First of all .. thanks by this fast help !!
I am 100% sure my version is the UW original and because of this I will go
ahead with the upgrade.
Let me ask you more something:
-find the imapd file,
-do a backup of this file,
-compile the new one
-ONLY REPLACE the old imapd with the new imapd
-restart inetd service
the imap2004 service will work properly ? and if necessary, I can use the
imapd backuped file
to restore to an old enviroment ?
I mean .. the imapd file is the only thing I need to backup ? Not libraries,
.conf files, other ?
