Another suggestion, a little off-topic and probably not quite original:
you should really try to use a test server for experimenting, at least
if you do any non-trivial hosting or can tell your users to go to hell
when they complain :) Nothing makes your life more miserable than a
screwed up mail system you cannot easily recover.
The test server can even be a small virtual machine as long as it sports
the same software infrastructure (Dovecot, Postfix, MySQL, Apache and
whatever else) as the production system. Using a test system goes a
long way in ensuring that you don't run into nasty surprises and only
changes you tested and of which you know the consequences are applied
to the production instance.
