The standard for the seen DB was changed from flat to skiplist as my memory
recalls on that suse package. You should see database errors in your syslog
coming from lmtpd and imapd.
You need to convert all your seen-databases to skiplist if you want to use
the default configuration.
New states will not be added because the seen_db-engine can not even read
your old flat files.
Workaround (ONLY if you see such errors in your log stating that seen_db is
not readable): put
in your imapd.conf and do a "rcimap restart", and things should just
continue as they did.
