as suggested by Lawrence (above) and all the other freebsd-* lists and
it seems to work the first time around. the second time fetchmail was
called, __none__ of the mails were filtered __at all__. i am still
figuring out where i did wrong. as i'm using mutt, (and probably OT for
this list), it (mutt) complains that /var/mail/$USER is not a mailbox?!
there __are__ mails in /var/mail/$USER but they do not start with a
"From: list/person-name <date> <time> "
That would be
"From list/person-name date time"
Note the lack of a colon. This has been discussed many times before on
the list. Here's my message when this came up last month:
value which mutt thinks is not a valid mailbox. strange.
mailstat ~/Procamil/log seems to be processing fine but theres no new
mails. (invisible mails?)
This is just another symptom of the previous problem.
