Well, I have been actively looking into all the archives, and I have
found a few good solutions to using MHonArc on my Win NT 4.0 server, but
my problem is that I get a Runtime Exception when I try to use the tool
with a .mbx file, generated by MS Outlook Express.
Is the .mbx file a UUCP-style mailbox or a binary file?
Perl is set to handle all .pl files, and I am using ActivePerl's newly
released version, which is fully backward compatible.
That is what they say, but there is no way to guarantee full backward
compatibility (in any product).
I try to use the mhonarc file, but after pausing for a bit to lock the
device (which I have tried overriding as well, in any case, using -force
operator), I get the Runtime Error.
If MHonArc abnormally terminates, a mhonarc.lck file (directory) may
be left behind. Delete it.
I have tried changing the mhonarc file to a .pl as well, and it seems to
work. Then, when I go to the directory where my Inbox.mbx (Outlook
Express folder), and run it, it works but only to give the following :
Trying to lock mail archive in . ..
Error: Runtime Error
As a control case, it would help if you run MHonArc on a mailbox file
other than from Outlook. This way, you can see if it is a problem
with Outlook's format.
