Mail vs. Maildir in shell acct?


#1

Curious whay I have both of these? ~/Maildir is obviously where all of my mail is being delivered; and ~/mail is an empty directory. Is there any reason why this is there?


#2

It’s created by default when your home directory is setup. That’s where mail subfolders used to go before we switched to Maildir format. You can safely ignore or remove it.

Thanks… I figured it was something along those lines; when it was empty and the last mod time was August of last year (vs. today for Maildir), then I figured I’d make it go bye-bye!
