    I have to do a server restore tonight because for some reason, the server was compromised. So we did a restore 2 days ago, and now my email wont work. It sends fine, but everything sent TO it, is rejected. So I called, and they told me when I copied the files to the new server, I copied the compromised files too, so the email wont work.

    SO I am backing up all accounts, and I am asked this:

    "Backup Config Files ????"
    "Backup Config Files (not needed to restore specific accounts)"

    Well I need to know, will this backup the "compromised files", or just the healthy stuff, and what if I dont back up the configs, and restore... will something go wrong?

    Thanks guys.
