    Default ERROR upgrade :7.2.3 to 8.0.3 Duplicate column name 'deleted_by_user'

    I've upgraded a server from 7.2.3 to 8.0.3 and I get this error below. (CentOS6)
    There was a corrupt mboxgroup table that I had to create an empty SQL script for as the exported sql was also corrupt/incomplete.

    Do you want to verify message store database integrity? [Y] Y

    Seems due to corrupt mboxgroup, upgrade was half finished. Luckily I made SQL & LDAP exports/backup before, so I could restore SQL from text exports and then upgrade finished succesfully.
    Never underestimate the power of an SQL export.

    Strange thing is, roughly my steps were:
    1)SQL exports+ LDAP backup
    2) Upgrade old CentOS5-64 server from 7.1.3 to 7.2.3 - NO ERRORS
    3) Install software only on new CentOS6-64
    4) Link /opt disk to new server
    5) "Upgrade to 7.2.3" - NO ERRORS - ALL WORKING 100%
    6) Upgrade to 8.0.3 - corrupt mboxgroup detected. Check original backup, also corrupt!

    How did it pass by 2 upgrades and server transfer with no problems, then 7.2.3<->8.0.3 hits the error.

    Anyways, just glad it's fixed.
