Slackware and Dovecot


Hi

I am going to use Dovecot for imap and pop3 instead of the default application on Slackware.
Do anybody use it on his production servers (with Slackware)?
What is your experience with it?
What do you think about this combination?

I used on my server for a while. Works very good and is more advanced that the stock pop3ad especially if you want/need ssl and a bit more control over users.

I'm using docevot in production since version 1.2 in conjunction with qmail/vpopmail and I'm fine with it. It's secure, easy to install and well documented. The community is alive and the support is good. In addition, you can easily manage sieve rules to filter your emails if you install dovecot/pigeonhole.

I recently wrote a guide for slackware here http://notes.sagredo.eu/node/28, you may be interested to take a look to it.

Your questions are vague, so my response will be vague. Both Dovecot and Slackware are well suited for production use. I've deployed both in production environments with positive results.

I've been using dovecot on Slack since Slackware 12.0 and never had an issue with it.

I was using slackbuilds.org for building dovecot. There are different versions available. dovecot-2.0.8 for Slackware 13.1 and 2.0.12 for Slackware 13.37.
It is safe to use the latest version of it - dovecot-2.0.15?

You probably _should_ use the latest (minor) version if it has security fixes. Check the 2.0.12 to 2.0.15 changelogs to see what's new.

To answer your original question: I administer a Slackware64 13.0 server with Dovecot for pop3/imap + ssl and it has run flawlessly.
