I'm running a postfix server on FreeBSD 6.1 and I'd like to have
a cronjob which deletes old mails from mboxes in /var/mail.
I tried mail/archivemail but it cannot create it's lock file
in /var/mail because it runs as the user owning the mailbox
on which it operates.
I also tried mail/archmbox but I'm wondering if it is safe
to use it while postfix is running. Quoting the manual:
A few words about locking. There has been a discussion about archmbox
handles file locking. The answer is simple: no mailbox is ever locked.
The reason behind this behavior is that I want archmbox to be as least
invasive as possible, so other kind of checks are performed to ensure
that no data is lost (mailbox has changed/mailbox is in use by another
program). I will surely add some locking mechanism in the future.
Any help would be appreciated.
