Release Notes: An issue introduced in version 1.5 that caused issues with DNS lookups when using a non-default SMTP server was resolved. Additional cleanup changes were also made to script and configuration files.
Release Notes: The server adds a From: address if the message is received without one (firstname.lastname@example.org). The server would previously accept these messages but throw errors when it tried to deliver them: "Unable to parse the address from the stored file." Socket timeout has been added to SMTP processor sockets. This may address issues with threads getting hung in socket.read calls.
Release Notes: The option to limit the maximum size for incoming messages was added. The configuration parameter is in megabytes (2^10) and defaults to 5. The ability to specify a port number for the outgoing (default) SMPT servers was added. A new configuration option was added to allow relaying based on the "from" email address.
Release Notes: This version implements an improved back-off algorithm for failed delivery and a 'dead letter' folder for messages that can not be delivered after a user defined number of retries. Other minor error handling improvements were also implemented.
Release Notes: This version fixes a major bug with the forward addresses feature, fixes how the socket listener binds to 'all' local addresses, and adds a new SMTP header for local email, which is useful when using a default mailbox.
