Hi again,
Thanks for that - I don't quite understand though - does this mean
I can 'cut & paste' from the SIMS user mailbox into the sendmail mailbox
file? I did try this, but when I tried to access that user's mailbox from a
webmail interface & it said something along the lines of 'invalid mailbox
I'm guessing the term 'EOL' you use refers to End Of Line, or
Carriage Returns - thanks for the info.

Bye for now, Terry Allen
