Is there a way to roll back dovecot to the earlier version without losing my email domains and mailboxes?

Or have they already been deleted by the dovecot upgrade.

Where does ISPConfig store the email information, domains, aliases, forwards, mailboxes, etc.?

... checked on some things

I see in the database table dbispconfig that the mail domains, forwarders and mail users are still there.
I do see a pass word column as well.

... tried using yum to downgrade dovecot but received an error

Loaded plugins: presto, refresh-packagekit

 You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem
 You could try running: rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest
Next option is to uninstall dovecto and see if I can install the previous one.


Uninstall went OK, but when I used 'yum list obsoletes dovecot' the previous version was not listed. I am guessing the the upgrade to FC14 changed the repositories and I need to find the repo that has the previous version of dovecto.
