Hi Robert :)

Thanks a lot for your answer mate :) :) Very thankful :) :)

I think for the moment we’ll stay in the 1.4…. this is not going to be a big problem…

And about versions… it would be fine if Ellie could told… but I assume there’s no problem with that due to not having database upgrades of mailboxes at least… so I assume quota and reconstruct won’t be needed… the conversations… I’ll take a look at them… to see if some important changes have happen… but I suppose there have not really existed…

Bye !! :)
