Guten Tag! (Continuing in English in case to be forwarded into the bug tracker:)

After upgrading systems with exim4-daemon-heavy from wheezy to
jessie we're triggering crashes on setups with the MIME ACL feature
Looking through the git history I find

commit 93cad488cb2c9a31aea345c8910a9f9c5815071c
 Author: Jeremy Harris <jgh146exb at wizmail.org>
 Date:   Fri Aug 29 14:11:50 2014 +0100

     Fix crash in mime acl when a parameter is zero-length

and later commits with descriptions regarding fixes in this area
(and see that there had been changes between the wheezy and jessie
Jessie release is based on version from 2014-08-09...

I have not been able to trigger the bug with a recent exim release.

What do you need to apply necessary fixes to 4.84 and release a
fixed version for jessie/the next point release?

Thanks for your work,
   Lutz Preßler
