Default quotas - Virtual Users And Domains With Postfix, Courier And MySQL (Debian Etch)

Hi - I've had this great setup working for quite awhile now, but, I'm afraid to apt-get upgrade because of the modified postfix, so, I've got about 90 packages out of date.

Can I just upgrade with the standard postfix if I don't care about quotas, or will that break something since the rest of my setup (MySQL, control files, etc) expects or relies on the patched postfix?

If I can't just upgrade to the std postfix, where do I find up to date patches for the current postfix source?

Thanks for all the great howto's and your support here in the forum

OK, first I feel like a n00b for not finding any of those, and thank you for the pointer.

But, the second part of my question was ''if I don't care about quota's can I just upgrade, or will that break my setup because of possible quota changes elsewhere in other files / parts of the install "?

Thanks

I've read all the references to pinning and I must be doing something wrong. I'm running 2.3.8

server:~> sudo postconf -d | grep mail_version
mail_version = 2.3.8

Here is my preferences file

server:~> cat /etc/apt/preferences
Package: postfix*
Pin: version 2.3.8
Pin-Priority: 1001

but when I run apt-get upgrade it looks like it is still going to upgrade postfix....

server:~> sudo apt-get -d upgrade

ok I ran it w/o -d and even though it stated it was updating and looked like it did, afterwards postconf showed it was still 2.3.8.

thanks
