Hi Aki,

thank your for responding that fast.

Ok, thus at least your answer saves me hours of debugging. We upgraded
old Ubuntu Boxes (14.04/LTS) to 16.04 to get around some Dovecot
limitations/problems. And now we got new ones :(

We did the upgrade to avoid self-built binaries and use the distro
packages. Probably we're out of luck.

Does the 2.2.22 HTTP API suffer from the same bug with user passing?
Is the HTTP API useable in a Director/Backend configuration?

Our setup is about

    [ mx ] ---> dovecot-protocol ---> [ director ] ----> [ backend ]
                                                   `---> [ backend ]
                                                     `-> [ backend ]

The bug w/ user passing is in the backend? Or already in the directors?
