hMailServer 5.1, build 338 (Beta)

Post by martin » 2009-03-29 19:26

A new hMailServer 5.1 beta is available:
http://download.hmailserver.com/hMailSe ... 1-B338.exe
  • Added a limit so that hMailServer never processes more than five DKIM-Signature headers in a single email message (to prevent different types of abuse).
  • Administrator: The numbers on the Status page is now refreshed automatically.
  • Installation: The installation program now stops if the user is using an old version of the internal MySQL database and tries to upgrade to v5 before first installing the latest v4-build.
  • Installation: The installation program now stops if a user is using v4 with the internal database, uninstalls hMailServer (and MySQL) and then upgrades to version 5. A user cannot do this, since he will then not have any MySQL installation.
  • Other: OpenSSL has been upgraded to 0.9.8k.
  • Other: Data Directory Synchronizer has been added to the hMailServer group in the Start menu.
  • POP3: When a user logs on, any message which has been marked by deletion by his IMAP client but not been deleted will have it's \Deleted flag removed. This is to prevent issues for users who are using both POP3 and IMAP to access the same mailbox.

I'm seeing this too. CPU utilisation shoots to between 95%-98% and have to kill the hMailAdmin process in Task Manager.

Thanks. Will be fixed in the next build. Which hopefully will be the last beta.

Somehow I feel stupid because I don't get this one. If I upgraded from latest 4 with a MySQL to 5.0 (keeping MySQL), will installation of 5.1 delete MySQL and install MSSQL as well?

I agree it's somewhat ambiguous.

Better put:

Installation: If a user is using v4 with the internal database, uninstalls hMailServer (and MySQL) and then upgrades to version 5, the hMailServer installation program will stop. A user cannot do this, since he will then not have any MySQL installation.

The hMailServer installation program won't uninstall MySQL. What I meant was that if the *user* uninstalls hMailServer/MySQL prior to v5, the installation will stop.
