By default Raspbian Stretch Lite comes with Dovecot 2.2.27 which does not support BLF-CRYPT password scheme. Does anybody know if there is a repository with Dovecot 2.3 for Raspbian Stretch Lite? Thank you in advance!

    dovecot 2.3.4 is present in the raspbian repository - I'm not sure how one would install it though - perhaps adding buster and do some pinning etc – Jaromanda X Feb 9 at 1:01
  • @Jaromanda X, could you please post a URI for the repository you are referring to? I only see 2.2.27 in this one: archive.raspbian.org/raspbian/dists/stretch/main/binary-armhf – Y2i Feb 9 at 5:08

    If you don't want to do @JaromandaX's update to add the Buster repo then you could pull all the 2.3 debs from mirrordirector.raspbian.org/raspbian/pool/main/d/dovecot – Dougie Feb 9 at 8:32

    Of course, the question was if there is a repository with Dovecot 2.3 for Raspbian Stretch Lite? - to which the answer is, there isn't one – Jaromanda X Feb 9 at 8:59

    You'll have to wait for Buster. Or do the /etc/apt/sources.list and /etc/apt/preferences.d stuff as documented at wiki.debian.org/AptPreferences – Dougie Feb 10 at 9:35
