Archmbox, semplice archiviatore per la posta elettronica presente in Ubuntu 8.10 "Intrepid Ibex"

Archmbox è un semplice archiviatore per la posta elettronica. Consente una selezione dei messaggi in base a diversi tipi di parametri ed è in grado di visualizzare, archiviare eliminare o fare copia dei messaggi selezionati. E` scritto in perl ed è disponibile per tutte le principali varianti di UNIX.

archmbox 4.10.0 was released.

It's been more than three years from the last release of archmbox, and now here we are again. I'd like to than all contributors for their enthusiasm that pushed me to start working again on this piece of software. This release is not a milestone, and won't probably change the way you archive emails; by the way, there are some nice features that worth a try:

* option to customize the archive mailbox name was added
* support for logical and in regular expressions based archiving was added

The usual code cleanups and revisions were performed as well.

release 4.10.0

* option to customize the archive mailbox name was added (thanks to
Juergen Descher).
* support for logical and in regular expressions based archiving was
added (thanks to Juergen Descher).
* code cleanups and other improvents were performed.

Archmbox is a simple email archiver written in perl; it parses one or more mailboxes, selects some or all messages and then performs specific actions on the selected messages.
At this time archmbox supports mbox and mbx mailbox formats.

Four different modes are available:

* list mode, which is useful to list all selected messages before archmbox performs the real operations (archiving or deleting)
* kill mode, if messages should be deleted from the mailbox(es) rather than archived
* archive mode, to archive the selected messages in a different mailbox
* copy mode, to copy the selected messages from the source mailbox

Messages selection is based upon a date criteria; an absolute date or a days offset can be specified. It is also possible to refine the selection using regular expressions on the header fields of the message.
All archived messages are stored in a new mailbox with the same name of the original one plus .archived as extension (this is the default, but can be changed); the archive mailbox can be saved in gz or bz2 compressed format as well.

Archmbox was successfully tested on the following platforms:

* Linux
* FreeBSD
* NetBSD
* OpenBSD
* MacOS X
* Sun Solaris

A little hack is needed for Sun Solaris; please read here or the INSTALL file included with the distribution for further details.
Archmbox is a perl based script with no additional module other than the standard ones provided with normal perl distributions.
It has been developed and tested on a Linux system with perl 5.6.1.
Archmbox also uses some standard shell binaries: fuser, rm, cat, cp, gzip. If fuser is not available on the system, lsof or fstat can be used as a replacement.
bzip2 is needed only if you want to use bzip compression with archive mailboxes.
An external converter is required to handle mbx mailboxes. At this time support for mbxcvt and mailutil is available. If you use a different convert and want it to be supported, feel free to write me.

Ubuntu giunge alle nostre orecchie solo perché è stato mutuato come nome per un sistema operativo di successo; lo abbiamo sentito nei discorsi di Mandela, del vescovo Tutu, ed è uno dei concetti fondanti di quel movimento di rinascimento che vuole far fiorire il continente africano al di sopra delle difficoltà attuali.
