Finale version of yaffas 1.4.0

Kategorie: Nachrichten

We are happy to announce the immediate availability of the final version of yaffas-1.4.0.

The highlights include Debian 7 (wheezy) support, Zarafa 7.1.10 and a re-worked mail alias management system. The latter allows for creation of aliases to arbitrary target mail addresses and allows for direct delivery to public folders.

Compared to the beta version, there were only two changes: ZCP has been updated to 7.1.10 and a small bug in the setup wizard has been fixed.


Other notable improvements and bug fixes since the last stable version:

  • Fresh SSL certificates are now generated upon first installation.
    Important: If you have never regenerated certificates or uploaded your own certificates, please do so now. Otherwise the confidentiality of the SSL connections cannot be guaranteed! (see documentation, chapter 2.2 Certificate / Key Management).
  • A critical postfix problem on Ubuntu systems has been worked around (this only affected systems which used SSL-secured LDAP such as Active Directory environments)
  • Setting up fetchmail multidrop is now possible in the UI.
  • Permitting external LDAP access to the yaffas server has been fixed to work on Debian-based systems again.
  • Specifying multiple DNS servers in the network configuration works now.
  • Mail > Security: The date of the last successful clamav signature update is now displayed.
  • Zarafa > Subscriptions: under certain circumstances, an unwanted error message could have been shown, which has now been silenced.
  • Amavis' spam/virus quarantine has now been disabled as there are currently no tools to administer it through the UI.
  • The limit for the maximum mail size can now be set to 0 (unlimited).
  • Smarthosts on ports other than 25 can now be specified.
  • Errors which happen during upload of certificates or restoration of previously saved configurations are now properly displayed to the user in all circumstances.
  • Adding mail domains with single-char components (such as a.bitbone.de) is now possible.
  • Usability and design have been further improved in several areas.


A list of all fixed tickets can be found in our bug tracker.

More information can be found in the documentation, which has also been revised both graphically and content-wise.

Existing installations can be upgraded just by running "apt-get update && apt-get upgrade" on Debian/Ubuntu-based systems or "yum upgrade" on RHEL-based systems.

New installs should be set up according to the official docs at http://doc.yaffas.org/

If you encounter any dependency problems on RHEL-based systems, please refer to the relevant documentation chapter regarding clamav and amavisd.

Thanks to all the beta testers! Please keep in mind to change your repository URL back to the normal address (please refer to the "installation" step in the docs for that).
