Still haven’t found the time to play with all the new features introduced in Postfix 2.3.0 and it’s already updated to 2.3.3. Is time really moving this fast or is development on Postfix that good. I will leave this one up to you to decide.

The important issues that got fixed in this release:

  • File corruption while executing a Milter “header insert” action
    with headers-only mail (found with dk-filter). Delivery agents
    would go into an infinite loop because some queue file update
    had been done in the wrong order. As a precaution, delivery
    agents now detect such loops, and the queue manager now saves
    such mail to the “corrupt” directory.
  • Segmentation fault in the SMTP client while saving a cached
    connection with unsent data. Postfix indexed some table with -1,
    because some I/O cleanup had been done in the wrong order. The
    same problem should exist in Postfix 2.2.
  • Postfix no longer announces its name in delivery status notifications.
    All other details of the default bounce text remain unchanged.
    The reason for this change is that too many people believe that
    Wietse provides a free helpdesk service that solves all their
    email problems.
