Re: Resynching Mail.app with mutt and IMAP accounts
Authored by: blb on Feb 21, '03 02:37:13PM

mutt adds a Status: header to the mail, to keep track of what's new/old/been read/etc. I wonder if this new header throws off Mail.app's synchronization between the mail file and it's cached information?

Yup. Seems like the addition of the header line throws off the Mail's table_of_contents file. After I've accessed the mbox file with "mutt -f mbox", I found that if I renamed or deleted that table_of_contents file, then when Mail is relaunched, it rebuilds its TOC file with no complaints.

I've only tried this with very small mailboxes. I do not know what the performance will be like on larger boxes.

Resynching Mail.app with mutt and POP accounts
Authored by: LouieNet on Feb 21, '03 11:37:45PM
To clarify, I was using mutt on the mbox file that Mail had created from downloading email messages from a POP account. This wasn't with IMAP.

Does a table_of_contents file get created within IMAP folders?

Resynching Mail.app with mutt and POP accounts
Authored by: bluehz on Feb 24, '03 07:30:58AM

I know this isn't the proper place to ask - but I am trying to use Mutt a bit, but having a hard time getting started. Soooooo many options to worry about. Is there a simple "quickstart" docs somewhere? I would like to work my way UP to all those options.... but not have to worry about them when I start out.
