Hi all!

I'm running FreeBSD 8.0 Release on this particular server and I have a
rather large root mailbox under /var/mail/root.

I have set up an alias under /etc/aliases for new emails, but I need to
forward all the old emails in this mailbox to an external email address.

How can I do that?

Thanks for your help!
