By default, Fetchmail will put your mail wherever $MAIL points to. Usually this is in a file named /var/mail/username, where username is your login name. $ echo $LOGNAME ozzmosis $ echo $MAIL /var/mail/ozzmosis And by default, Mutt will look in the same place, as per muttrc(5): spoolfile Type: path Default: "" If your spool mailbox is in a non-default place where Mutt can- not find it, you can specify its location with this variable. Mutt will automatically set this variable to the value of the environment variable $MAIL if it is not set. I use Fetchmail, Procmail, SpamAssassin, Mutt and Postfix quite successfully here. :-) Regards Andrew _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
