I searched the mailscanner archives at

But I could not locate updates information.  I also tried to find the
recently topic of "Complete Build".  I know that there is a ton of
information in there but I just could not find it.  I know that a lot is
talked about what to run it on, however if I may inquire on my setup as
Linux is not my environment of expertise.  I will try to make my questions
short.  My main and pretty much only question is what versions should I use?

What I have now:
384 RAM
IDE hard drive (desktop)

I will be moving to:
Dual 600PIII
1024 RAM
3x9.1GB RAID 5 Hard drives

What I have now:
Redhat 9 (Shrike)
MailScanner 4.25
Spamassassin 2.61
MailStats for statistics
Running RulesDuJour
Running other rules too
Sendmail version ??
Sophos virus scanning

In question to move to:
Should I still use Redhat 9?  Seems to work fine
MailScanner 4.40.11
Sendmails latest version 8.13.4
Spamassassin latest version 3.0.2
Different rule sets from the web sites
