BTW I need to add that even with -v -D there were no complaints from
dovecot altmove, and nothing untoward in /var/log/maillog. I also forgot
to specify that I'm running on Centos6.2, all updates applied, package
was built with a combo of the spec file from ATRPMs and the latest
I previously had the ATRPMS 2.1.1 package installed, same issue.
Please feel free to tell me if I'm doing something wrong (ie something
has changed between 2.0 and 2.1 re ALT: storage.
