Release Notes: Documentation changes; this release cannot run natively on Windows. Use Cygwin if you must run on a Windows platform. Some Windows-specific code has been removed.
Release Notes: Previously, for safety, getmail would re-retrieve messages after a session that encountered errors. However, getmail had enough information to safely remember those messages that had been successfully delivered. This behavior has been changed to avoid delivering duplicate messages where it isn't necessary. In output/log files, getmailrc files are now specified only by filename, instead of by complete paths. This will prevent some overly-long output lines. Windows versions of functions to lock/unlock files were added, so mbox delivery can be used on Windows.
Release Notes: Previously, if an SSL POP3 or IMAP server abruptly closed the connection before getmail could finish logging in, getmail would exit instead of proceeding to the next configured mail account. This was fixed. Duplicate Return-Path: header fields were eliminated.
Release Notes: Some IMAP errors would cause getmail to raise an exception instead of gracefully proceeding with the next configured mail account.
Release Notes: This release adds a BrokenUIDLPOP3Retriever class to support servers that do not implement the UIDL command, or that fail to uniquely identify messages using it.
Release Notes: This release adds new error messages and documentation for POP3 servers that cannot uniquely identify messages in a mailbox.
Release Notes: A typo in getmailcore/exceptions.py has been fixed that would raise a NameError exception in certain rare cases.
Release Notes: One type of filter error would cause getmail to skip to the next configured mail account, rather than simply proceeding to the next message from the same account. This has been fixed. There documentation updates.
Release Notes: Documentation updates were made. The getmailrc examples file was updated. The error message shown when a user insecurely tries to deliver mail as GID 0 was clarified.
Release Notes: This release changes the real as well as the effective uid/gid in child delivery processes and handles a corrupted oldmail file better.
