Do an 'ls -l /home/cajun/mail' before and after the tar run to
see if tar is correct. Does new mail deliver directly to this
Ok, will try this Les. Thanks. Yes, mail delivers directly to this mailbox.
As long as the file is just growing, tar should collect whatever
it saw at first to keep the length in the header consistent with
the data in the tar copy so it shouldn't cause a problem. The
error message is just a warning.
I would tend to agree with all Les. However, in this case, tar bailed
out of the backup. No tar file was written at all.
