Thanks so much for the reply.
I have found my problem, but not "repaired" my problem... if that makes sense.
I did some more testing after I wrote the first message and found that when I
added two more names to the user database I was able to receive email for each of them.
As to your question, yes I can approximate what I see as I have been unable to
copy the data to an email to send.
When I do a find I see:
./cur> 1 438652h871/67656396755e.server1 2:1
./new> 1 375875665a/789255h2375a.server1 1:1
Again I am doing this from memory so the numbers and exact text they are not.
But this would indicate that I have 1 new message and 1 old message in the /mailder?
I think the folder may be corrupted or my data not right in my users db?
At this point I am ecstatic that the system is working and I am on to step 9.
Thank you again!!
