GNU Mailutils is a collection of utilities for handling electronic mail.
It contains a series of useful mail clients and servers built around
the single core library.

Specifically, the package contains a pop3, an imap4 server, a sieve
mail filter, and a movemail program. It also provides a POSIX `mailx'
client, `movemail' - a program for interfacing with GNU Emacs, and
a collection of other tools. All programs are capable of reading and
storing mail in a variety of formats.

More information about the package is available from the following

Please email bugs or suggestions to <address@hidden>.

Following is the list of user-visible changes in this release.

* New features:

** Both imap4d and pop3d accept new command line option `--tls-required'.

The option disables any authentication commands until the client party
establishes TLS connection with the server.

** Pop3d server accepts new option `--delete-expired'.

This option is to be used together with `--expire'. It enables
automatic deletion of expired messages before closing the
mailbox. Previous versions of pop3d relied on a cron job that
was supposed to purge users' mailboxes, but such usage is extremely
ineffective for mail servers with considerable number of users.

** The package can be compiled with support for both MySQL and PostgreSQL
simultaneously. Which of the interfaces to use is defined at run time
by --sql-interface option.

** Mail.local is able to retrieve mailbox quotas from SQL database.

* movemail: Special mode for improved interface with Emacs (--emacs option)

* Support for GNU SASL version 0.2.3. 

* Bug fixes
