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.app deletes mail when deleting account
In Mail.app, in Preferences, in the Accounts panel, there is a list of
accounts. I had a POP account there I no longer in use. I used the
Remove button to delete the old account.
But I didn't mean for it to delete all mail that had been recieved
earlier into that email address. Yet that seems to be what happened.
At least I can't find the mail anywhere in any of my mailboxes or in
my_home/Library/Mail. There were a number of messages organized into
various folders. Now they are gone. These mail messages were not
sitting on a server, they were on my Mac.

Without more detail, it's only a guess...but perhaps your provider is
blocking port 25. It's probably a good idea to switch to the
"submission port" instead. I don't use Apple's Mail program for my .Mac
account and don't know just now where to go there for setting this, but
it's an automatic option I use with Eudora. You should also turn on the
encryption settings for better security.

>...Mail 2.1, two PBG4s, synchronizing mail and mail problems
Here's the sitch:
PBG4 w/broken screen, running an external (duh) Samsung monitor.
is my shop PB, it's currently masquerading as an immobile desktop.
PBG4 all fixy-fix. Mostly keep at home, but also on the road.
LaCie 320GB external Firewire drive. backup at shop (used Migration
Assistant to copy the shop PB's system (10.4.7), apps, and docs to
the FireWire drive)
Two mail accounts -- one on each PB -- both of which accounts dump
into Mail 2.1, on both PBs.
With me so far? *I'm* already lost...
Is there a way -- besides signing up with .Mac -- that I can
synchronize the mail on both machines? Failing that, is there a way
-- besides doing it message-by-message -- to save the text and
attachments from new mail messages?
Though by all means I can understand, both PBs are set up exactly
same way and certainly the mail prefs are the same, when I click on
an HTML link in a message on my PB at home, it opens Firefox to the
correct page, just like it ought to do, but if I click on an HTML
link in a message on my PB at the shop, the mail window flashes
but nothing opens. Both PBs are set up with Firefox as the default
What in the ding-dong am I doing wrong?
...Problem with mails from mailing lists
A DMZ server with a real domain name and ip. Distro is Debian
unstable, Sendmail version is 8.13.4 and kernel is 2.6.10. Server is

I'm using Mail 4.1 on 10.6.1, and my wife is using Mail 2.1.3 on
10.4.11, so there's not an exact convergence.
I have mine set up to get mail from our web host, and it works fine. I
have Louise's set up to get mail from our Web host, and it doesn't
work. My problem is that I have no clue how to diagnose the problem -
which end it's on. As far as I can tell, I set both accounts up the
same on our Web host (an external service, not run by us), and I've set
both mail.app accounts up the same.
How do I troubleshoot this?

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.

Without getting into long explanations, I cannot have wifi in my house,
