Before migrating, read the details in the Announcement Board here!

If there's one the spool, it's very likely that they're outgoing messages.
So the best solution is to give the old version the time to flush them.
Otherwise, a script that insert a first line like :

127.0.0.1:0;127.0.0.1:0;Whatever

in each spoll *message* should make the trick.


Use XQM to check your spool after migration. It also gives you the file path, if you need to edit some messages that way. XQM is still compatible to the new spoolfile format.

When dealing with the new filer scheme, you might need this one:

http://www.ralphb.net/IPSubnet/cidr.html

... which explains that special "192.168.1.0/24" notation (=CLIDR notation)

When dealing with IP addressing in filters, Xmail Queue Manager is very helpful. It displays the new INFO DATA in the spoolfile header, that tells you from which IP the message came and where it goes to. E.g.

CODE
 
192.168.0.1:4699;192.168.0.1:25;Sat, 15 Feb 2003 08:57:19 +0100
tbird
S31CFA
Mail from: <maildiag@marketmix.com>
RCPT TO:<test@marketmix.co>
<<MAIL-DATA>>


This one was sent from an application at port 4699 of 192.168.0.1.
Xmail tried to send it through port 25 (=SMTP) if interface 192.168.0.1
So this is an outgoing message.
