    I have 2 problems -

    The first being that in neomail - the default folder is the INBOX

    However, the INBOX is not displaying the received messages that are located in the inbox. Which is should do.

    The next problem - well not a problem but.....

    Does anyonek now of a way to merge 2 inboxes together.

    Example -
    account A has an inbox with 5 messages.
    account B has an inbox with 5 messages.

    I'd like to take B's inbox and MERGE it with A's inbox.

    Output--
    account A has an inbox with 10 messages.
    account B - I don't really care what happens to it as long as A has the messages.

    Is this possible?
    TIA

    should be possible. what you need is a command line for combining files. The inbox files are just flat text files. There should be a way to add the contents of one file to another. I don't know the syntax but would be nice to know what it is. Anyway ..that's what you need to do.

    this might work.

    # cat /home/user/mail/domain/emailsuer1/inbox /home/user/mail/domain/emailuser2/inbox > /home/user/mail/domain/emailsuer1/inbox


    That should combine both inbox files to the emailuser1 file.

    # cat file1 file2 > total_file_name_here
