To improve our email system we will internally migrate from the mbox to the
Maildir format. Additionally, the presently active INBOX and any other
mailboxes will be moved from
/var/mail (resp.) to
/ludd/mail/maildir. This directory is not accessible to your user; it will
thus no longer be possible to manage email by executing, e.g.
mutt /var/mail/username. Any other programs/filters that require direct file access
will no longer work. Management of email will only be supported via IMAP, POP3,
SMTP and/or via the web interface. A brief introduction to filters in the web
interface is available on the wiki.
The migration is planned for June 20th, which is a month away.
~/Mail-legacy-$(date --iso-8601=seconds). Any existing mail will be copied during the migration.
If you already manage your mail via the supported methods listed above, you can
disregard this email.
