For what its worth I'd like to see something along the lines Michael
describes as well.

As Martin writes, atm. you more or less have to write everything down as
instructions if you don’t want to re-invent the wheel every time you
upgrade, or maybe write a script that does it (a script which would probably
need updating when something is changed in the installation method)

So my 5 cents would be that it would make most sence for the installer to
somehow make it easier to upgrade MailScanner.

I mean we are blessed with a project which is routinely updated, and not
just minor skipable updates but great additions to functions and what not,
so I think people running MailScanner upgrade quite a lot (or at least it
would they would benefit if they do)

I can only speak for myself, but I often put of upgrading because I find it
to be an overly complex process, that makes me revisit a lot of stuff every
time I have to do it. So I normally only do it once every 6 months or so.

As I said the above is just my take on it, so no offence to anybody :)
