Re: Red Hat 9 to FC2 and email



Hi Again,

Well a little bit more reading and I have solved my b. problem - rather
than playing around with sendmail - oh for a GUI interface to
sendmail!!!! - I switched to the postfix MTA and made the simple change
- all new e-mail is delivered to the Cyrus IMAP system.

My question is now, how do I convert outstanding e-mail in
/var/spool/mail?

Thanks
Burn
