This approach seems only to process the first email in the mbox file-
so youll only get a couple of entries in the db from that.

309 bytes is v. small, so it probably only has a couple of entries in

It is just a text file so you can just less or cat it to see.

the solution, don't know, maybe a script to feed it one message at a time
from your mbox till all the msgs have been processed.

Hope this helps, Josh
