2.0.17 is only intended for sites which are upgrading from previous 2.0
versions and are unable to make the upgrade to 2.1.x for whatever reason.

I strongly recommend you use 2.1.11 if you're starting a new system.  It
has fairly substantial performance benefits over 2.0 (especially if you
are using the skiplist database backend for your mailbox list).
