Version 1.0.12 released. Fail2ban users please note revised error format in logs includes a port number so you'll need to tweak the filter prefregex to include it.

Perhaps you need to raise these issues on the courier-users list. I continue to use courier-mta without problems.

Sadly indeed. I used the full Courier suite, including sqwebmail, with a hosting company for about 20 years. The *buntu deb packages stopped being updated 3 or 4 years ago but that server remained in action up until August of this year when I finally swapped it all out for postfix/dovecot. It was a stellar mail server suite remembered with much fondness. RIP Courier.

Sadly enough, this thing is slowly getting broken beyond repair. :-( (Not the package, but the upstream.)

Things like smtpaccess/default (followed by makesmtpaccess) stopped working completely and have no effect whatsoever. This may be either dangerous or annoying, depending on whether you try to ban or whitelist something. None of my whitelisted (i.e., troublesome, but important) fellow mail servers could send mail to my server any more. After a lot of investigation, I found out that the only way to allow them again is to set BOFHCHECKDNS=0 globally (in esmtpd).

I'm sorry to say that, because courier-mta has served me very well for way more than a decade, but ... this thing is terminally broken and most likely dangerous. I'll be migrating away from it ASAP. I'm not sure about the "Possible" part of ASAP yet, but will try my best.

All done, or at least I hope so. Guess not many people use Courier webmail - I use roundcube for mine.

thanks! yet another thing:

systemctl start webmaild

times out (but the daemon process is started), because it's looking for the wrong pid file: it looks for /run/courier/, but the daemon creates /run/courier/ I'm not sure, from where it takes that information, but as I just installed courier-mta, I guess it's the default config. Can you please adopt the PIDFile-option in /usr/lib/systemd/system/webmaild.service ?

cheers, deep_thought

I've added it to the depends list.

The build fails during configure with:

... configure: error: libidn not found ==> ERROR: A failure occurred in build().

On a similar host, where libidn is installed (as a dependency of another package), the build succeeds. I guess, you need to add libidn as a depends=() (or possibly only a makedepends?)

The development version has made it to a stable release.
