Is that the uidl format from a stock .99 era setup?
Where can you look to make sure before an upgrade?
I am facing an upgrade from .99 in CentOS 4 to 1.0 when it is released and I
want to make sure. Is it in the actual mbox, or in the indexes?
I have to say, that even 0.99 just blows away wuimap. I can't wait to upgrade.
MailScanner is like deodorant...
You hope everybody uses it, and
you notice quickly if they don't!!!!
