Function Documentation

◆ mbox_check()

enum MxStatus mbox_check ( struct Mailbox m,
struct stat *  st,
bool  check_stats 

◆ mbox_reset_atime()

void mbox_reset_atime ( struct Mailbox m,
struct stat *  st 

Reset the access time on the mailbox file.


if mailbox has at least 1 new message, sets mtime > atime of mailbox so mailbox check reports new mail
