About two months ago my mail system fell apart and a thoughtful network fellow helped me re-organize things. Everything, including using a small server as a firewall. We set up three services on another box, that included using IMAP (with sendmail). IMAP indexes things on my mailserver logically, by an integer scheme. When I look for an old file I have to scp to the server and grep through the entire list before I find what I'm looking for. Previously, I [[ usually ]] remembered the sender's name so that here, in ~/Mail, I could easily view the file with vi + a few keystrokes.
Soooo, is there a way to make symlinks or copies of all of my *saved* mail-- wherever? In other words, if the message is in a file called 144567912456777878.556778990-67812989900 sent by user jqs, I would be able to view that message by just typing % vi jqs. thanks, gary -- Gary Kline [EMAIL PROTECTED] www.thought.org Public Service Unix http://jottings.thought.org http://transfinite.thought.org _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
