iRedMail-0.8.6 works on several new Linux/BSD distribution releases
Ubuntu 13.10 (saucy). NOTE: phpLDAPadmin is not available for OpenLDAP backend because it cannot be installed at all.
OpenBSD 5.4, plus Awstats support.
iRedMail-0.8.6 drops support for below Linux/BSD distribution releases
Debian 6 (squeeze). Please use Debian 7 (wheezy) instead.
OpenBSD 5.3. Please use OpenBSD 5.4 (released on 2013-11-01) instead.
iRedMail-0.8.6 drops support for below Linux distributions (we describe why we drop them at the bottom)
Better support for installing iRedMail with remote MySQL server. Reference: http://www.iredmail.org/wiki/index.php? … sql.server
Enable 'innodb_file_per_table' (per-table tablespaces) in MySQL by default, this parameter avoids large ibdata files (.idb). Reference: http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.5/en/ … paces.html
Enable Opportunistic TLS support in Postfix when sending mail to remote SMTP server (smtp_tls_security_level=may). Thanks kotso <admin _at_ co.ge> and vlastikcz for the report.
Switch from Policyd-1.8 to Cluebringer on all Linux/BSD distributions. NOTE: The latest iRedAdmin-Pro supports Cluebringer management, includes white/black/greylisting, per-domain and per-user throttling.
Add parameter ‘inet6 => 0' in Amavisd ldap settings to avoid ldap connection error. NOTE: it’s not necessary to add this on running iRedMail server.
Not detect backupmx status in SQL/LDAP query for domain transport.
Not setup cron job to cleanup expired entries in Cluebringer database.
iRedAPD -> 1.4.2. Fixed a bug in plugin sql_user_restrictions.py.
iRedAdmin -> 0.3. Use python source file as config file.
Roundcube webmail -> 0.9.5
phpMyAdmin -> 4.0.10
Why drop support for Gentoo and openSUSE
Just few users chose them, so we decided to drop it to reduce our workload and bring you better support for other supported Linux/BSD distributions.
openSUSE encourages users to manage system with YaST, that’s fine, and YaST is great. The problem is openSUSE splits software config files into multiple files, and adds many addition files/parameters to make it work with YaST, for example, /etc/sysconfig/*, /etc/apache2/. It’s hard to, and i’m tired to manage config files with command line on openSUSE. It requires too many small hacks to make softwares (required by iRedMail) work like on other Linux distributions, especially Postfix. I believe /etc/init.d/postfix and /usr/sbin/config.postfix are over-designed, they SUCK. Please don’t do too much for your users.
