MailServe for Mountain Lion 6.0.3
Category : Technology
In the previous version, 6.0.2, I changed the way de-install works by forcing the user to stop Postfix and Dovecot manually before they can do a de-install. This was to ensure I have given every Postfix process sufficient time to finish their work before I delete the Postfix directory that was set up by MailServe.
However that wasn't very popular and so I have reverted it. The users are not used to having to stop Postfix and Dovecot manually before they do a de-install. They expect the system to do it for them. I will have to find some other ways of ensuring the completion of Postfix processes before I kill the system.
This version of MailServe also introduces a new field to allow Dovecot users to control the number of concurrent connections a user can make to the server. The default is 10 but the administrator can increase it when it has multiple clients accessing the server from multiple devices.
Finally this version fixes a bug in the Spam panel whereby the procmailrc file gets saved to the system with environment variables, like $HOME, etc... getting unintentionally expanded to hard-coded paths.
