It means you have to look through any <filename>.rpmnew
(configuration) file and "do the right thing"... Usually merge in new
settings or update defaults that may have changed.
For MailScanner.conf you (of course) use the update_MailScanner_conf
utility to do this, but the upgrade may have created others. Do a find
to see what you've got.

Only if you want to check the signature of the archive...;-).
