Mail reception failed after ports update

It turned out to be due to that Perl got updated and by default perl disables SUIDPERL. I tried several things to activate it like configuring /etc/make.conf but it didn’t help.

This is how I solved it:

make config

And chech SUIDPERL and then make

make showconfig

to make sure it is set.

To build and reinstall do:

make deinstall

make reinstall

Turned out the above even didn’t help, though found this which finally solved it. Not so easy when there is a bug in the code!!

It’s been reported officially too.
