aptitude hold maildrop


Good luck folks, I had a lot of mail getting queued but seems OK now.


This did the trick. I first uninstalled courier-maildrop and then did what you suggested and now it works, thanks so much!!!!

I'm glad it worked out, the explicit version install is good to know, too.

Are there any plans to support the new courier-maildrop?


Cheers

I guess that you will have to ask this the maintainer of the ubuntu maildrop package. Maybe you reach him on the ubuntu mailing lists.

Glad my fix is working for everyone, I just wish the new version was working too. :-/ I have no idea when the package owner will fix it, that's up to them.

Also, you don't need to remove courier-maildrop first if you had put it on for testing as part of this debacle; the 'install maildrop=2.0.4-3' will remove it for you since it conflicts.

My hope is when the new version is fixed, someone will be nice enough to post it up here so we can 'aptitude unhold maildrop' and let it update again. My fear is some security flaw will become known in this version and we won't be able to correct it due to this upgrade bug.

Hello guys,

Mhh... its in the unstable sources (im on debian) so its "okay" that it might not work properly.

My question was related to ispconfig and its support of the new courier authlib. As far as i understand it maildrop uses the courier authlib - in the previous version they directly used a mysql auth from maildrop.

With correct setting files (provided by ispconfig) working with this new auth lib the current maildrop should work, right ?

cheers
Max

No, thats not the case as maildrop auth is not configured separately. Maildrop uses the normal auth mechanism of courier and this is set at compile time by the maildrop package maintainer. ISPConfig configures only courier-authdaemon which is used as authentication source for all courier based applications incl. maildrop.

Take a look at the courier config files.

Which Ubuntu version do you use that causes this problem? I installed just a fresh Ubuntu 9.10 server with all updates applied and ISPConfig 3.0.1.6 and the mail delivery works, no maildrop errors. Maybe there is a bug in the maildrop package that occurs only when its is updated and not when its newly installed.

[update] This is the version of the maildrop package installed on my test system:

Code:
dpkg -l | grep maildrop
ii  maildrop                          2.0.4-3+lenny3build0.9.10.1       mail delivery agent with filtering abilities
