Sendmail upgrade

By Frusciante ·
Hey all,

I have an old RedHat Linux server running Fedora Core 2. I am running a mail server on the machine in addition to a web server. I want to bump up (upgrade) to the newest version of RedHat Enterprise Linux 5.3.

So yeah, in order to upgrade to this new machine, I was wondering how to go about swapping to this new server to handle my mail. Is it as simple as getting on the network with the proper IP and taking over the /etc/mail directory or does sendmail config files live elsewhere as well. Obviously I do not want to miss something or some file. Thanks

to get the /var/mail and /etc/sendmail/
folders as well.
the /var/mail is the server mail que, where the mail has not been sent or received yet.
and /etc is the configuration area for everything.
