i have a few questions

i just setted up a test server for dovecot and other stuff
and used


but i am not really sure whats the exact meaning of "patched" here

also is there more docs on

"lib-sasl library for client side SASL support."

and lemonade submission stuff ( perhaps this is what patched means )

is there some lemonade client for testing oder some telnet procedure
which may used for testing lemonade stuff

Best Regards
