• Shell scripts to handle outgoing/incoming echomail.

    From j b l@1:154/700 to All on Saturday, April 01, 2017 20:09:13

    I have a situation (my recent crop of test messages), I have a script that does this:

    1) Copy/backup messages to a backup directory.
    2) Zero out the message base file.
    3) Post a new message.
    4) Restore backed up messages.

    The problem is that it doesn't save the recent message(s). The message base file has to be zeroed out before I can post a new message to that message area.

    Anyone have an ideas?
