If somebody send me three emails,and one of emails with an attachment(abc.txt)  

As a linux administrator
(1) how can check the size of attachment (abc.txt)?
(2) how can delete the attachment (abc.txt)?
(3) how can delete the second email ?

Another question is, with sendmail server install in Redhat 8, if sendmail server was failure to  send email to the destination this moment, then when sendmail server will send it again ? Is it possible to change the time about retry to send failure email?


Thanks for your help !

Could you clear your first question some more..? like which is your mail client. if you are using redhat 8, "ximian evolution" is there. By using ximian evolution you can easily do your three quetions.


Yes, it is possible to resend your queued mails and also you can set the retry time by

    sendmail -q[time]

     Time is given as a tagged number, with `s' being seconds, `m' being minutes (default), `h' being  hours, `d' being days, and `w' being weeks.  For example,`-q1h30m' or `-q90m' would both set  the  timeout  to  one  hour thirty  minutes.

Ok
Thanks for your second question answer !

Refer to the fisrt question. Suppose my sendmail server hold a email address peter@abc.com. When somebody sent some email to peter@abc.com. (for example, The fist email subject is Test1, the second email subject is Test2 with abc.txt attachment, the third email subject is Test3.)

Then as a linux administrator
(1) How can I check the size of second email attachment (abc.txt)?
(2) How can I backup the second email ?
(3) How can I delete the second email attachment (abc.txt)?
(4) How can delete the second email ?

So you need to use either "pine" tool or "mail" command. it is better for you to use "pine" . it is  very nice tool to use in the CLI.

     To use pine, type the command "pine" in the console. it is a menu driven tool. so you can easily go through that. The full detail of using pine is beyond the limit of this session. man page is also available for pine. try "man pine".
