At 125ms ping away from the server, and a dance of Twalk, Topen, Tstat, Tread, Tread (again! but this is a topic for another thread) and Tclunk for each file, 800ms per email, it would take me over 2h so I left it copying and went to sleep. It was done today morning. > I untarred in $home/9list > > you can run touch $home/9list/L.mbox > > upas/fs -f $home/9list > > and run acme with Mail like normal I skipped the touch, and I had to make sure the plumber was running, but it worked :) Reading the nupas.pdf document, it sounds like the whole point of the idx file is to let upas/fs work without having to read every single message file to get its metadata. I don't know if it being read-only would cause trouble, but maybe if there was a more or less up to date idx file in the server, this would be fast for everybody, without needing the local copy? Regardless, some clearer instructions in that website would do wonders :) cosarara
