Re: mail/dovecot removed

Thanks for your explanations.

Sorry, I wasn't aware of that.

I last built it on 8.1_STABLE from 2019Q2.

My reasons for sticking with 1.2 are:
1. It just works.
2. I couldn't come up with an easy scheme that allows me to realistically 
   test a 2.x setup for a limited set of users (including the ability to 
   revert them to 1.2 at any time) while running the 1.2 setup for the bulk 
   of users, the problem being the format of index files has changed.
   Normally, I would set up a new installation in parallel and ask my 
   colleagues to use that server instead of, but in 
   case only one of them fails to switch only one of their gadgets to use 
   the new IMAP, we may run into serious problems like index corruption or 
   mails lost due to synchronisation problems.
   I could use a toy user for the tests, but that would fail to test the 
   Real World.
   Plus I would need to find a way to test the 2.x LDA uncluding Sieve.
