MERCURY MAIL TRANSPORT AGENT FOR NOVELL AND 32BITS WINDOWS.
Last update 10-Aug-09.
This version, 4.72 is released on 21-July-2009.
Changes and additions for version 4.72 - added since the release of version 4.62.
- This version has support for direct-connect SSL to the IMAP server (only).
- This version can be run as a native Windows Service (finally!!).
- Fixes the problem with CPU maxing out in service mode. CPU usage should now be normal.
- Has a change that should correct a situation where Daemons would no longer load without a full path to the DLL in DAEMON.INI (services do not have a default "working directory", so now Mercury will force a current directory by itself).
- There is a new splash graphic reflecting the updated version number.
- The help has been largely updated - there is now a section (linked on the contents page) on running Mercury as a service.
- You can now suppress short-term blacklisting on specified address ranges in MercuryS, MercuryI and MercuryP: do this using a connection control ACL entry. This will allow people using shared addressing technologies to prevent all their users from being locked out because of the actions of one idiot.
- There was a nasty bug in Mercury's content control in which certain types of addresses (in particular, any single address longer than 256 characters within a multi-address string) will cause an instant crash. Fixed
- A new MercuryS connection control attribute is added, that allows you to exempt certain address ranges from message size restrictions. So, if the attribute is enabled for a connection in the specified range, MercuryS will accept messages of any size even if an ESMTP size limit is in effect globally.
- Mercury would crash when it attempts to apply Content Control to an address like:
=?iso-8859-1?Q?S=E4hk=F6po etc. This has now been fixed
- Adds an ad-hoc fix for a problem with MercuryC blocking the core module in very large queues.
- Includes a fix for certain types of RFC2047-encoded subject fields with line breaks that could cause crashes in older versions.
- Includes the ability to exempt connections from size restrictions in MercuryS (in the "connection control" page).
- Includes more updates to the help, in particular with regard to specifying APOP shared secrets in the MercuryP help.
- If you have a message that contains these headers
and it is submitted to a copy of Mercury running as "hera.pmail.gen.nz", the MAIL FROM that will be sent to the remote host will be
The fix has been applied to both MercuryE and MercuryC
