After the Discord incident i plan to retire the domain wasteland.zz.de in favour of the old wasteland.rfc822.org which worked since beginning of time. The problem with overblocking of domains may cause harm for my private emails. So i am not advertising it anymore and it may stop working anytime.

Problem with mail backing store has been fixed. The machine is churning through 500K mails received the last 6 days which were kept on hold. This will take another couple hours.

After an excessive abuse of some 3rd party to create fake accounts on Discord the Mail backend got some consistency problems. Repair is under way but may take a bit.

The RAID controller crashed and took some index informations with it. Rebuilding index now which will take some time. No deliveries for a couple of hours

Reorganizing backend storage from Maildir to mdbox to save space and make it possible to backup again. This will most likely take some days to go through. New mails will be immediatly in the new backend, old mails will be migrated.

I updated the hardware for wasteland switched to a much newer distribution with the result that stuff in the IMAP backend store changed. I needed to introduce a different Namespace seperator which made addresses like donald.trump "impossible". I had to introduce some workarounds to actually fix this.

Since the update the service was broken. New mails arrived but were not put into the correct folders. The bug is fixed and old mails are beeing sorted to their correct folder as i write. This may take some hours to complete. While at it i fixed some issues with the mail handling of wasteland.zz.de which was available as web domain but not the mail part.

Thanks to Let's Encrypt Wasteland switched to https and publishes HSTS records so you automatically will be redirected

Still running well. While having a look i found and fixed a little bug where mails with an empty subject could not be opened.

I got pointed to a utf-8 bug in the mailbox overview. Should be fixed now.

wasteland moved to new hardware and new lcoation. While at it the backend changed from maildir and some self written C code to parse to IMAP as the backend and loads of perl.

wasteland moved to new hardware and while moving i found a couple of bugs in the parsing of mails and various other details.

After having a look at the "test" mailbox i found it beeing very long and unusable. I reversed the sort order of the mailbox (newest at the top) and limited the number of messages to 50. Later i will add paging of mailbox output.

Fixed some mail delivery issues with uppercase letters. Now all mailbox names get converted to lowercase everywhere which makes TeSt the same as test. Same applies to the web frontend.

Fixed some URL encoding in the cgis and by the way renamed them to not include endings which can help to guess the language written in.

Also played a bit with preparing an RSS feed from an inbox. Seems to work quite well. Need to fix some more character encoding translation e.g. ISO-8859 to UTF-8 etc.

Fixed some CSS margins and paddings to make mail view a little nicer.
