help for an error warning

Hello, this is the first day I use mutt, and i find problems to store read
messages in a mailbox...in fact, the program shows me this error warning:
'couldn' t lock /home/username/mbox?' (mbox is the file name of stored
messages, right?)...
Could you suggest anything, please?

Thanks,
ALberto

	My guess: the mail box is already locked by
	another mail user agent (probably another Mutt).

Another guess: maybe the /home/username/mbox file is on a samba mounted
directory.

Question: is the '?' actually there (I mean just after the mbox) ?

I hate to follow-up my own reply but...
IIRC, the same applies to every FAT* formatted partition.

Hope this helps,

Error when checking mail
Long standing Eudora user, now have verrsion 6.2.1.2 (paid). Many mailboxes with filters. Recently (last few months) when I check email I get a pop up box that says: Could not open the file for writing Cause: no such file or director exists (2) When I click "OK" the mail goes to the relevant box although sometimes another box saying exactly the same thing pops up and I have to repeat the sequence. I don't think I have lost any email and eventually all my mail does download - but any clues as to why this is happening ? Any suggestions ? Thanks Fahim jaf...

Compilation Error/Warning
Hello everybody, I am not yet fully comfortable with understanding c++ warnings/error messages. Very recently I have updated my IDE to VC++7.0 (MS.Net 7.0-Enterprise architect) from vc++6. Initially the same code used to compile without any messages. Now the following warning/error messages are appearing. I don't think this it is related some source code of mine. Otherwise I would have pasted the my code here. Feel like it some kind of configuration tweak is necessary to my Makefile. The same messages are appearing for all my *.cpp files. Can you give me a hint on why these are appearin...

Error out instead of warn, i.e. warning('error', id)
In previous versions of Matlab (at least in R2007a), one could set the status of a warning message to be 'error'. This would cause any function encountering that particular warning to error out instead of just issuing a warning. The behavior was undocumented, and apparently has been removed from more recent versions of Matlab. I only recently discovered the error status possibility, but I found this little technique to be very helpful, both to permanently change certain warnings to errors (such as the inexact match error, 'MATLAB:dispatcher:InexactMatch', which used to d...

Help required: Warning treated as error
I am trying to build an application with DDK/SDK Wnet in which it is giving a warning which i don't plan to solve. And the linker by default is treating that warning as error and hence not building the application. I know that its possible to make the Compiler not to treat a warning as error by setting the warning level but is it also possible with the Linker in some way. Thanks in Anticipation.

Error Checking Mail
I've been using Eudora e-mail since the 80s. I love the program. In Eudora 7.1 suddenly last night I tried to check my e-mail and got the following error message: 106 message(s) left to download, LIST 0 There has been an error transferring your mail. I said: LIST 0 and then the POP server said: ERR messages are counted from 1 I've never had the problem before. I've tried everything I can think of. Does anyone know how to fix this?
