FreeBSD 11.0 RELEASE Announced

Written by

This was taken from an email from the FreeBSD mailing list:

Dear FreeBSD Community:


Although the FreeBSD 11.0-RELEASE has not yet been officially announced,
many have found images on the Project FTP mirrors.

However, please be aware the final 11.0-RELEASE will be rebuilt and
republished on the Project mirrors as a result of a few last-minute
security fixes we feel are imperative to include in the final release.

FreeBSD users already running 11.0-RELEASE will be given instructions on
how to safely upgrade systems to the 11.0-RELEASE-p1 in the final
announcement email.  Those building from source code can obtain the
latest security updates from the releng/11.0 branch in Subversion:


As the FreeBSD Project strives to provide the best possible product, the
Release Engineering team decided to build an updated release to include
the fixes.  At present, we expect to have the final release available
Wednesday, October 5th.  If you have not yet downloaded 11.0-RELEASE,
please wait for the official release announcement.

Thank you in advance for your patience waiting for 11.0-RELEASE, and of
course for understanding the reasons behind the updated release.

SpamAssassin Information

Written by

This information was copied from youtube:

In the Seventeenth episode of Team Cymru's 'The Who and Why Show', we have the fifth in an occasional series designed to directly assist network administrators, looking at various Open Source Tools that can be used to check and secure systems. Today we talk with Justin Mason, the original author of SpamAssassin, a world class anti-SPAM tool that's fundamentally changed the way we deal with the SPAM problem. These short overviews will give you a good grounding in the basics of the tool, the alternatives and also perhaps enlighten long time users to some of the upcoming features for future versions.

Qmail updates

Written by

Hello all,

Time for an update to qmail. I have been making some minor changes to the guide. The first mistake I made was changing the skel tarball from maildrop to dovecot. This filtering only works on the webmail level. It does not automatically filter spams. I have changed this back to maildrop so automatic filtering will work

I have been making some changes to the guide in regards to TLS. The stock install of qmail does not support TLS. There have been a few changes to the qmail installation to make qmail work. This is a work in progress. I have TLS working on a few different test vm's and I am tweaking the guide so this will work for everyone.

That's it for now. Let me know if you have any questions.

The current document on how to create a queuing server was dated so I updated it as of 10/25/2015. The new guide is located at
