How to manually move the new mails from /var/spool/mail/$USER to
$USER's mbox ?
cat /var/spool/mail/$USER >> $USER/mbox
echo ""> /var/spool/mail/$USER
BTW, why do u want to do it. Any new mail is stored in
/var/spool/mail and all read mails moved to $USER's mbox. Any
spceific reason for it?
I am writing small prg, which will list the mails from spool. After
read that move the mails to mbox. But I want to make it read mbox +
Show the new mail with out reading the spool.
