mutt is your friend. Open the mbox file with # mutt -R -f /var/mail/root Then Tag all mails (press 'T' then enter '.') and bounce the tagged messages (press ';' and thenn 'b') to your personal email address. That's the easiest way I know. (Of course you need a running MTA, too) -- Oliver PETER, email: [EMAIL PROTECTED], ICQ# 113969174 "Worker bees can leave. Even drones can fly away.
