Hi again..

All the problems with old collectd's not sending any data anymore where caused 
by myself.. ;)
When updating collectd the types.db was overwritten. So the lines for my 
own "collectors" where missing.. Now that I've added them again, everything's 
fine.. :)

I don't know yet, if collectd-email is working, too, but that's not important 
for me, since I'm still using mailgraph, atm..
I'll give it another try as soon as I'm finished with my other stuff..

Cheers and thanks again for your fast and nice help,
