Yeah, I thought that looked suspicious. Did you copy the maildir installation over directly from a Windows machine? What program was originally used to create that installation? I suppose this is an argument for using some sort of export/import process, rather than straight copying. > if i change!2 in :2 (this assumes gnus, i read), the message is > accepted. > > But how could i change the string inside the filename from !2 to :2 ? > Perhaps with dired, but i dont know how? Dired has wdired-mode that allows you to edit file names in the dired buffer as though they were plain text, and then "commit" all the renames at once. If you have a small number of files to rename or they're all in the same directory that would be most straightforward. If these files are scattered through a very large number of directories you'll probably want to do it in the shell, probably with find and exec and mv.
