I guess I should have said standard config *paths* only.

Perhaps ship an alternate dovecot-postfix file in the same directory, with
a README suggesting it can be copied over ?

The thing that bugs me about the ltsp dhcp setup is that a knowledgeable
administrator battles to figure out what is going on. Maybe ltsp is a
special case because of all the interdependent services involved that
might be completely beyond a novice school admin, and pretty much all
fixable with a custom dhcpd.conf.

But a seasoned administrator does not expect to have to look in init scripts.

exim and postfix setup have debconf dialogs to ease the pain - might
dovecot and postfix have Robin Hood/Little John debconf scripts that
spot each others installation ?

Admittedly, all too late for lucid.

Cheers,  Andy!
