Thanks, we might get to try it one day if we build a new system, right now there is way too many domains and users to go risk corrupting the working setup, since my boss has told me I can not show him an official "howto" or README type file, like that exists for your preferred method since I have no experience in setting it up, I am not permitted to try it since they pride themselves in reliable service he does not want any chance of things going wrong, so hes told me in the absence of that material ,he has no guarantees that it will stick to the vpopmail directory structure, so any new boxes added to the farm must remain Qmail until I can show him such that is proven.
Thanks again anyway.
