mpop 1.4.4 is released

2019-04-24

This version adds support for the OAUTHBEARER authentication method and fixes a few minor bugs.

Support for OAUTHBEARER / XOAUTH2

2019-04-06

The git repository contains new support for the OAUTHBEARER authentication method, formerly known as XOAUTH2, a method pushed mainly by Google.
This means mpop can now use an OAuth2 token for authentication by setting auth oauthbearer in the configuration file. The token is typically passed to mpop via the passwordeval command since it changes regularly.
However, mpop does not provide a way to generate such a token. This depends on your mail provider.
Since I do not use this method myself, it would be great if you could test this feature and maybe document how to generate the necessary token for your mail provider, so that I can add examples to the documentation.
Looking forward to your feedback!

Source code moved

2019-02-19

The source code moved to git.marlam.de, see the updated download instructions.
The reason is that gitlab vanished from Debian stable and there is no working upgrade path to the version in Debian backports. Sorry for the inconvenience.

mpop 1.4.3 is released

2019-02-11

This version fixes a security problem that affects version 1.4.2 (older versions are not affected): when the new default value system for tls_trust_file is used, the result of certificate verification was not properly checked.

Update 2019-02-14: The same problem in msmtp has been assigned CVE-2019-8337. This is the patch that fixes it (included in version 1.4.3).

mpop 1.4.2 is released

2019-01-12

This version simplifies configuration:

Additionally, there are several code cleanups and updates, and updated translations by the Translation Project. Many thanks to the translators!

mpop 1.4.1 is released

2018-12-08

This version fixes a bug that broke TLS 1.3 support.
Furthermore, translations are now handled by the Translation Project, and a new Ukrainian translation is already included in this release. Many thanks to the translators!

If you do not want to upgrade to the 1.4 series yet but you need TLS 1.3 support, you can apply this patch to mpop version 1.2.8 or 1.0.29.

mpop 1.4.0 is released

2018-09-04

This is the first release of the new stable release series. Noteworthy changes since 1.2.8:

mpop 1.4.0rc1 is released

2018-08-20

This is a release candidate for the upcoming 1.4.x stable release series. The following changes were made:

Using mpop with OpenSSL is discouraged, please use GnuTLS

2018-08-19

It is recommended to use mpop with GnuTLS instead of OpenSSL. The upcoming version of mpop will not use OpenSSL automatically anymore, and if you choose it manually, you will get a warning.

The reasons for this are listed in this news entry for msmtp (mpop and msmtp use the same TLS code).
