Version 6.2.6-pre8 of fetchmail

Release Notes: A remote root vulnerability in POP3/UIDL handling was fixed (CAN-2005-2335, requisite compromised/malicious POP3 server). Tracepolls now works. A socket leak with SSL failures was plugged. The Received: header no longer contains garbage with smtphost set. The PID file is now FHS compliant. --silent now also works for ODMR. Warning emails now have a From: header. IMAP can use passwords of arbitrary length from the rc file. Oversized messages are now deleted with --flush unless in daemon mode. lock_release was renamed to fix a Darwin namespace collision. The manual page was corrected and updated.

    Release Notes: This release fixes a STARTTLS denial of service vulnerability (CVE-2011-1947). It reduces repetitions in "unseen" message logging and speeds up IMAP fetches with full mailboxes quite a bit.
