From: email@example.com To: firstname.lastname@example.org Subject: Re: [9front] List archives Date: Wed, 23 Mar 2022 11:49:55 -0700 [thread overview] Message-ID: <753CE532CBA2F3A6640D634F7E6B358C@thinktankworkspaces.com> (raw) In-Reply-To: <email@example.com> It should work but please keep in mind its 8506 files of mail It tooke me 10 minutes to run tar cvzf $home/9list.tgz /n/list/9front/ And I stopped it early with only 1067 files. 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 suspect its taking a long time, also you won't see data in /mail/box/glenda/mbox When you run upas/fs for lack of better word binds to /mail/fs/mbox On my laptop I run mail like normal to talk to thinktanktworkspaces.com and it shows about cpu% pwd /mail/fs/mbox cpu% ls -l | wc -l 133 but in another terminal on a different namespace that mounted 9list is reads upas/fs -f $home/9list cpu% pwd /mail/fs/mbox cpu% ls -l | wc -l 1063 So don't forget about namespace stuff.
