Name        : mimedefang
Product     : Fedora 14
Version     : 2.72
Release     : 2.fc14
URL         : http://www.mimedefang.org/
Summary     : E-Mail filtering framework using Sendmail's Milter interface
Description :
MIMEDefang is an e-mail filter program which works with Sendmail 8.12
and later. It filters all e-mail messages sent via SMTP. MIMEDefang
splits multi-part MIME messages into their components and potentially
deletes or modifies the various parts. It then reassembles the parts
back into an e-mail message and sends it on its way.

There are some caveats you should be aware of before using MIMEDefang.
MIMEDefang potentially alters e-mail messages. This breaks a "gentleman's
agreement" that mail transfer agents do not modify message bodies. This
could cause problems, for example, with encrypted or signed messages.

Update Information:

  * The "make unstripped" target has disappeared.  Instead, use:  make INSTALL_STRIP_FLAG=''
  * The RPM_INSTALL_ROOT make variable has disappeared.  Instead, use the standard DESTDIR:  make install DESTDIR=/some/dir
  * In mimedefang.c, truncate overlong responses from the multiplexor. Also sanitize replies so "\r" doesn't get fed to smfi_setmlreply
  * If a slave process replies with a very long reply, have the multiplexor consume (and discard) the excess input so the multiplexor-to-slave protocol does not become de-synchronized
  * When mimedefang becomes a daemon, have it wait for a "go/no-go" message from the child before exiting.  This should eliminate race conditions whereby the MTA starts before the milter socket is present
  * Avoid run-time errors from Unix::Syslog on some platforms
  * Change md_syslog to log the Sendmail Queue-ID if it is available
  * Remove references to ParanoidFiler
