Hello,

I came to get information about the upgrade from Debian Squeeze to Wheezy.
Is that people have tested?
Have you encountered any problems?
Are there specific to operate normally or actions?

Thank you for your feedback.

Re: Debian upgrade from Squeeze to Wheezy

The most important thing is, Debian 6 (Squeeze) provides Dovecot-1.2, Debian 7 (Wheezy) provides Dovecot-2, but Dovecot-2 config file changes a lot. That means, your current Dovecot config file will break Dovecot service after upgrading to Debian 7, so you must sync Dovecot config file immediately after you upgrade Debian 6 to 7 with apt-get (or similar tools).

Here's a simple way you can get a working config file for Dovecot-2, i suggest you try it with a virtual machine for testing first.
