    I installed a few month ago a postfix on a fedora core 5 box, I followed this manual:

    yum check-update

    If I update this modules specially ldap, courier* will my postfix installation still work without a problem? will I need to reconfigure courier-mysql? and all the other files?

    Hope you can give a hand on this.

    I do not now if you have to reconfigure anything in your special case.
    But I noticed in all updates I have done with yum in the past, that if yum or the updated package changes any configfile, that it notices you about that and the old is saved as *.rmpsave (or sth. similar), so that you can check with diff or anything else if something critical has been changed.
