Comment: Don't bother listing 0.99 problems anymore

== Reading problems ==

{{{
Error indexing mbox file /var/mail/user: LF not found where expected
}}}

This happens with Dovecot v0.99.x when there are multiple From-lines in row in the mbox, ie:

{{{
From some@one Wed Jan 5 09:03:48 2000
From another@one Wed Jan 5 09:09:25 2000
}}}

This shouldn't normally happen, and it's not good in any case to have them. Deleting one of them fixes the problem. Dovecot 1.0 releases don't have this problem anymore.

== Corruption problems ==

These are usually related to incompatible locking settings between all programs accessing the mboxes. Make sure they use the exact same locking methods.

=== Empty line at the beginning of mbox ===

This is an unsolved rarely occurring bug in 0.99.x Dovecot versions. Use 1.0 releases instead.
