A few patches I was already using in production since last year and a lot of
minor refactorings.

You can look at JIRA to see a summary "what's new" since 2.2.0 (I added an
issue for most commit for this purpose)

And this is a full log of svn commits (since my first commit on james):

- Fixed a bug compiling this mailet with latest jdks. The bayesian mailet
does extend this class with its own anonymous inner class and the
this.getClass() was returning the name of the anonymous class (e.g:
- Fix for previous commit (update to JAMES-407)
- Applied patch from Anagha Mudigonda (update to JAMES-407)
Improved UnknownCommandHandler, added messageState to the SMTPSession.
- Updated excalibur libraries to final releases (part of JAMES-406)
- Splitted LocalDelivery in 2 mailets. Mantained a wrapper LocalDelivery
that works like before. (#4 and part of #5 in JAMES-414)
I named the storing mailet "ToMultiRepository" because I want to make it
more generic later.
The only difference between the refactored LocalDelivery and the original is
in the Delivered-To header: the old mailet added a Delivered-To with the
address entering the mailet while the new one put in the Delivered-To the
actual mailbox (e.g: After aliasing).
More documentation on new configurations will come later too.
- Hopefully reintroduced backward compatibility (removed in r239947) for
MailetContext.storeMail() (untested) (related to JAMES-392 and JAMES-414).
Also fixed Loader.java indentations.
- Moved the storeMail code from James (MailetContext) to remoteDelivery
(also part of JAMES-392).
1) we don't use MailetContext.storeMail anymore and we can safely remove
that deprecated method.
2) we can now override enableAliases/enableForwarding in the local
LocalDelivery configuration.
- Strip RFC-821 source routing information. JAMES-296
- Use LinkedList for queue handling instead of ArrayList (small optimization
for large expansions)
- Applied patch from Anagha Mudigonda (update to JAMES-407)
Now SMTPhandler implements SMTPSession interface. Remove the inner class
Removed unecessary interfaces from SMTPSession interface
Made changes to SMTPHandlerChain that doenot allow the server to start if
there are no commandHandlers registered or if there are commandHandlers for
mandatory commands : MAIL, RCPT and DATA.
- Moved LocalUsersRepository from smtpserver to core: it's used by more
blocks (part of JAMES-412)
- Reduced the visibility of FetchMail, NNTPServer and POP3Server from
UserStore to the LocalUsersRepository (part #7 of JAMES-412)
Also cleaned unused local variables in FetchMail.
- Reduced the visibility of the SMTPServer from UserStore to the
LocalUsersRepository (a new block) (part of JAMES-412)
- version to 2.3, not 3.0
- Removed the MailStore and changed the dependent object to need Store
instead (part of JAMES-412)
- Removed the inboundSpool concept from the MailStore by promoting the
"inbound" SpoolRepository to a toplevel block (see #3 from JAMES-412)
- Deprecated unused sendmails from MailServer. We provide this methods via
the MailetContext service (JAMES-412)
We could/should also remove this methods instead of deprecate them.
- remove no longer used directory
- Promoted MailetLoader and MatcherLoader to services and created
JamesMailetLoader, JamesMatcherLoader block components (point 4 of
- Removed unused dependecies from the current assembly/xinfo: first task of
- Fix indentation spaces: a previous commit contained tabs.
- We always cast this Mail to MailImpl: I just moved the cast to the first
- Make use of ContainerUtil methods. Less code, better logging/checks (e.g:
configure does check for null and run exceptions), and make it simpler to
find out where we depend on Avalon dependencies propagation.
- First version of the "James inprotocol handling framework" (JAMES-407)
from Anagha Mudigonda.
- 8BITMIME support while delivering. Added conversion to 7bit when the
transport is not sun javamail and when the remote host does not support
8bitmime (JAMES-52).
Also re-activated by default the EHLO salutation: with HELO 8bitmime is not
available. (JAMES-410)
- Reverted the kernel changes introduced while fixing JAMES-406.
We don't want to enable MX4J by default. Also added a comment for the
- Switched UsersLDAPRepository from Component to Service. Probably Noel
missed this doing the merge. We now no longer have
Component/ComponentManager references in our codebase.
- ResettableFileInputStream was present twice in the codebase. And it is
identical. Just removed the one from filepair and changed the references to
the one in util.io
- Expanded package.* imports to have a better view of dependencies, removed
unused imports in involved files, updated copyright year in involved files.
- Updated phoenix and james to the latest avalon-framework (4.3RC2), updated
all of the cornerstone/excalibur libraries and removed deprecated ones
(excalibur-io - JAMES-408). Also removed xml handling libraries (JAMES-409 -
included from jdk1.4+ no more used now that we don't need jdk1.3) (this is a
part of the JAMES-406 task)
- Phoenix failed to start if installed under a "bin" directory (JAMES-250).
Thanks to Paul Gallagher for pointing this out. This fix is for phoenix and
not James but we now host our phoenix distro.
- Moved SMIMESign and its Abstract to the new smime subpackages (JAMES-400).
Also updated ASF copyright to 2005 and cleaned imports.
- The delivery-status created by DSNBounce was not rfc1894 compliant (it
ab-used rfc822 container) (JAMES-378).
Changed it to text-plain (it is not fully compliant but most compliant than
Added support for only headers original message attachment (heads) and
removed inner DSNStatus (the same class was already in the util.dsn package)
- Sample configuration for Additional "received for" headers to Fetchmail
- Added support for Additional "received for" headers to Fetchmail
- Upgraded Bouncycastle to 129 and java 1.4+ only (no more java 1.3
compatible) (JAMES-399)
Added SMIME mailets for signature verification and message decrypt
(JAMES-398 / JAMES-257)
Removed bc jce provider from the repository: to use SMIME the user will need
to download bcprov from the bouncycastle website
- Upgraded Bouncycastle to 129 and java 1.4+ only (no more java 1.3
compatible) (JAMES-399)
Added SMIME mailets for signature verification and message decrypt
(JAMES-398 / JAMES-257)
Removed bc jce provider from the repository: to use SMIME the user will need
to download bcprov from the bouncycastle website
- Don't keep all mailboxes in-memory forever (JAMES-138).
Changed the HashMap in ReferenceMap.
Also cleaned imports, unused variables, unnecessary classcasts, unused
fields in the 2 involved files.
- DSNBounce often reported the dsn Status 5.5.0 incorrectly. Added a
conversion table for SMTP code to DSN code when SMTP code is available.
- Fix for readUserFromResultSet.  Lines 49-50 in the
DefaultUsersJdbcRepository.java are reversed for the getString values
(JAMES-329). Thanx to Vaughan Hines for pointing to this. 
I also added a comment to the class to easily remember that the class is
unused and we could remove it when needed.
- Added hsqldb sample configuration block to config.xml (JAMES-395).
I added it to provide an alternative to the "bundled" derby.
- Correctly report missing sqlDef in sqlResources (JAMES-295).
Thanks to Mark Daring for reporting this!
- Changed the column order for the primary key of SpoolRepository
createTable (JAMES-396).
If you use a db different from mysql (I tested it) and db2 (it was already
correct) you should check the performance with the altered key
and report back to JIRA the results.
- Added hsqldb support in sqlResources.xml (JAMES-395)
I added a new configuration because current "hypersonic" configuration
matched a different product id.
- DSNBounce configured by default (JAMES-357)

- Upgrade to dnsjava 2.0.0 (JAMES-388)
Add derby support (JAMES-390)
Invert "precompilation" logic for jdbc3 (JAMES-389)
Move "candidates" libraries to the official lib / remove unused libraries
Also updated some old build.xml jar reference and removed unused rows from
include.properties (e.g: xerces, commons-net)
- 8BITMIME announce support (see also JAMES-52).
SMTPHandler cleaning: unused variable removed.
- added Locale.US to toUpperCase and toLowerCase (JAMES-323).
Cleaning of imports, unused variables, unnecessary class casts in the 4
involved files.
- MimeMessageWrapper: fix for long subjects (JAMES-356). Imports
- "return" inside a finally block make no much sense: better to move it
- removed "enum" for jdk1.5 compatibility (JAMES-237). Imports cleaned in
MessageProcessor and UsersLDAPRepository.
