      I have learned that with a chrooted environment nothing is a drop in 
ANYTHING.  I plan to have a good long overlap on the two servers, so I can 
play with the new one and get it right without upsetting any of the paying 
customers!  Unless Postfix could be installed alone side of Sendmail and 
used just for MM.  I've not looked into that, but I have a bad feeling 
about it.
