         looks good to me, but I'd make a copy of the apache config file as 
well unless you are very sure that you didn't change anything in there. 
Mercury Mail is nice, but make sure that it really saves the settings that 
you specified in the GUI. The ini files are somewhat easy to follow. I once 
tried Mercury Mail, configured it all nicely to allow only local accounts 
for testing, but it never saved the settings on clicking Save. Luckily I 
noticed that I was running a spam server before my ISP got aware of it. 
Since then I dropped the idea of running my own mail server.
