Thanks Mark,,,

And yes to your questions 

I will call it the same name,  the IP address will be changed but I will
just change the DNS entry and point it to my new IP...

I will install sendmail on it(but any suggestions ?)  and apache will be
installed as well.... I'll read on the links u sent...

I will do a test tonight,,,, 6PM EST......   

Many thanks again..

Will the new server have the same hostname(s) (server.example.com) as
the old? Will it have an MTA and a web server for Mailman?

If the answers are yes, then you're probably OK.

If the name is different, see

If the new server doesn't have an MTA, you will have issues with sending
and receiving mail. If it doesn't have a web server, you will have
issues with the web interface.

In any case,
may be of interest.
