Thanks for thinking about / covering all of these aspects. The IP will 
move to the new box.

    I was planning to sync qfiles also (now that you mention it). Looking 
at our current qfiles, some of them have files which look like they should 
be deleted:

Bounces: 260 (all .bak, but one .tmp)
Shunt: 145 .pck

    Should I kill the files in bounces, and run unshunt on files in shunt 
which are not terribly old?

Thanks for your time,
