None whatsoever. Your home dir and your system mailbox are two completely
unrelated things. /var/spool/mail/username is the normal location for a user's
mailbox in Linux and a number of other *nixs.
it is possible that during the past few months of me struggling
half heartedly with procmali that it has been upgraded and/or moved.
Yes, that's entirely possible.
see the deally with my sitch is this: i may be the SOLE person
on this grand 60TERAbyte mail server who wants to be using procmail.
Kayven, UCSF, being primarily a medical school, might conceivably have a
database or two in the terabyte range. I rather doubt they are throwing 60TB
at their mail server. All the mail servers throughout the University of
California system probably don't come to a full ter. I doubt even AOL throws
THAT much at their mail services. Let's leave the hyperbole to discussions of
politics and religion (read: not on this list.)
i think that is what the admin meant. i want to improve my skillset
that is why i am adamantly clinging to the multimegabytes of spam
this mailing lists pounds on me day by day.
Spam is defined as unsolicted commercial email. This list hardly qualifies. If
you truely believe this list to be spam, unsubscribe. Let's see you stop your
other sources of spam so easily.
[andrew(_at_)ember andrew]$ ls -lh mail/lists/procmail

That dates back well over a month. Again, see previous reference to hyperbole.
v3.15.. hmm... its v3.21 that is current, right? i suppose i should
return to my struggle with trying to install that myself on my $HOME
so i don't have to bother the admins?
3.21 or 3.15.2, depending which branch you wish to track, yes.
