Ah yes - I remember it well.
Actually, I preferred the MMDF style for storing mails to the standard mbox
style (a line of ^A's is much better than whatever it is mbox
uses). Not that I played much with mbox - not long after I joined
Medianet fulltime we bought a nice little netapp and started using Maildir
- - which is a huge improvement on the horrible, nasty, disgusting mbox
format (imagine dealing with a customer who kept emailing himself 3MB files).
