How do I delete mail from mail file /var/mail/su after reading mails
I used to receive data in mail from users. I used to read those data
and load that into a ORACLE table. However I am not able to delete
those mails after reading and loading it.
Currently I delete them manually when the mail file grow very big
Is there a way we can delete these mails after we read it using shell
...Mail and mail directories
I use pine to access my mail (via login to an IMAP server).
Pine seems to create two directories <home>/Mail and <home>/mail,
and both directories seem to contain identical copies of
all my folders. Is there a configuration option that will
ensure that pine maintains only one such directory?

I imported my email from an iMac g5 to a MacBook Pro running Leopard. I now
have an inbox, sent box, Trash, and underneath that a set of folders I'd
created in Mail on the iMac for various mail stuff.
Under that is a gmail heading (all my mail comes to Mail app from Gmail),
and under that another inbox, sent box.
Is there a way to meld these two inboxes? Last time I looked, a new mail
coming in showed up in both places, requiring me to select each in turn.

When I send mail to a long mailing list, sent mail sometimes shows me
that the BCC line contains 2 addresses per line like this:
Darien DeLu <firstname.lastname@example.org>,
David Casselman <email@example.com>,
Deen Eber <firstname.lastname@example.org>, Dirk De Lu <email@example.com>,
Doug Henry <firstname.lastname@example.org>,
In the address book, addresses are listed one per line with commas at the
end. As you can see, above Dirk De Lu appears under Bcc: as the second
entry on one line with a space after the comma.
When this happens, it appears Dirk does not ...How to hightlight the mail from mailing lists
I have lots mails from a mailing list (lets take
email@example.com for example). So I want to have a clearer view
of them. I've looked up the manual already, seems that I should add
this to my .muttrc:
color index foreground background pattern
But what does "pattern" mean? Should I replaced it with the address
or a regexp or something else?
Thanks a lot.

I'm trying to set up a mailing list with Mercury /32 v4 and I'm having
problems. I hope this is the right place to seek help.
To the best of my knowledge, I created the list correctly. I added a
couple of accounts to the subscription list. However, when I send a
message to the list, it never gets distributed, and the sending
account gets a bounce back email stating that "the user doesn't
exist". So.. my questions are:
1. Does the mailing list address have to exist as a user account in
Mercury? During my trouble-shooting, I thought that it might, so I

Not sure if it's what your asking, but the Address Book application
allows you to create mailing lists, and there's lots of information in
the Address Book Help file. Once you've created the list, you can
select it and use it in the Mail application.

On my laptop which connects to an SBC DSL internet connection via a wireless
network in our home, both Eudora 6.2 and 7.0 (I downloaded 7.0 in hopes it
would fix this problem) checks for mail, retrieves none and tells me I have
no new mail. In fact, there is mail which I can retrieve through a browser
on the laptop or on our desktop computer. I have all account settings set
identical to the Eudora program on our desktop computer (which connects
directly to the DSL without utilizing the wireless connection). I can send
mail from the laptop just fine using Eudora.

After many years using Eudora, I think it is time to switch. Eudora is
corrupting its mailboxes, old messages tend to mix up and become unreadable.
This is unfortunate as otherwise Eudora does the right things for me.
So the questions are :
- which e-mail app do you recommend (on a PowerBook G4/667, 10.4.10) ?
- I am currently trying Mail; succeeded in importing the Eudora
mailboxes except the Inbox (1GB) -> how do I import it ???
Try Eudora Mailbox Cleaner.
Worked perfectly for me.
