Fedora Update Notification
FEDORA-2004-508
2004-12-03
---------------------------------------------------------------------

Product : Fedora Core 3
Name : cyrus-imapd
Version : 2.2.10
Release : 3.fc3
Summary : A high-performance mail server with IMAP, POP3, NNTP and SIEVE support.
Description :
The cyrus-imapd package contains the core of the Cyrus IMAP server. It is a scaleable enterprise mail system designed for use from small to large enterprise environments using standards-based internet mail technologies.

A full Cyrus IMAP implementation allows a seamless mail and bulletin board environment to be set up across multiple servers. It differs from other IMAP server implementations in that it is run on "sealed" servers, where users are not normally permitted to log in. The mailbox database is stored in parts of the filesystem that are private to the Cyrus IMAP server. All user access to mail is through software using the IMAP, POP3, or KPOP protocols. TLSv1 and SSL are supported for security.

Update Information:

The recent update to cyrus-imapd-2.2.10-1.fc3 for security exploits revealed a package installation problem. If the main configuration files for cyrus-imapd

/etc/imapd.conf
/etc/cyrus.conf

had been locally modified for site specific purposes those changes could be overwritten when the new updated version is installed causing the package to lose its local configuration and behavior. Actually, the old version the configuration files should have been preserved in backup copies with the .rpmsave extension if the config file in the new rpm version was different from the version in the previous rpm.

If you upgraded to cyrus-imapd-2.2.10-1.fc3 you may want to verify the contents of these configuration files against any .rpmsave backup copies and copy over any configuration edits.

This version of the cyrus-imapd package is identical to cyrus-imapd-2.2.10-1.fc3 with the single exception that those configuration files are marked as "noreplace" which means rpm will not replace them in favor of the new rpm version, instead it will preserve the existing version of the config file and create a copy with the extension .rpmnew, if and only if the config file changed. This is more friendly to existing installations.

If you have not yet installed cyrus-imapd-2.2.10-1.fc3 we suggest you skip that version of the package and install cyrus-imapd-2.2.10-3.fc3 instead. This eliminates the potential to lose configuration changes.

* Thu Dec 02 2004 John Dennis jdennis@redhat.com 2.2.10-3.fc3

- fix bug #141673, dup of bug #141470
Also make cyrus.conf noreplace in addition to imapd.conf
Remove the verify overrides on the noreplace config files,
we do want config file changes visible when verifying

* Wed Dec 01 2004 John Dennis jdennis@redhat.com 2.2.10-2.fc3
