Updated dovecot packages that fix one bug are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
Dovecot is an IMAP server for Linux and other UNIX-like systems, primarily written with security in mind. It also contains a small POP3 server. It supports e-mail in either the maildir or mbox format. The SQL drivers and authentication plug-ins are provided as sub-packages.
Because of a bug in dovecot's SSL parameters generator, installation of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 with FIPS mode enabled could become unresponsive when installing the dovecot package. This problem has been fixed and the installation now completes successfully in the described scenario.
Users of dovecot are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix this bug.
