Upgrades are made quite simple using the upgrade_mailscanner_conf script
provided as part of the 4.x distribution.  You may be down for 5 minutes or
so, but ZERO mail should be lost in the process.  Any mail to be delivered
to your box will simply spool up on the remote server or your secondary MX
until the primary comes back up.

Did you receive any answers to this? I'm looking at doing the same thing.
