Ipfstatusmail is not adapted for new changes

Hi Guys.

Ipfstatusmail is not adapted for new changes of core 148 and Location Block feature. Apparently it was adapted or developed for the Maxmind GeoIP. Now, when disappearing, the Ipfmailstatus no longer works correctly.

It’s a shame.

Is there foresight to implement it in IPFire (I think I was thinking of implementing it in the future)?. It seems to me that it is a very interesting feature.

I’m going to have a look at the necessary changes. I’ve got a newer version running on one of my machines, but I still need to get the location changes sorted.

Unfortunately my to to do list seems to be getting longer and longer, but hopefully I can update the GitHub version with the minimal location changes in the next week or so.

Thank you very much Tim for your effort.

Wasn’t it thought that in the future to implement it as an Addon within IPFire?

See what he said @bonnietwin in another thread:

After ipfstatusmail has been updated TimF should put a patch together and submit it to the IPFire development mailing list for consideration.
This was recently done by Marcel Follert with socat, a command line tool for communicating with unix sockets and that addon is now in Core Update 149.

Do you plan to do it?

That is the intention, however it takes time for the main developers to review the code, so it’s not going to happen in the short term.

I’ve now pushed a new version to github which works with the new location database. You should be able to install it over the top of the old version.
