Shared Mailbox processes messages sent to multiple firstname.lastname@example.org handled through a single mailbox. This is useful for those running mailing lists or low budget mail facilities for multiple users and aliases through a single domain but where a static IP address is not available and POP3/IMAP or similar mailbox availability is limited. It is installed in a pseudo-user's .forward or .qmail file and provides an alternative to fetchmail for the local distribution function. Unlike fetchmail, externally aliased addresses (e.g., for remote mailing list owner or approval addresses) are handled. Mail loop detection is provided through a header unique to each installation and by counting Received: headers.
Release Notes: A couple of bug fixes were made. An incorrectly placed variable initialization was fixed. Loop detection using the special header was broken during development prior to the version 0.1 by adding X-style to the header. This has been fixed more permanently by matching on the scalar variable, $ldk_header, rather than its previous value.
No changes have been submitted for this release.
