Re: [vox-tech] merging mbox archives

If your old mails are in /mnt/home/en/Mail, and your new mails go in
/home/en/Mail, just `cp -ai /mnt/home/en/Mail /home/en/Mail`.  If you got
some mails already, something like:

   for i in /mnt/home/en/Mail/*; do cat $i >> /home/en/Mail/$i; done

should do it, given you don't have any files in /mnt/home/en/Mail/* that
has spaces in filenames.

Your mileage may vary.  Backup everything first.
