To man messages to read or delete with ELM o Mail
Posted on 2007-04-03
I am supporting an old HP-UX server. I need to see if some of the nightly jobs ran ok. I usually receive the status of the jobs via email and use ELM to review them. Things have been pretty smooth and I was lax in checking and clearing out the mail.
Today when I needed to check the status of the nightly jobs I discovered that I have to many unred messages. When I try and run ELM I get the following error message "Could not allocate 66804160 bytes for new headers!!!" and ELM exits. I also tried mail and I get the message "Warning: Too many letters, overflowing letters".
How can I delete these messages. I would be happy to delete everything so i can start fresh
Thanks for any assistance
