Hi all –
From my old server, I have Perl scripts which I use to manage my mailbox. The old system gave me a file /var/mail/ with all the messages in it, and I could read and write it (with appropriate locking) to filter stuff.
What’s the right way to do this under Dreamhost’s email system? I see ~/Maildir with various subdirectories and files for my mail, but it seems (experimentally heh) that I can’t just go willy-nilly moving them around and expect the mail system (IMAP?) to work.
What do I do? Is there some well-known spec that will guide me?
I’m a highly skilled programmer/scripter, but I don’t know the rules of this mail system.
Al guidance appreciated! thanks.
