    Hi Falko

    I'm running your awesome debian lenny virtual server postfix+mysql+clamav+amvis+etc on my colo'd server. Working Great and has been for over a year.

    I now need to upgrade to Lenny (Etch support ending) and I'm really concerned that upgrading will blow away at a minimum the PostFix-MySQL changes for all the virtual hosting.

    Can you give me any words of wisdom on doing that upgrade on a production system especially regarding preserving the funcationality and data of the postfix+mysql setup?

    Thanks again,

    Just to add more info, I setup the server using this great tutorial of yours

    "Virtual Users And Domains With Postfix, Courier And MySQL (Debian Etch)"

    Just to clarify, if I upgrade postfix along with everything and don't patch it, all I lose is quotas? That is, all the other configuration changes I made to have postfix use MYSQL etc will still be in place and it 'should just work'? I don't have to go thru the HowTo you referred to for Lenny and redo all the configuring?

    I miss remembered and was thinking that the postfix patches were part of allowing it to use MYSQL.

    Thanks again.
