[An on-line version of this announcement will be available at http://www.postfix.org/announcements/postfix-2.9.2.html]
Postfix stable release 2.9.2, and legacy releases 2.8.10, 2.7.9, 2.6.15 are available. They contains workarounds that are already part of Postfix 2.10.
These releases add support to turn off the TLSv1.1 and TLSv1.2 protocols. Introduced with OpenSSL version 1.0.1, these protocols are known to cause inter-operability problems, for example with some hotmail services.
The radical workaround is to temporarily turn off problematic protocols globally:
However, it may be better to temporarily turn off problematic protocols for broken sites only:/etc/postfix/main.cf: smtp_tls_protocols = !SSLv2, !TLSv1.1, !TLSv1.2 smtp_tls_mandatory_protocols = !SSLv2, !TLSv1.1, !TLSv1.2 smtpd_tls_protocols = !SSLv2, !TLSv1.1, !TLSv1.2 smtpd_tls_mandatory_protocols = !SSLv2, !TLSv1.1, !TLSv1.2
/etc/postfix/main.cf: smtp_tls_policy_maps = hash:/etc/postfix/tls_policy /etc/postfix/tls_policy: example.com may protocols=!SSLv2:!TLSv1.1:!TLSv1.2
Note the use of ":" instead of comma or space. Also, note that there is NO space around the "=" in "protocols=".
The smtp_tls_policy_maps lookup key must match the "next-hop" destination that is given to the Postfix SMTP client. If you override the next-hop destination with transport_maps, relayhost, sender_dependent_relayhost_maps, or otherwise, you need to specify the same destination for the smtp_tls_policy_maps lookup key.
