I just upgraded my installation and I can read my mail so I guess it
works :-)
One thing that bit me and that is not mentioned in the upgrade docs is
that the option "default_mail_env" was renamed to "mail_location".

Another thing is that the default values for login_max_processes_count
and max_mail_processes seem to be larger than what a default NetBSD
installation supports. I got this warning message:
