Does this apply to Maildir-format or just mbox? I thought I was playing
it safe by using Maildir and having the index files on the local
drive... That's the impression I got from the current dovecot
documnentation. I just thought it was strange that the problem went away
by just replacing the binary.
Anyway, this is just a temporary setup for a project in a class at my
university, nothing mission critical.
