Version 4.6.3 of getmail

Release Notes: A regression was fixed in which spurious errors were thrown when the required multidrop retriever parameter "envelope_recipient" was not present in the getmailrc file. A regression was fixed in which getmail_fetch no longer properly supported external MDAs because of problems parsing the arguments to them. getmail's handling of regular expressions in the "locals" parameter of MultiSorter destination was change to allow it to handle backslashes correctly. Unfortunately, this means complicating the configuration syntax slightly. Filters were updated to use new configuration code. Obsolete code was removed.
