Did you backup before you upgraded?
I have a script that I use to backup before every upgrade, and have an easy
way to restore with one command should the need arrise. It is modified from
the code snippet in the wiki.
I know that this won't help you now, but maybe in the future.


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