I personally would recommend installing on a test box so you can play
with the software, and learn the new features before you just try to
upgrade to live.  It's a smooth transition, but always still a good

Subject: [vchkpw] Upgrading an old vpopmail install

Hey guys,

I want to go from vpopmail-4.9.8 to probably 5.2.1, or maybe the 
unstable branch.

This is a live system and I am a bit weary about everything working 
without as much as 5 minutes of downtime. The only difference that I 
could see between a new version and the old is the placement of 
tcp.smtp(.cdb) files. But that is pretty trivial. Everything else was 
the same.

Are there any serious differences that qmail, qmailadmin, courier-imap, 
etc would care about? I know that there's been a lot of development 
going on, but from a functional and practical point of view, would qmail

use vpopmail in the same exact way?
