fetchmail-6.4.12 (released 2020-09-04, 27596 LoC):


  • The README file is now the one from Git again. The script used to roll and upload the tarball sometimes clobbered the README file and replaced its contents by a part of the NEWS file.


(This section floats upwards through the NEWS file so it stays with the current release information)

  • Fetchmail does not handle messages without Message-ID header well (See bug #780933)
  • Fetchmail currently uses 31-bit signed integers in several places where unsigned and/or wider types should have been used, for instance, for mailbox sizes, and misreports sizes of 2 GibiB and beyond. Fixing this requires C89 compatibility to be relinquished.
  • BSMTP is mostly untested and errors can cause corrupt output.
  • Fetchmail does not track pending deletes across crashes.
  • The command line interface is sometimes a bit stubborn, for instance, fetchmail -s doesn't work with a daemon running.
  • Linux systems may return duplicates of an IP address in some circumstances if no or no global IPv6 addresses are configured. (No workaround. Ubuntu Bug#582585, Novell Bug#606980.)
  • Kerberos 5 may be broken, particularly on Heimdal, and provide bogus error messages. This will not be fixed, because the maintainer has no Kerberos 5 server to test against. Use GSSAPI.
