Name        : mimedefang
Product     : Fedora 22
Version     : 2.76
Release     : 1.fc22
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:

Upstream changes for MIMEDefang 2.76:

  * mimedefang.pl.in: Get rid of all Perl function prototypes. Perl prototypes are badly-implemented and consensus among modern Perl 5 programmers is they shouldn't be used. https://www.securecoding.cert.org/confluence/display/perl/DCL00-PL.+Do+not+use+subroutine+prototypes
  * Add support for filter_wrapup callback.  This is called at the very end and permits header modifications, but not body modifications.  Useful for DKIM-signing.
  * mimedefang.pl.in: Fix typo: SOPHOS should have been SAVSCAN
  * mimedefang.c: Don't add a MIME-Version header if there is already one.
  * Fix https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=646347 courtesy of Chrisoph Martin
  * Minor clarifications to mimedefang-filter man page.
  * Add "All / Summary" button to watch-multiple-mimedefangs.tcl
