Postfix, a mail server that started life at IBM research as an alternative to the widely-used Sendmail program, is now at version 2.9.5.

Highlights of Postfix 2.9.5:

• A false error (missing "]" character) which occurred when a reject_{rhs,dns}bl_* or permit_{rhs,dns}wl_* reply pattern started with "[", has been fixed;
• The postscreen_access_list feature failed to ignore case in the first character of a command (e.g., permit, reject, etc.);
• Strip the datalink suffix (e.g., %eth0) from IPv6 addresses returned by the system getaddrinfo() routine;
• To eliminate the possibility of collisions with connection cache lookup keys, the Postfix LDAP client now computes those lookup keys by joining the number-valued connection properties with ASCII null;
• A memory leak which happed during one-time TLS library initialization has been fixed.
