Hello Dovecot users,
Pigeonhole development has slowed down significantly in the last few
months due to the fact that I got swamped in work.
The plan is now to move active development of Pigeonhole to Dovecot
v2.0, meaning that this will be the last release for v1.2 that contains
significant development changes and new features. However, if a certain
new feature is simple enough and there is a demand for it, I may
backport it from v2.0 and release it along with any bugfixes that may
The main thing that this new release adds is full support for the
spamtest, spamtestplus and virustest extensions. These extensions
implement a uniform means of testing the content spam/virus status
headers in mail messages:
Not many people have tested these new features yet and therefore these
are currently considered experimental. Test these thoroughly before you
start using them! Documentation is available in doc/spamtest-virustest.txt
Changelog Sieve v0.1.16:
* Finished implementation of spamtest, spamtestplus and virustest
extensions. These are not enabled by default and need to be
activated with the sieve_extensions setting. Documentation available
+ Vacation extension: the from address of the generated reply is now
by default equal to whatever known recipient alias matched the
headers of the message. If it is one of the aliases specified with
:addresses, it is used in stead of the envelope recipient address
that was used before.
+ Restructured and optimized the lexical scanner.
+ Added --with-docs configure option to allow disabling installation
- Accidentally omitted 'extern' in two declarations of global
variables in header files, causing compile failures on certain
- Deprecated imapflags extension: fixed implicit assignment of flags.
Turns out this never really worked, but the effect of this bug was
obscured by the removeflag bug fixed in the previous release.
- Fixed various memset argument mixups in enotify extension. This
caused warnings on certain systems, but luckily no adverse effects
The releases are available as follows:

testing the new releases and don't hesitate to notify me when there are
