It's Alive... my Linux Box, that is

I'm not sure what exactly what I did right this time, but last night I was able to reload my Linux box with the two new drives as a mirrored pair (mirrored by the controller, not the OS) and then copy the old files back off of the old (but still functioning most of the time) disk.

That later step took two tries since the first time I forgot to do a cp -p (copy preserving permissions for those who don't speak *nix) which kept a lot of things from running.

But, by this morning, the machine was happy. It is now slowly picking up the e-mail since Friday that hasn't expired somewhere in the Internet and I should be back in service.

Now, I just need to keep an eye on my weekly backups and figure out why all internal mail turns into routes back to itself failure messages.
