Hi all, Timo,

Sorry if I'm being a bit late, I could only start trying Dovecot 2 this 

I'm building on Solaris 10, I only have two small remarks:

   - ./configure allows to define the location of configuration. In 
v1.2, it's set fully by this parameter (ie, I add 
--sysconfdir=/etc/opt/dovecot, and it uses that directory). In v2.0, 
"/dovecot" is appended to the value given. Could it be the default, but 
possible to override it? I'd like to be able to specify both 
/etc/opt/dovecot and /etc/opt/dovecot-rc (or -testing or such) when 
trying a new version alongside the old one.

   - GNU make is now needed to build, Solaris make fails on some of the 
syntax. Since GNU make is delivered, not a big deal, just I tho9ught it 
could be documented.

Well, those are only small details, it won't prevent me from trying it 
fully this week.
