    Postfix forward contents of mailbox question - Fedora Core 6


    Hi Guys,

    I've managed to set up a Postfix server and its running fine. Handling virtual hosts etc.

    The server ran for a while and collected quite a bit of mail in the root account.

    I have since now forwarded the root email to my user account and I am collecting it fine.

    I have quite a few mails in the root mail file from before the the switch round to being delivered to my user account.

    Is there a simple command I can use to move all of the old mails into my user accounts mail file?

    Or can I just append the contents of the root mail file to my user mail file?

    Thanks in advance,


    Jim ;]

    I backed up my mail files and did a:

    cat root >> user

    This appended the root file onto the end of the user file. I collected my users email and got everything!!

    Fixed ;]
