Default new hardware, existing system...

G'day,

lets just say I have my mail server running on an oldish p4 with debian etch.

I have a new computer I want to use as the mail server

how is the best way to move it all across?

Not too keen on having to go through the install process again

Do you use Maildir or mbox format?
