POPMail 2.1.1 released

Fri, 10 Sep 2004 20:31:07 -0000

POPMail is a POP3 server-side email checker and filter. It filters messages according to rules specified by the user in a file.

2.1.1 comes as a fix to 2.1 that was hidden because of an important bug found during tests that made filters not work properly.

This release includes that bugfix, and added features to interactive mode (range and multiple deletion, ...).

POPMail 2.1 release frozen

Fri, 10 Sep 2004 10:02:25 -0000

When testing 2.1 POPMail release a bug about filtering and accept rule was found.

The bug is present since version 1.2 and causes an accept rule to be ignored if a line of the header of the message that matches a deny one is *before* the line that matches the accept rule.

This is because the filtering algorithm. It's being worked and will be released a fixed version as soon as possible.

POPMail 2.1 released

Wed, 08 Sep 2004 23:26:13 -0000

POPMail is a pop3 email checker and server-side spam eraser. Version 2.1 includes new message deletion system and some bugfixes.

Now you can delete message ranges from inside POPMail interactive mode. You can also delete any number of messages you want at once (including ranges, too).

Now the program shows a "progress" indicating the headers it its downloading by printing a dot for each message. Before, downloading large amounts of messages was annoying because POPMail appeared to "hang". Now you can make yourself an idea of what's happening.

This is the first release after the loose of my local POPMail data. Some info on ChangeLog or so can be inexact (or perhaps some bugs can appear again...).

POPMail local data lost

Sat, 13 Mar 2004 15:14:28 -0000

Recently, POPMail storage location had some errors, and lots of POPMail history data were lost, even some changes made since 2.0 version as all RCS changes information since 1.3 version (no, I don't use CVS).

For this reason, future versions perhaps
will not have correct Changelog and so information.

POPMail 2.0 released

Sat, 04 Oct 2003 14:44:53 -0000

POPMail is a pop3 email checker and server-side spam eraser. New version 2.0 includes bugfixes and 'add-filters' capabilities inside interactive mode.

This new version consist in a major code reorganization, made more modular and intends to bear to 'object-orientation'-like. Also includes a filtering capabilitie inside interactive mode, so you can add filters easily from messages kept in the server.

Also reorganized freeing mem routines, so now main function deals with it (before it was done inside interactive mode or server routines).

Bugfixes include:
- Accept rules now work properly (I hope)
- Don't try to delete inside interactive mode messages that were deleted before. Now main function handles real deletion stuff (-ERR no such message won't be shown).

Buffer overflow on POPMail 1.3 interactive mode

Fri, 01 Aug 2003 00:23:39 -0000

POPMail interactive mode can raise a buffer overflow by entering an
input line too long. It can compromise system security, so I uploaded a
patch to 1.3 version to fix it.

It is about GetnWord function, it did not controlled string lengths, and
a pointer accessed (and wrote) out of strings' bounds. I hope it is
fixed at all.

POPMail 1.3 Released

Wed, 30 Jul 2003 22:09:44 -0000

POPMail is a POP3 account mail filter. POPMail Version 1.3 includes interactive mode.

From interactive mode you can list messages' headers, delete messages in the server, undelete them, etc. What you cannot do yet is filter headers inside interactive mode. I'm working on it for 1.4 release. I hope you find this new mode useful.
