what a way to start a great morning. anyway managed to find out why the backup imap files are showing up as a bunch of empty emails yesterday (no header data, so subject and to fields are annoyingly empty.). chown'in the imap user dir to its rightful owner did the trick.
onwards to trying out a new webmail imap client. previously used horde. but attracted to the oven fresh goodness of hula and zimbra. downloading the sources as we speak. google seems to indicate uphill wrestling building those two on FreeBSD. but a rather nice excuse to refresh unix build debugging skills.
back to my stiff neck. hurts like hell. crossing mmy fingers salonpas would help a bit.
