Fedora Update Notification

Product     : Fedora Core 2
Name        : cyrus-imapd
Version     : 2.2.10                      
Release     : 3.fc2                  
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

Update Information:

The recent update to cyrus-imapd-2.2.10-1.fc2 for security exploits
revealed a package installation problem. If the main configuration
files for cyrus-imapd


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.fc2 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.fc2 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.fc2 we
suggest you skip that version of the package and install
cyrus-imapd-2.2.10-3.fc2 instead. This eliminates the
potential to lose configuration changes.

* Thu Dec 02 2004 John Dennis <jdennis at redhat.com> 2.2.10-3.fc2

- 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 at redhat.com> 2.2.10-2.fc2

- fix bug #141470, make imapd.conf a noreplace config file
