Name        : dovecot

Summary     : Secure imap and pop3 server
Description :
Dovecot is an IMAP server for Linux/UNIX-like systems, written with security
primarily in mind.  It also contains a small POP3 server.  It supports mail
in either of maildir or mbox formats.

The SQL drivers and authentication plug-ins are in their subpackages.

Update Information:

* acl plugin: Added an alternative global ACL file that can contain mailbox patterns. See http://wiki2.dovecot.org/ACL for details.
* imap proxy: Added proxy_nopipelining passdb setting to work around other IMAP servers' bugs (MS Exchange 2013 especially).
* Added %{auth_user}, %{auth_username} and %{auth_domain} variables. See http://wiki2.dovecot.org/Variables for details.
* Added support for LZ4 compression.
* stats: Track also wall clock time for commands.
* pop3_migration plugin improvements to try harder to match the UIDLs correctly.
* imap: SEARCH/SORT PARTIAL reponses may have been too large.
* doveadm backup: Fixed assert-crash when syncing mailbox deletion.

  CONDSTORE/QRESYNC has never before been enabled for the mailbox.

  (When [NOMODSEQ] is returned by SELECT, mainly with in-memory
- imap: Various fixes to METADATA support.

  (e.g. indexer-worker) may have been logging errors about not being
  able to open /proc/self/io.
* Mon Nov 25 2013 Michal Hlavinka <mhlavink at redhat.com> - 1:2.2.9-1
- improved cache file handling exposed several old bugs related to fetching 
  mail headers.
- iostream handling changes were causing some connections to be disconnected
  before flushing their output
* Wed Nov 20 2013 Michal Hlavinka <mhlavink at redhat.com> - 1:2.2.8-1
- Fixed infinite loop in message parsing if message ends with
  "--boundary" and CR (without LF). Messages saved via SMTP/LMTP can't
  trigger this, because messages must end with an "LF.". A user could
  trigger this for him/herself though.
- lmtp: Client was sometimes disconnected before all the output was
  sent to it.
- replicator: Database wasn't being exported to disk every 15 minutes
  as it should have. Instead it was being imported, causing "doveadm
  replicator remove" commands to not work very well.

This update can be installed with the "yum" update program.  Use
su -c 'yum update dovecot' at the command line.
