A script to automatically link your Mail.app mailboxes
Authored by: avit on Oct 31, '02 08:14:52PM

Nice script! One bug in pine_import:
find ~/Library/Mail/Mailboxes -name mbox -exec ./pine_link {} ;

should have a backslash to escape the terminating semicolon:
find ~/Library/Mail/Mailboxes -name mbox -exec ./pine_link {} \\;

(I realized it's not YOUR bug after I previewed my own post. The forum doesn't do backslashes unless you escape them by typing \\\\)

Dang!

What's going on here? One minute the backslashes disappear, and the next minute they're doubled after I escape them!

Please view all double backslashes as single backslashes in my previous post.
