Fortimail 6.2.3 vs 6.2.2 vs 6.0.8?

Hello, We are looking to upgrade our Fortimail soon but have not seen much feedback on the newer OS versions.  Considering Fortimail 6.2.3 vs 6.2.2 vs 6.0.8 and of Fortigate we generally wait for a x.x.4 release or higher.  Anyone testing Fortimail 6.2.2 or .3 and any big bugs?  Looking forward to geolocation and a bug fix for the html warning. 
 
I have seen some feedback on FortiOS in general for 6.2.3, but curious about Fortimail and how the newer versions are treating folks.

How can I find out which one I'm on?  I see Firmware v6.2,build264,200107, but is that 6.2.0? 6.2.2? 6.2.3?

You can find the release / build mapping from https://support.fortinet.com  > Download > Firmware Images > FortiMail.
 
I assume this build was provided to you by support to remediate an issue as it is an interim patch upon 6.2.2 Build 0263.

While FortiGate releases are generally a bit "exciting" on newer builds and generally not reccomended for production use, we've found the FortiMail builds to be pretty stable.   We've not had problems with keeping on the current build, though we'll generally wait a bit after a new major release.
