My mail server is dying. I've been putting off doing something about it because I really want to redesign mail handling. I even have the new machines ready and I've been playing with them. They are nearly ready for production. I've been waiting on dbmail. There have been been a few pernicious bugs in dbmail or in the libraries used by dbmail that out smarted every attempt at fix them.

Finally, it seemed that the most worrisome issues were dealt with. At least, the one's I cared about. The remaining issues were with parts of dbmail I will not be using. So, time to go!

Yesterday, at 3pm, I downloaded version 3.1.10 which was released on January 22nd. I applied several important patches. Then I fussed with it to get it to compile including getting a few libraries I didn't have (lost at an distribution upgrade). After a couple of hours, I was ready to test.

This morning, I was looking through my mailing lists mail and to my surprise I see 3.1.11 has been released. Sometimes a stitch in time means duplicating work. :)
