Hi. Simple patch which helped me.

May be this is not the exact changes that it should be done. But dbmail-3.2.3-r2 builds with gcc-10.1 and works fine for me.
Comment 9 Chris Mayo 2020-06-06 15:41:29 UTC
No C expert here but I think server.c is the file in which tls_context is initialised and it is referenced in dm_tls.c.

At run time:

.libs/libdbmail_la-dm_tls.o:(.bss+0x0): multiple definition of `tls_context';
.libs/libdbmail_la-server.o:(.bss+0x40): first defined here
