Afternoon guys and gals!

Just wanted to pick your brains before I approach the tech support guys! Currently running 6.2.0 in a small coporate enviroment - no problems what so ever however we're considering moving the machine over to a new machine with a bit more power and raid redundancy.

I presume it's a simple case of installing the mailserver software on the new machine, license everything up, migrate the mailstore directory, change internal port mappings to new IP address, then fire up all the mail services. My only worry is that the OS will be chaning from Microsoft 2000 Server to 2003 Standard - does anyone predict any implications that I may hit? Any suggestions or methods would be appreciated!

Thanks :)

Kerio MailServer 6.5.0 patch 1 (build 5340)
Fedora Core 8
Dell 1u SC1425 Single 3.0ghz Intel Xeon
512mb DDR2 RAM
2x Seagate 80gb (RAID 1)
25 users, mixture of Webmail/IMAP/KOFF

I would follow the advice on copressing the mail store to move it, especially on Windows. I've seen situations where Windows changes the file date on the messages if you just copy them. It appears to work fine until you run into a situation where you have to reindex a mailbox, then you're in a world of trouble.
