scanning /var/mail/username
Authored by: geoffsaulnier on Nov 14, '01 05:56:44PM

How do you get Mail.app to do this? I have everything configured in 10.1 the same as it was in 10.04, except that in 10.04 I had a mailbox named ACTIVE and that was the only way I could get it to pull the mail from /var/mail/username.

Under 10.1, it keeps sticking a mailbox called INBOX in there. If i rename it to ACTIVE, it makes ACITVE a folder and then creates a new, empty INBOX.

This is driving me crazy - sendmail is correctly dumpin the mail in /var/mail for each user, but Mail.app cannot read it?!!!?!?!

Any workarounds? Any correct solutions? What am I doing wrong? Someone please help me!

Thanks.
Geoff.
