Sendmail Open Source MTA
Sendmail, Inc., and the Sendmail Consortium announce the availability
of sendmail 8.14.7. This version fixes the handling of NUL characters
('\0') in mail bodies by the MIME conversion functions, which are
used even if no explicit conversion is happening, e.g., if
MaxMimeHeaderLength is not zero, as well as some other problems.
A complete list of changes can be found in the release notes (see

corresponding sig file. The PGP signature was created using

This listing shows the version of the sendmail binary, the version
of the sendmail configuration files, the date of release, and a
summary of the changes in that release.
Drop support for IPv4-mapped IPv6 addresses to prevent the MTA
from using a mapped address over a legitimate IPv6 address
and to enforce the proper semantics over the IPv6
connection. Problem noted by Ulrich Sporlein.
Fix a regression introduced in 8.14.6: the wrong list of
macros was sent to a milter in the EHLO stage.
Problem found by Fabrice Bellet, reported via RedHat
Fix handling of ORCPT parameter for DSNs: xtext decoding
was not performed and a wrong syntax check was applied
to the "addr-type" field. Problem noted by Dan Lukes
Fix handling of NUL characters in the MIME conversion functions
so that message bodies containing them will be sent
on properly. Note: this usually also affects mails
that are not converted as those functions are used
for other purposes too. Problem noted by Elchonon
Edelson of Lockheed Martin.
Do not perform "duplicate" elimination of recipients if they
resolve to the error mailer using a temporary failure
(4xy) via ruleset 0. Problem noted by Akira Takahashi
CONTRIB: Updated version of etrn.pl script from John Beck
Unlike gcc, clang doesn't apply full prototypes to K&R
