User Rating:      How can I rate this item?
Posted by Benjamin D. Thomas   
Mandrake A problem exists in how the Kolab Server transports emails bigger than 8KB in size and if a dot (".") character exists in the wrong place. If these conditions are met, kolabfilter will double this dot and a modified email will be delivered, which could lead to broken clear-text signatures or broken attachments. The updated packages have been patched to correct these problems.
