The point is, unless you are personal friends with the person you are 
asking (and if you are personl friends with Timo, and *he* trusts you to 
'know what you are using', then I would say you shouldn't have asked on 
the list), trust is irrelevant.

Trust me... ;)

The difference is, unless you copied/pasted badly, this output can be 
'trusted' as the exact settings that dovecot is actually *using*, as 
opposed to a manually edited version from a .conf file that may or *may* 
*not* be the .conf file that dovecot is reading at startup. What if you 
had done something silly, and dovecot was actually using a different 
.conf file than you thought? It happens...

Anyway, my apologies if you were offended, as none was intended...



Best regards,
