fetchmail 6.3.10 release available (STABLE)

Greetings,

I am announcing the release of fetchmail 6.3.10.
This new stable version of fetchmail fixes some bugs, updates
documentation, and makes various other changes, see below for details.

The software is available from:
<http://developer.berlios.de/project/showfiles.php?group_id=1824>

The fetchmail home pages are:
<http://www.fetchmail.info/>  or  <http://fetchmail.berlios.de/>

These are the relevant changes in 6.3.10 since 6.3.9;
unless otherwise noted, changes to this release were made by Matthias Andree:

# ADVANCE WARNING OF FEATURES TO BE REMOVED OR CHANGED IN FUTURE VERSIONS
(There are no plans to remove features from a 6.3.X release, but they may be
removed from a 6.4.0 or newer release.)
* The MX and host alias DNS lookups that fetchmail performs in multidrop mode
  are based on assumptions that are rarely met in practice, somewhat defective,
  deprecated and may be removed from a future fetchmail version.
  They have never supported IPv6 (including IPv6-mapped IPv4).
  Non-DNS based alias keywords such as "aka" will remain in fetchmail.
* The monitor and interface options may be removed from a future fetchmail
  version as they are not reasonably portable across operating systems.
* POP2 is obsolete, support will be removed from a future fetchmail version.
* RPOP is obsolete, support will be removed from a future fetchmail release.
* --sslcertck will become a default setting in a future fetchmail version.
* The multidrop To/Cc guessing code along with the fragile duplicate suppressor
  is deprecated and may be removed from a future release.

questions using fetchmail with ssl

hello,

i am using fetchmail 6.3.8 on a os x server (10.5.7).
when testing fetchmail using ssl for a customer some questions came up.

my .fetchmailrc file looks like:

poll SSL_SERVER with
      protocol pop3
      uidl
      username "USER"
      password "PASSWORD"
      ssl
      sslcertck
      sslcertpath "/Users/chris/.certs"
      keep

my .certs directory looks like

lrwxr-xr-x   1 chris  staff    15 Jul  6 11:38 164c8de9.0 ->  
sslmailpool.pem
lrwxr-xr-x   1 chris  staff    23 Jul  6 11:38 57692373.0 ->

fetchmail with maildrop

Dear All,

I have a virtual local mail server installed and running successfully. I do
fetchmail to get all the emails from the remote server. Now I wanted to
introduce Maildrop also in between. When I am relaying email from the
remote, its working fine. But with fetchmail its not working. My fetchmail
configuration is as

poll remote.server.ip
      proto pop3
     user bijayant.kumar <at> example.com
     pass bijayant
     is bijayant.kumar <at> example.com here

When I am accessing this via
fetchmail -m "/usr/bin/maildrop -d vmail"

I am getting error "/usr/bin/maildrop : You are not a trusted User". I tried
it with varios combination after -d like "%T, vmail ...." but no luck.

In postfix master.cf I have
maildrop  unix  -       n       n       -       -       pipe
        flags=DRhu user=vmail argv=/usr/bin/maildrop /etc/maildroprc  -d
${user} <at> ${nexthop} ${extension} ${recipient} ${user} ${nexthop} ${sender}

Please help me, I have searched archive till date, but did not find any
solution or pointer.

A quick Google for your error turned up a long list of relevant
articles which show that you need to tell maildrop that the user
you're running fetchmail as is a trusted user.  I'd suggest you have a
look yourself, but here are a couple of examples:

maillog entry

I know that is probably a dumb question; however, exactly what does
this log entry mean?

Jul 14 06:04:52 scorpio fetchmail[1235]: 1 message for me <at> isp.net at pop.spamcop.net (1870 octets).
Jul 14 06:04:52 scorpio fetchmail[1235]: reading message me <at> isp.net <at> pop.isp.net:1 of 1 (1870 octets)
(log message incomplete)
Jul 14 06:04:52 scorpio fetchmail[1235]: incorrect header line found while scanning headers
Jul 14 06:04:52 scorpio fetchmail[1235]: message delimiter found while scanning headers
Jul 14 06:04:52 scorpio fetchmail[1235]: flushed

I obviously mungled the actual email address. I have been finding these 
messages in my maillog frequently lately.

It means that somebody sent you an email where there was no blank line
between the headers and the body, as is required by the RFCs.  This is
nearly always a sign of spam - please search the list archives for
more details.
