Definitely congrats on the 1.0.0 release!
Anyway, I'm having a problem, that may or may not be related to
Dovecot. Specifically, duplicate (and sometimes triplicate) emails are
appearing. These emails have exactly the same queue ID, so its not that
they were sent multiple times. These dup emails do not show up to me ever.
Postfix is being used as the SMTP, and it hands it over to procmail. I
set up procmail's verbose logging feature for that user and on the
duplicate emails that he receives, it shows only ONE write to a file for
that specific subject of email. Tonight / this morning I'll be tracking
down to see if this duplicate for sure happens in IMAP.
Note: Its possible that part of the problem is he leaves two IMAP
clients open at the same time (Netscape I think). I'm going to verify
that with him.
Any ideas? I'm NOT trying to blame Dovecot, I'm just trying to explore
options. Right now its looking fairly bad for Dovecot though....I mean,
what else is there after the mail is delivered to the appropriate place
in the mailbox?
