hi Experts

i am running spamassassin 3.003000
and want to upgrade to latest stable i.e. 3.3.1

Can i do it in one big jump or i need to upgrade thru all the intermediate versions first? i.e
from
3.003000 to 3.1.0
the to 3.2 and so on.

Also should i upgrade both spamassassin and mailscanner at the same time or one by one?

Thanks Experts

You can do it in one jump.  Things to remember:

* if you are using clam, that has to be removed and installed new (not upgraded).

* back up your MailScanner.conf and any files with custom changes in /etc/MailScanner and /etc/mail/spamassassin.

* if you have more than one installation of perl (such as in /usr and /usr/local) MailScanner may have trouble finding the modules it needs.  when you run 'where perl', make sure that it only finds one 'perl'.
