NAME

splitmail++ - split mailbox files prior to indexing

SYNOPSIS

splitmail++ -pprefix [ file ]

DESCRIPTION

splitmail++ is a utility to split a mailbox file (or standard input) comprised of multiple messages into multiple files of individual messages to facilitate indexing with index++(1). The generated files have 5-digit increasing numbers appended to a common prefix. If the mailbox file has some non-mail header, then this is dumped to a file with the same prefix and _junk_header as the suffix.

OPTIONS

-pprefix Specifies the common prefix.

EXAMPLE

The command:
splitmail++ -p msg sent_messages

splits the mailbox sent_messages into files named msg.00001, msg.00002, and so on. Any non-mail header gets dumped to a file named msg_junk_header.

NOTE

This utility hasn’t been exhaustively tested.
