msmtp 1.6.2 is released!
This release fixes a bug that prevented consecutive Bcc headers from being removed properly. It is recommended to upgrade.

msmtp 1.6.1 is released!
This release fixes a problem on platforms where glibc does not support Internationalized Domain Names (IDN).
msmtp 1.6.0 is released!
This is the new stable release. The 1.4.x series is put to rest after nearly 10 years. But do not worry: 1.6.0 is fully compatible with 1.4.x. Noteworthy changes since 1.4.32:
- Support for SOCKS proxies was added. This allows msmtp to be used with Tor.
- GNOME Keyring support now uses libsecret
instead of libgnome-keyring. Consequently,
secret-toolcan be used to manage passwords for msmtp; the obsolete
msmtp-gnome-toolscript is removed.
- Libidn is not required for IDN support anymore on systems where getaddrinfo() supports the AI_IDN flag and the GnuTLS version is >= 3.4.0.
- SSLv3 is disabled.
- From and Date headers are now added to mails if necessary for compatibility, but this new behavior can be disabled.
- The new
remove_bcc_headerscommand replaces the old
- The GSSAPI authentication method is not chosen automatically anymore, you have to request it manually if you want it.
- Configuration file permissions are now only checked if the file actually contains
secrets such as passwords. (If you still store passwords in the configuration
file, consider using a key ring or the the
- The documentation was updated and improved.

- Adding missing From and Date headers can now be disabled if necessary.
- Gnome Keyring passwords can now be managed with
secret-tool(part of libsecret).
- Configuration file security checks are now only performed if the file actually contains passwords (which is not necessary anymore
since we have
passwordevaland key ring support).
msmtp 1.6.0rc1 is released!
This is a release candidate for the next stable version 1.6.0. It contains a few more new features and changes than usual, but is still compatible to versions 1.4.x. The most important changes are:
