Oh, and if you want to try out some new things in v2.1.rc6, here's the biggest changes so far:

	* Added automatic mountpoint tracking and doveadm mount commands to
	  manage the list. If a mountpoint is unmounted, error handling is
	  done by assuming that the files are only temporarily lost. This is
	  especially helpful if dbox alt storage becomes unmounted.
	* Expire plugin: Only go through users listed by userdb iteration.
	  Delete dict rows for nonexistent users, unless
	* LDA's out-of-quota and Sieve's reject mails now include DSN report
	  instead of MDN report.

	+ LDAP: Allow building passdb/userdb extra fields from multiple LDAP
	  attributes by using %{ldap:attributeName} variables in the template.
	+ doveadm log errors shows the last 1000 warnings and errors since
	  Dovecot was started.
	+ Improved multi-instance support: Track automatically which instances
	  are started up and manage the list with doveadm instance commands.
	  All Dovecot commands now support -i <instance_name> parameter to
	  select the instance (instead of having to use -c <config path>).
	  See instance_name setting.
	+ doveadm mailbox delete: Added -r parameter to delete recursively
	+ doveadm acl: Added "add" and "remove" commands.
	+ Updated to Unicode v6.1
	- mdbox: When saving to alt storage, Dovecot didn't append as much
	  data to m.* files as it could have.
	- dbox: Fixed error handling when saving failed or was aborted
	- IMAP: Using COMPRESS extension may have caused assert-crashes
	- IMAP: THREAD REFS sometimes returned invalid (0) nodes.
	- dsync: Fixed handling non-ASCII characters in mailbox names.
