Mahesh, there are a variety of things you'll want to back up.
One of the most important, time consuming, and disk hogging, will
be the mail storage. This is usually located under /home/vpopmail/domains. If you're running a backend database for
authentication, you'll also want to back that up. If you arent,
the authentication files will be backed up when you tar the domains
directory. You will also want to back up qmail's control files,
and the qmail's user directory. There might be more depending upon
your system, but that should get the stuff that's critical.
