Hi Markus,

well yes, the new Courier Debian version hit my users badly ... and in the end I decided to downgrade.
Don't get me wrong!
I really very much appreciate somebody taking on the challenge of maintaining a pretty big and important package!

I've been using Debian for almost 20 years and appreciate the more conservative upgrading pace (i.e. in comparison to Ubuntu).
However, the Stretch upgrade was pretty bumpy due to major changes in several important packages.
(PHP 7, PHP7.0-fpm, slapd, tinydns, Samba and a perl syntax check)

Please, if there are still issues with Maildrop (or something else) we need to fully understand the issue and have at least a manual workaround. If I restart a server after the upgrade and then discover issue this means most time a very long night - without any guarantee to solve the problem.

Aber trotz allem, vielen Dank fuer Muehe und Einsatz!
