You can rpm -Uvh mailscanner*.rpm  Then all you need to do is diff the
MailScanner.conf and MailScanner.conf.rpmnew to find configuration
changed that need to be made.

Subject: Upgrading MailScanner:

I am not sure if I have made a mistake or not, and for that reason I am
looking for conformation one way or the other.

What I have done, is to download the latest version, 4.11, of
MailScanner from the Web site. Then I ran the command
tar -xvf MailScanner <tab Key to fill in the rest of the line> cd
MailScanner <tab Key to fill in the rest of the line> source install.sh

I am now seconding guessing myself. I did not uninstall the previous
version of MailScanner before running the install command. Is this going
to cause problems? Does the install script have built-in smarts to
detect a previous version of MailScanner and then do the appropriate

I couldn't find anything about this in the documentation that comes with
MailScanner, so if I missed it, or if it is not there, can a brief note
be added to the documentation on upgrading procedures for future
