Any idea when v1.1 will be released ? The mail_index_sync_update_index
failure is happening about once a day, so we need to get something
done about it.. Hmmm, maybe setting the postfix soft_bounce=yes (as
suggested by Jasper Slits) will be an acceptable workaround for us, as
I don't think these servers should ever need to bounce mail (other
servers in front of them should be handeling that).
