12/4    /var/spool/mail/<user> holds our INBOX file. But where is our IMAP
        folders physically held?
        \_ IMAP a protocol used for online mail viewing.  By default, you
           don't have an IMAP folder unless you specifically ask for one
           (like you would get a uclink4 POP3 account). /var/spool/mail
           is the standard location on unix systems (/usr/mail on some)
           to store mail so I'm not sure what you're talking about when
           you ask where our IMAP folders are located.
         \_ it depends on a lot of things. seems like it depends on
            both the server, and the client.
            netscape4, for example, seems to somehow default to having
            server-side folders in your home directory. Which makes sense,
            after all. (caviate: I tried this on a sun box. I haven't
            tried it on soda.)
            \_ "caveat" is third-person subjunctive, not second-person
               imperative.  The plural is "caveant" ("let them beware").
            after all.
         \_ I have mine in ~/mail, so they're easily accessible to pine,too.

12/5    Anyone worked/contracted for Network Associates?  Any
        opinions? -sky
        \_ I have a good friend who's contracting with them  - they're slave-
        drivers in the extreme sense of slave. however, they pay pretty well.
        \_ uh, slaves don't get paid.
