12.0 October 2nd 2018. MailServe for Mojave released. The current Postfix version on macOS Mojave is 3.2.2. MailServe includes a new Dovecot binary, version 2.2.36 (1f10bfa63). The Fetchmail version is still 6.3.26+SSL but this is the very latest version.
12.0.1 October 3rd 2018. This version sets the Postfix parameter "smtpd_tls_security_level=may” instead of “encrypt” in master.cf so that the mail server will not insist that clients must commuicate with it via SSL On the client, in Mail.app, set “Allow insecure authentication” to on, for both the Incoming and Outgoinig Mail Server, if you want Mail.app to communicate with the mail server without SSL (e.g., if you don’t have an SSL certificate). To get this new functionality, there’s no need to do a De-Install. Just do a Restart Mail Server.
12.0.2 October 4th 2018. Added a “Use Plain Login” checkbox to the Outgoing Panel (to the outgoing smtp relay host parameters). This is needed, e.g., if the relay host is smtp.gmail.com, which requires the password authentication mechanism to be of type “plain”, or some such similar smtp servers. If you’re having trouble authenticating with a relay host, try with this option set.
12.1.2 March 30th 2019. The log is back. This is the first version of MailServe that includes its own build of Postfix and the SASL authentication libraries. The Postfix and Fetchmail log is now at /var/log/postfix.log. It can be viewed from MailServe’s Log Panel or via the Console app. And it will be rotated automatically so it won’t fill up disk space indefinitely. Dovecot now has its own log at /var/log/dovecot.log. Shift-click on the Get Mail Log button to access the Dovecot log. This will also be automatically rotated. The Postfix version is now 3.4.4. And Dovecot 2.3.5.
Important Tech Note: To upgrade to version 12.1.2, assuming you’ve already opened 12.1.2, first do a Save (config) from the File menu. Then do a De-Install from MailServe’s Help menu. Then do a Open… and open the saved config file. Finally, Start Mail Server.
