Description Evilham 2021-01-05 13:18:56 UTC
Discovered this on #252415 but thought it'd be better off on a PR of its own.

It looks like support for vpopmail is being dropped in dovecot [1]

I have not been able to identify its deprecation in the documentation [2] or changelogs, but as seen in #252415 some files related to vpopmail have started already.

I had missed this in 2.3.13 release notes:

* auth: Removed passdb-sia, passdb-vpopmail and userdb-vpopmail.
