26.5 View Maildir Folder


An archived email folder in Maildir format will have three subdirectories, cur, new, and tmp. If for example the directory .conferences.pakdd08 contains such subdirectories it is likely to be a Maildir format mail folder.

To view the contents of the mail archive use mutt:

$ mutt -f .conferences.pakdd08

Mutt will usually checl for Mail in your homew folder and ask to create an empty folder if none exists. It is okay to do so.
