This documentation is for Dovecot v1.x, see wiki2 for v2.x documentation.

Upgrading Dovecot v1.0 to v1.1

You can use your old dovecot.conf from v1.0. It should work without changes, although a couple of deprecated settings have been removed.

Upgrading from Dovecot versions older than v1.0.rc1 directly to v1.1 is not recommended. v1.0 versions contain some backwards compatibility checks and file format converters that have been removed from v1.1.

If you want to downgrade back after running v1.1, don't downgrade to older versions than v1.0.8 or you'll get crashes. Especially if you're using maildir, the dovecot-uidlist file format has changed and Dovecot versions older than v1.0.2 can't read it.
