    Postfix legacy releases 2.6.6, 2.5.10 and 2.4.14 contain fixes that
    were already included with Postfix 2.7 (stable release) and Postfix
    2.8 (experimental release).

    NOTE: Postfix 2.3 is no longer updated.

    Defects fixed with Postfix 2.6.6 only (more in the next section):

    - "postmulti -p command" did not skip disabled instances.

    - In the multi_instance_wrapper parameter, the expansion of
    $command_directory and $daemon_directory was broken.

    - The address_verify_poll_count parameter value was not made
    stress-dependent by default. This defeated the purpose of making
    other settings stress-dependent by default with Postfix 2.6.

    Defects fixed with Postfix 2.6.6, 2.5.10, 2.4.14:

    - Milter applications would hang up after receiving an unexpected
    SMFIC_HEADER (mail header) command. This problem happened with
    Milters that (legitimately) do not send replies for SMFIC_RCPT
    (recipient address) or SMFIC_DATA (start of message) commands.

    - Core dump while an printing error message for a malformed %<letter>
    sequence in LDAP, MySQL or PostgreSQL lookup table configuration.

    - Mail with zero recipients was forever stuck in the queue. This
    happened when "postsuper -r" was run after all the recipients of
    a message were delivered (or bounced), but before the message was
    deleted from the queue.

    - With hostnames such as 1-2-3-4, the valid_hostname() fuction did
    not recognize the '-' as a non-numeric character, causing a
    legitimate name to be rejected as "invalid".

    - The VRFY command did not accept a mailbox address inside <>.
