Indeed.  I even have a script that verifies a "functioning" mailscanner
system before telling it to restart (I build stuff in a developement
directory tree before copying it over the "working" stuff).  Alas I was
in too much of a hurry to escape the orifice and missed the SpamcopURI
upgrade and didn't bother running the verification script.  Just did the
SA 2.64 upgrade, did the /usr/local/etc/init.d/ restart"
and went home - didn't even tail the log for a few seconds to make sure
it worked! Doh! Doh! Doh!

Sleep has been had, coffee consumed and LARTing complete.  I think it
safe to wear the Mail Admin hat again.
