mailutils - GNU mailutils utilities for handling mail

Mailutils is a set of utilities and daemons for processing e-mail.
All Mailutils programs are able to operate on mailboxes of various formats, including UNIX maildrops, maildir, and transparently accessed remote mailboxes (IMAP4, POP3, SMTP).

Included is an implementation of the traditional UNIX mail reader, "mail", command line utilities such as "frm", "messages", "readmsg", as well as "sieve", a flexible utility for filtering the incoming mail.

A special feature of Mailutils is an implementation of the
MH Message Handling System, which combines the UNIX philosophy with a flexibility of Mailutils libraries, thus allowing to incorporate mail from remote mailboxes.

For system administrators, Mailutils provides a set of daemons for delivering and reading electronic mail, including
pop3d, imap4d and a universal mail delivery agent, called maidag.

OpenSUSE Tumbleweed oss: Updated from 3.7-1.1 to 3.8-1.1

Yesterday
  • Update to mailutils 3.8
    • The maidag utility is withdrawn (CVE-2019-18862, bsc#1156495) The main purpose of this utility was to work as local mail delivery agent (MDA), a program responsible for final delivery of email messages to the recipient's mailbox. As such it required suid privileges. In parallel with its main purpose, it also was able to work in two other modes: the 'url' mode, designed to deliver mails to arbitrary mailbox URLs, and 'lmtp' mode, in which it acted as local mail transport daemon. Neither of these needed suid privileges. The unfortunate design decision to combine the three modes in a single versatile tool resulted in local privilege escalation threat in 'url' mode.
      To fix this, maidag has been replaced by three different utilities, each one with a precisely defined purpose and carefully designed privileges: mda, lmtpd, and putmail.
    • mda
    • lmtpd
    • putmail
    • Use of TLS in pop3d run from inetd
    • comsatd --test
    • mail
    • * fix the semantics of 'hold' and 'keepsave' variables
    • * New message type specification ":s"
