Important: If you are using a custom ODBC.dll file developed by a 3rd party vendor, contact the vendor for information about an updated ODBC.dll file for IMail Server. Failure to update the ODBC.dll file could result in a message being misdirected or users unable to access their accounts.

Known Update Issues
If updating from a pre 8.2x version, you will need to replace the Web Calendaring templates rather than do a partial upgrade of the templates. Failure to do so will result in display issues with Web Calendaring.
Safari: When replying/forwarding HTML messages, all encoding/HTML tags in original message are displayed.
If updating from a pre 2006.04 version, the UID format has changed; all UIDs will be rebuilt. IMAP users who have deleted messages but not purged may see these messages reappear. POP3 users who leave their messages on the server could see these "re-Popped" after upgrade. This is equivalent to the administrator manually deleting the .UID file for a user's mailbox(s). 
WGSCVT.exe will not be able to convert contacts for some domains that are using a custom ODBCuser.dll. These users will not have access to contacts stored in aliases.txt converted to the database.
