First, bmf is *amazing*. I've a a *couple* of emails go to the junk folder, but overall everything has been working great and I've only been working with it for a couple of hours...
I'm curious about two things...
- Is bmf *supposed* to default to using a set of .db files in your local directory?
- What is the format of those files?
- What if you wanted to view wants in those .db files, what do you need to do?
- If it's what I suspect and the .db are mysql files, how would someone switch over to using text files?
P.S. I mean't "I've had a couple of emails that went to the junk folder that were *not* supposed to, but overall it's been working great."
Note these questions were answered in the bmf-user mailing list. Short answers follow:
The bmf database files should be created in a ~/.bmf directory. By default, bmf uses BerkeleyDB format. It supports other formats, see "bmf -h". To convert to and from plaintext for viewing, use "bmfconv".
Yep, I know. I didn't know about the bmf-user list when I posted here. I now post to that list exclusively.
Thanks again for your help, Tom.
