Diversions of conffiles are not supported. Check that
/etc/courier/authdaemonrc is not a conffile. If it is, you could
easily lose data in my experience.

I suggest installing your files to /usr/local/share/etc/courier and
then using ucf or just plain cat to modify the file in /etc/courier.
This is how I solved the challenge in a cluster situation. You can
force ucf to replace files by setting $UCF_FORCE_CONFFNEW .
