NAME

crashmaint - Do maintanence on CrashMail message bases

SYNOPSIS

crashmaint [MAINT] [PACK] [VERBOSE] [SETTINGS filename] [PATTERN pattern]

DESCRIPTION

Deletes old messages according to KEEPNUM and KEEPDAYS in crashmail.prefs. The program can do two different operations on a messagebase, MAINT and PACK. The meaning of these two modes are different for different messagebase formats.
*.msg
MAINT deletes messages and PACK renumbers the area.
JAM
MAINT sets the Deleted flag for the messages. PACK removes all messages with the Deleted flag from the messagebase.
Both MAINT and PACK can be specified at the same time.

OPTIONS

SETTINGS filename
Specifies that another config file than the default should be used. You can use the environment variable CMCONFIGFILE to set the default configuration file.
PATTERN pattern
Lets you perform the operations on only some of your areas.
VERBOSE
Gives you a lot of information which you don't really need.
