Re: Auto Backup of Hierarchy File

    Re: Auto Backup of Hierarchy File

    Yes, losing the email folder hierarchy structure requires hours and hours of work to re-create.

    Without a comprehensive understanding of the pmail file structure, I feared that a dated backup file might confound email archive, with possible loss of individual messages.  So, I have always re-created the file tray hierarchy anew;  creating filing trays and moving folders manually.  Because the incremental manual process takes so long, re-creation is often a work-in-process when the hierarchy structure crashes anew.  So ...   re-creation of lost folder hierarchy becomes a never ending task, to the detriment of pmail utility.

    Maybe restoring an old copy of the hierarchy file would be better than my never-ending re-creation of lost structure--or, maybe I have not read the clear directions for a simpler, more effective solution.  Yet, for my present understanding, loss of the hierarchy structure is terrible.  My hope is that v5, when it may arrive, is more robust.
