    Yes it's in the KB articles. Run the installer from shell and select postfix, it will remove qmail and your in business.

    Make sure afterwards your postfix is 2.5.6 or locate an updated one for your OS.

    Unlike qmail, postfix in plesk is stock package so you can run the most recent version.

    Not long at all it keeps the mailboxes in /var/qmail.

    Only messages in the queue are not processed, but unless you just did a 10k mail list out there is usually none dropped. Any emails in users mailboxes are safe, it's simply any mail in the server queue.

    If you need some postfix tweaks I got it ironed out. Unlike qmail it's a stock postfix so you can always use and build the latest and any mods.

    Thank you again, and for your offer about postfix. Actually I like postfix very much than qmail, I feel it more friendly. I have setup several mail system using postifx+mysql+amavis+clam on ssytems with no panels, it gave me lot of satisfaction, and calm ...
    If you have any tip about using postifx under plesk, I will thank you very very much.
    I think I will migrate this in the dark of the night, when clients are -hopefully- sleeping :))

    Thanks a lot.
