So, after a weekend of brokenness and sad co-workers, the Hesiod behavior has been reverted so that users who are split between IMAP and Exchange (that is, Exchange users who still have an IMAP box) will get IMAP Hesiod information. Exchange users (e.g. prefrosh) will have imap.exchange.mit.edu Hesiod information. Hesiod is up to date as of now, DNS will catch up shortly.
So, we still have to figure out what, if anything, we want to do about Athena 9 (the dialups, primarily), and the various Debathena mail configurations (Pine, Evolution, Thunderbird, mitmailutils, etc) need to be updated to always talk to the IMAP server on an SSL port, to ensure that things work for both IMAP and Exchange users (to avoid attempting to speak krb4 on port 143 to imap.exchange)
Let's talk about this at release-team (7/21, N42-203, 2:00pm) if not before.
