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,

QmailAdmin 1.2.1 supports managing MySQL-based valiases. QmailAdmin 1.0.25 and later includes contrib/alias2forward.pl, a utility for converting Maildir delivery in .qmail-alias files to email delivery. Vpopmail 5.4.1 includes dotqmail2valias for converting .qmail-alias files to MySQL valias table entries.

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.

They will continue to work (or not work) as they do now. Upgrading won't make the situation any worse than it already is. The latest QmailAdmin understands the Maildir-style aliases fine -- it just doesn't create them.
