Things look quiet here. But I've been doing a lot of blogging at
dan.langille.org because I prefer WordPress now.
Not all my posts there are FreeBSD related.
I am in the midst of migrating The FreeBSD Diary over to WordPress
(and you can read about that here).
Once the migration is completed, I'll move the FreeBSD posts into the
new FreeBSD Diary website.
Forwarding mail in one mailbox to another6 February 1999
This article will tell you how to move the mail in one user's mailbox to another
user's mailbox. The mailboxes are assumed to be on the same machine. This
procedure will only work once. It is not an automatic procedure.
If you want mail
to be forwarded all the time, or to another mailbox on another mail system, this isn't
what you want.
I had mail sitting in the root mailbox. That's no good to me there. I
wanted it in my personal mailbox so I could read it from my NT box. The mail had
wound up there after I'd messed up my /etc/aliases file. Now that I've
fixed that problem, I still have three messages sitting in root.
# cd /var/mail
[root@ns:/var/mail] # cat root >> otherid
Where otherid is the id of the you want to send the data
My thanks to billg for sending me this solution. Cheers.
