Bug Fix Advisory exim bug fix update

Advisory: RHBA-2011:0443-2
Type: Bug Fix Advisory
Severity: N/A
Issued on: 2011-07-21
Last updated on: 2011-07-21
Affected Products: Red Hat Enterprise Linux (v. 5 server)
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop (v. 5 client)

Details

Updated exim packages that fix two bugs are now available for Red Hat Enterprise
Linux 5.

Exim is a message transfer agent (MTA) developed at the University of Cambridge
for use on UNIX systems connected to the Internet. It provides a flexible
solution with extensive facilities for checking incoming mail, and can be
installed in place of Sendmail.

This update fixes the following bugs:

* Due to an error in the spec file, dynamic loading of the local_scan() function
was not enabled. This update resolves this issue, and dynamic loading of
local_scan() is now supported as expected. (BZ#567309)

* Prior to this update, some of the Exim tools were installed without a
corresponding manual page. This error has been fixed, and all binaries are now
installed with a manual page. (BZ#612466)

All users of exim should upgrade to these updated packages, which resolve
these issues.
