From the QmailAdmin INSTALL file:
QmailAdmin 1.2.0 and later requires Vpopmail 5.4.0 or later.
Upgrading from 5.3.18 to 5.4.3 shouldn't result in a tedious migration effort. If you use MySQL, you'll need to create a file with the user/password settings (as opposed to editing vmysql.h). The "defaultdomain" has moved from a configure option to an external file.
There really aren't a lot of other changes that I can recall...
well, the potential show-stopper is the switch from aliases and forwarding to just forwarding in the new vpopmail. i use mysql, along with mysql valiases, so what happens to those 'embedded' aliases once i upgrade? automatically converted to properly functioning forwards? i suspect not.that's what makes it kind of a tough migration.
