sync now specifies the default state of the switch. These
449 controls can appear in any ACL, but the most obvious place to put them is
450 in the ACL defined by acl_smtp_connect, which is run at the start of an
451 incoming SMTP connection, before the first synchronization check.
45316. Another two new control modifiers are "control = caseful_local_part" and
454 "control = caselower_local_part". These are permitted only in the ACL
455 specified by acl_smtp_rcpt (i.e. during RCPT processing). By default, the
456 contents of $local_part are lower cased before ACL processing.
457 After "control = caseful_local_part", any uppercase letters in the original
458 local part are restored in $local_part for the rest of the ACL, or until
459 "control = caselower_local_part" is encountered. However, this applies only
460 to local part handling that takes place directly in the ACL (for example,
461 as a key in lookups). If a "verify = recipient" test is obeyed, the
462 case-related handling of the local part during the verification is
463 controlled by the router configuration (see the caseful_local_part generic
464 router option).
466 This facility could be used, for example, to add a spam score to local
467 parts containing upper case letters. For example, using $acl_m4 to
468 accumulate the spam score:
470 warn control = caseful_local_part
471 set acl_m4 = ${eval:\
472 $acl_m4 + \
473 ${if match{$local_part}{[A-Z]}{1}{0}}\
474 }
475 control = caselower_local_part
477 Notice that we put back the lower cased version afterwards, assuming that
478 is what is wanted for subsequent tests.
48017. The option hosts_connection_nolog is provided so that certain hosts can be
481 excepted from logging when the +smtp_connection log selector is set. For
482 example, you might want not to log SMTP connections from local processes,
483 or from, or from your local LAN. The option is a host list with
484 an unset default. Because it is consulted in the main loop of the daemon,
485 you should strive to restrict its value to a short inline list of IP
486 addresses and networks. To disable logging SMTP connections from local
487 processes, you must create a host list with an empty item. For example:
489 hosts_connection_nolog = :
491 If the +smtp_connection log selector is not set, this option has no effect.
49318. There is now an acl called acl_smtp_quit, which is run for the QUIT
494 command. The outcome of the ACL does not affect the response code to QUIT,
495 which is always 221. Thus, the ACL does not in fact control any access.
496 For this reason, the only verbs that are permitted are "accept" and "warn".
498 The ACL can be used for tasks such as custom logging at the end of an SMTP
499 session. For example, you can use ACL variables in other ACLs to count
500 messages, recipients, etc., and log the totals at QUIT time using one or
501 more "logwrite" modifiers on a "warn" command.
503 You do not need to have a final "accept", but if you do, you can use a
504 "message" modifier to specify custom text that is sent as part of the 221
505 response.
507 This ACL is run only for a "normal" QUIT. For certain kinds of disastrous
508 failure (for example, failure to open a log file, or when Exim is bombing
509 out because it has detected an unrecoverable error), all SMTP commands
510 from the client are given temporary error responses until QUIT is received
511 or the connection is closed. In these special cases, the ACL is not run.
51319. The appendfile transport has two new options, mailbox_size and mailbox_
514 filecount. If either these options are set, it is expanded, and the result
515 is taken as the current size of the mailbox or the number of files in the
516 mailbox, respectively. This makes it possible to use some external means of
517 maintaining the data about the size of a mailbox for enforcing quota
518 limits. The result of expanding these option values must be a decimal
519 number, optionally followed by "K" or "M".
52120. It seems that there are broken clients in use that cannot handle multiline
522 SMTP responses. Can't people who implement these braindead programs read?
523 RFC 821 mentions multiline responses, and it is over 20 years old. They
524 must handle multiline responses for EHLO, or do they still use HELO?
525 Anyway, here is YAWFAB (yet another workaround for asinine brokenness).
526 There's a new ACL switch that can be set by
528 control = no_multiline_responses
530 If this is set, it suppresses multiline SMTP responses from ACL rejections.
531 One way of doing this would have been just to put out these responses as
532 one long line. However, RFC 2821 specifies a maximum of 512 bytes per
533 response ("use multiline responses for more" it says), and some of the
534 responses might get close to that. So I have implemented this by doing two
535 very easy things:
537 (1) Extra information that is normally output as part of a rejection
538 caused by sender verification failure is omitted. Only the final line
539 (typically "sender verification failed") is now sent.
541 (2) If a "message" modifier supplies a multiline response, only the first
542 line is output.
544 The setting of the switch can, of course, be made conditional on the
545 calling host.
54721. There is now support for the libradius library that comes with FreeBSD.
548 This is an alternative to the radiusclient library that Exim already
549 supports. To use the FreeBSD library, you need to set
553 in Local/Makefile, in addition to RADIUS_CONFIGURE_FILE, and you probably
554 also need -libradius in EXTRALIBS.
557Version 4.42
560 1. The "personal" filter test is brought up-to-date with recommendations from
561 the Sieve specification: (a) The list of non-personal From: addresses now
562 includes "listserv", "majordomo", and "*-request"; (b) If the message
563 contains any header line starting with "List=-" it is treated as
564 non-personal.
566 2. The Sieve functionality has been extended to support the "copy" and
567 "vacation" extensions, and comparison tests.
569 3. There is now an overall timeout for performing a callout verification. It
570 defaults to 4 times the callout timeout, which applies to individual SMTP
571 commands during the callout. The overall timeout applies when there is more
572 than one host that can be tried. The timeout is checked before trying the
573 next host. This prevents very long delays if there are a large number of
574 hosts and all are timing out (e.g. when the network connections are timing
575 out). The value of the overall timeout can be changed by specifying an
576 additional sub-option for "callout", called "maxwait". For example:
578 verify = sender/callout=5s,maxwait=20s
580 4. Changes to the "personal" filter test:
582 (1) The list of non-personal local parts in From: addresses has been
583 extended to include "listserv", "majordomo", "*-request", and "owner-*",
584 taken from the Sieve specification recommendations.
586 (2) If the message contains any header line starting with "List-" it is
587 treated as non-personal.
589 (3) The test for "circular" in the Subject: header line has been removed
590 because it now seems ill-conceived.
592 5. The autoreply transport has a new option called never_mail. This is an
593 address list. If any run of the transport creates a message with a
594 recipient that matches any item in the list, that recipient is quietly
595 discarded. If all recipients are discarded, no message is created.
598Version 4.40
601The documentation is up-to-date for the 4.40 release. What follows here is a
602brief list of the new features that have been added since 4.30.
604 1. log_incoming_interface affects more log lines.
606 2. New ACL modifier "control = submission".
608 3. CONFIGURE_OWNER can be set at build time to define an alternative owner for
609 the configuration file, in addition to root and exim.
611 4. Added expansion variables $body_zerocount, $recipient_data, and
612 $sender_data.
614 5. The time of last modification of the "new" subdirectory is now used as the
615 "mailbox time last read" when there is a quota error for a maildir
616 delivery.
618 6. The special item "+ignore_unknown" may now appear in host lists.
620 7. The special domain-matching patterns @mx_any, @mx_primary, and
621 @mx_secondary can now be followed by "/ignore=<ip list>".
623 8. New expansion conditions: match_domain, match_address, match_local_part,
624 lt, lti, le, lei, gt, gti, ge, and new expansion operators time_interval,
625 eval10, and base62d.
627 9. New lookup type called "iplsearch".
62910. New log selectors ident_timeout, tls_certificate_verified, queue_time,
630 deliver_time, outgoing_port, return_path_on_delivery.
63211. New global options smtp_active_hostname and tls_require_ciphers.
63412. Exinext has -C and -D options.
63613. "domainlist_cache" forces caching of an apparently variable list.
63814. For compatibility with Sendmail, the command line option -prval:sval
639 is equivalent to -oMr rval -oMs sval.
64115. New callout options use_sender and use_postmaster for use when verifying
642 recipients.
64416. John Jetmore's "exipick" utility has been added to the distribution.
64617. The TLS code now supports CRLs.
64818. The dnslookup router and the dnsdb lookup type now support the use of SRV
649 records.
65119. The redirect router has a new option called qualify_domain.
65320. exigrep's output now also includes lines that are not related to any
654 particular message, but which do match the pattern.
65621. New global option write_rejectlog. If it is set false, Exim no longer
657 writes anything to the reject log.
