This was my first rpm-based upgrade and I have had some problems. The
updated files in /etc/MailScanner have nice .rpmnew files next to them.
But the upgrade just replaced /etc/sysconfig/MailScanner and
/etc/rc.d/MailScanner without any hesitation. And it changed the owner
of /var/spool/ and subidrs of /var/spool/MailScanner.

Because I run MailScanner as user mail I can't get to those spool-dirs
anymore. :-(
