I have updated Exim, the Mail Transfer Agent, to exim-4.24-1.
It is the first stable release since the current 4.22.

- The list of Exim changes appears in
  and in /usr/share/doc/exim-4.24/NewStuff

- Exim can now use PAM to authenticate users presenting their Windows names 
  and passwords.

 Old gdbm databases are incompatible with the gdbm software for Cygwin 1.5.
 Exim handles the transition gracefully (making an entry in its log). 
 However if you revert to an Exim release earlier than 4.22, it will be
 necessary to delete all files in /var/spool/exim/db. This causes no 
 permanent loss of data.

To update your installation, click on the "Install Cygwin now" link on
the http://www.cygwin.com web page.  This downloads setup.exe
to your system.  Then run setup and answer all of the questions.
Exim is in the Mail category.

If you have questions or comments, please send them to the Cygwin
mailing list: cygwin@cygwin.com .
