Converting from uw-mailboxes (mbx) to Unix format (dovecot)
It took me by surprise how the mailbox formats had changed, when I switched to Dovecot which is the best IMAP/POP3 mail program, in my opinion. It handles large (enormous) mailboxes with many (hundreds of) users. Caching makes things go fast again.
Here is a simple bash utility, to take all users, and convert all mailboxes & folders.
for u in *
if [ -d /home/$u/Mail ]; then
echo "User: $u"
On Linux, you have a plethora of File Systems available.
There are two ways to find out:
- df -T (show mounted life systems, along with the FS type)
- file -s /dev/xxx (show more details about a FS node)
A set of internet tools, is available at otala.net/tools.shtml
- Whois & JWhois
- ENUM (e164.org phone number lookup)
More to come, as (if/when) I get time -- suggestions welcome
