This upgrade, might negate some of the changes you had to make to get this
working in the first place.
Some of the code that Steve had you comment out can be uncommented.
I would recommend you run the install.sh script in the rpm install tarball,
and I have attached quick and dirty script to back up your current
configuration before you start. It isn't hard to follow, and allows you to
quickly go back if need be.


MailScanner is like deodorant...
You hope everybody uses it, and
you notice quickly if they don't!!!!
