No, it's not.  In fact, this should be a blocker. The postfix
instructions are incorrect for 2.2 series for TLS.  The patch should be
removed completely, and the defines need changed to -DUSE_TLS.  If you
have other notes to add for postfix, please, please speak up on
blfs-dev.  It's next on my list, but I haven't built it since the
2.1.9?? IIRC  I just realized it had been droped too (that's 3).  I need
to pay better attention.

As far as courier-imap, certainly!  I had even though about suggesting
this myself previously but haven't had (or made) the time.  I've used
vmpop3d and toyed with cyrus-imap, and finally settled very happily on
courier-imap, as I suspect have a lot of other people as opposed to the
rest of pop/imap servers.  Interesting is that qpopper is the only pop3
server in the book and I've never touched it.

I have absolutely no interest in the full courier package myself, but
had used it in the past and so was familiar with it before the
authdaemon sep??? (uses authlib since 0.48).  If you'd like to write up
courier-imap post 6.1, I'd be happy to comment or (more likely the case)
just say "yeah, looks good to me!".  If you don't have the time right
now, bug it and we'll get to it when time permits.
