About two months ago my mail system fell apart and a thoughtful network fellow
helped me re-organize things. Everything, including using a small server as
a firewall. We set up three services on another box, that included using
IMAP (with sendmail). IMAP indexes things on my mailserver logically, by an
integer scheme. When I look for an old file I have to scp to the server and
grep through the entire list before I find what I'm looking for. Previously,
I [[ usually ]] remembered the sender's name so that here, in ~/Mail, I
could easily view the file with vi + a few keystrokes.
Soooo, is there a way to make symlinks or copies of all of my *saved* mail--
wherever? In other words, if the message is in a file called
144567912456777878.556778990-67812989900 sent by user jqs, I would be able to
view that message by just typing
% vi jqs.
