NAME

maildir2mbox - move mail from a maildir to an mbox  

SYNOPSIS

maildir2mbox  

DESCRIPTION

maildir2mbox moves mail from a maildir-format directory to an mbox-format file.

You must supply three environment variables to maildir2mbox: MAILDIR is the name of your maildir directory; MAIL is the name of your mbox file; and MAILTMP is a temporary file that maildir2mbox can overwrite. MAILTMP and MAIL must be on the same filesystem.

maildir2mbox is reliable: it will not remove messages from MAILDIR until the messages have been successfully appended to MAIL.

maildir2mbox locks MAIL to protect against simultaneous access by a mail reader. This locking system does not protect against simultaneous access by another maildir2mbox; you should run only one maildir2mbox at a time.
