I’m disowning this package since I no longer use it after discovering that Dovecot supports having just username:password in the passwd table, which OpenSMTPD supports with the standard file: driver, rendering table-passwd useless.

Updated package but did not add an epoch, so you have to manually force the update.

You are right, apparently only filters are unsupported, other extras should still work. And as the matter of fact they do. I wanted to reproduce the issue to discuss it with the OpenSMTPD dev, but after updating to the latest extra version (201703132115), I had no issue in fact. So you should just update this package I think.

Just noticed and by association - so hopefully a fix will be along shortly! At that point, I'll retry the latest snapshot to see if this PKGBUILD should be updated.

Thanks ArchangeGabriel

I was under the impression it was only the filters that were considered experimental and wholly unsupported, but as being as there is no longer a link to -extras on the opensmtpd website I guess it really is the whole lot.

I've tried all available versions, but as expected none work. I haven't got time to try and patch anything right now.

Addendum: Also tried the latest commit on github with no success.

I’ve restored your comment, you can unpin it if you want.

Regarding -extras, they are currently unsupported upstream, that’s all there is to it. We have to figure out if some newer extras version works or not. I’ll try them, but I don’t have time for this currently.

This does NOT work with the current version of OpenSMTPd. If you rely on table-passwd (or any other part of opensmtpd-extras) I suggest you do not upgrade smtpd at this time.

The latest stable release of opensmtpd-extras was a very long time ago, and the latest snapshot was also over a year ago. I'm not sure what the current official position is on extras, but am making enquiries. I suspect work is going on behind the scenes, alongside work on the filters system.

Sorry everyone, I was a bit behind on updates and only just hit this problem. Also need to update my email address here - didn't realise I still have it set to the now dead service. I'm on the case.

there's 201703132115 version that has the new api, but it segfaults for me on smtp login

greencopper: Thanks for advertising this issue. Actually the extras version used here is a bit outdated, did anyone try with one of the three more recent ones? (despite parchd pinned message) I’ll take a look this WE else.

This package is not working with the latest OpenSMTPD version in Arch:

Thanks for providing this package!

parchd commented on 2016-09-22 08:14 (UTC)

I've submitted this package for two reasons: 1) I'm probably not the only one who only wants this component of opensmtpd-extras, and although it is easy to edit the PKGBUILD to remove other things this is even easier 2) More importantly, this is the latest snapshot version that is compatible with current stable smtpd (6.0.*) - the current released version of opensmtpd-extras is quite old and table-passwd has been overhauled since it was released.
