  • This one-liner was useful in helping someone I know to get off of MS Exchange. `mailutil` proved to be a much better alternative than `fetchmail` or `getmail` in this case. It quickly moved all mails to the destination server (a simple Dovecot/Maildir setup), with no need to convert back and forth between mbox/maildir on the user's own system.

    mailutil appenddelete '{src.mailsrv1.com:993/imap/norsh/notls/ssl/novalidate-cert/user="username"}INBOX' '{dest.mailsrv2.com:143/imap/norsh/notls/user="username"}INBOX'

  • Not perfect but working (at least on the project i wrote it ;) ) Specify what you want search in var search, then it grep the folder and show one result at a time. Press enter and then it will show the next result. It can work bad on result in the firsts lines, and it can be improved to allow to come back. But in my case (a large project, i was checking if a value wasn't used withouth is corresponding const and the value is "1000" so there was a lot of result ...) it was perfect ;)

    search="whatyouwant";data=$(grep "$search" * -R --exclude-dir=.svn -B2 -A2);for((i=$(echo "$data" | wc -l);$i>0;i=$(($i-6)) )); do clear;echo "$data"| tail -n $i | head -n 5; read;done
