System: Debian 5.0.4 Lenny
Kernel: custom 220.127.116.11 built from kernel.org source
Mailbox format: mbox
Storage location: /home/$user/mail/ on ext2 fs
Delivery: Postfix 2.5.5 local to /var/mail/$user
As you can see Debian has a backport package of Dovecot 1.2.9 available to Lenny
users, and it appears it is a big jump forward in terms of elapsed time and
Debian ships Dovecot in a collection of 6 packages. I currently only use two,
dovecot-common and dovecot-imapd. I'm guessing it would probably be wise to
shutdown all my current Dovecot processes before starting the upgrade.
Before I do this upgrade I figured I'd ask first to see if there are any gotchas
or explosions awaiting me. Any warnings, hints, pointers anyone? Timo?
