Uninstall mailwatch doubt: Mailscanner database and Mailwatch/MailControl

Posted: 02 Dec 2018, 15:35

Mailwatch uses a mysql database named "mailscanner" (this is a systemwide database not tied to any particular domain).

Because of the late situation with Mailwatch, I believe that we will be forced to uninstall Mailwatch sooner or later.

To understand the consequences of that I need some information:

1) Was the "mailscanner" database originally created by Mailscanner itself or by Mailwatch?
2) Is the "mailscanner" database used by Mailscanner or MFE?
3) Is it used by Mailcontrol?
4) Will this "mailscanner" database be erased when we finally uninstall Mailwatch?

Thanks in advance for any answers provided

1) The database was (and still is) created by our MailScanner front-end installer script and was used by Mailwatch
2) The MailScanner Front-End uses it
3) Yes
4) No

Hope this helps.

Sarah

As far as I can understand from the above thread, configserver.com is not going to support Mailwatch any more.
You will probably have to install manually (not integrated with cpanel) and taking care to create a different mysql database to avoid conflicts with MFE (Mailscanner Front End) and Mailcontrol.
