Announcement ID:    SUSE-OU-2014:0566-1
Rating:             low
References:         #864912 #874744 #874746 
Affected Products:
                    SUSE Linux Enterprise Security Module 11 SP3

   An update that has three optional fixes can now be


   This update provides an optional Postfix Mail Server
   package built against  OpenSSL 1.0 that allows the use of
   TLS 1.2 for both sending and receiving  e-mails.

   The set of RPMs is named "postfix-openssl1" (and

   The package is in the same source level as the regular
   "postfix" from SUSE  Linux Enterprise and consequently uses
   and supports the same configuration  parameters.

   Postfix-openssl1 requires the usage of OpenSSL1.0-enabled
   versions of  openldap2 and cyrus-sasl libraries.

   If other libraries are used by your Postfix installation
   that indirectly  require OpenSSL 0.9.x, this setup might
   not always work. It is strongly  recommended to do
   integration tests before deploying the packages in a
   production environment.

   To switch from Postfix with OpenSSL 0.9.x to OpenSSL 1.0:

   * Backup the Postfix configuration files.
   * Run: "zypper in postfix-openssl1" o Zypper will
   report conflicts with postfix (and potentially with
   -mysql, -postgresql and -doc sub-packages). o
   As conflict resolution chose to migrate to postfix-openssl1
   flavoured packages and uninstall the old postfix.
   * Restore the configuration files (they have also been
   saved as .rpmsave files).
   * Start postfix and verify that all features work.


   Update for an optional TLS 1.2 enabled Postfix.
