We are going to rework the entire inbound mailsystem. The new mailsystem will have more scalability and much more power, fault tolerance and features compared to the old mailsystem.

Affected customers:
All customers with Forwarding Mails and/or Mailaccounts and/or Domains are affected.

Impact for customers:

* Before the activation of the new inbound mailsystem: no impact
* During the activation of the new inbound mailsystem: no impact (seamless change)
* After the full activation of the new inbound mailsystem and deactivation of the old mailsystem:
** Change of the internal routing of mails (only headers affected)
** Re-Activation of some selected inbound spam / antivirus policies for mail-alias
** Rejection of mails that apply to selected inbound policy for mail alias
** Activation of "no spam forwarding" - policy for all email-forwarding to external providers

deployment plan:
* development and test: until 12.10.2021
* deployment and parallel service new/old: 13.10.2021 - 20.10.2021
* deactivation of old inbound mailsystem: 21.10.2021

1.) Do I lose EMails during the deployment?

2.) Do I have a delay for delivery during the deployment?

3.) Do I have to do anything in Control Panel before, during or after the deployment?

4.) Do I get more or less spam / virus after the deployment?
This depends on your selected policy for your mail-alias. If you have selected "remove spam and virus" you will get less of these emails. No tagged EMails become delivered in future.
