Alternative For Setting Up Multiple Mail.Boxes

Another posting describes how to access mail.box to copy pending messages to
the new mail1.box after increasing the number of mailboxes for the server. An
alternative to copying the documents from mail.box to mail1.box is this:

1. Modify the configuration document and set the number of mailboxes to the
desired amount.
2. Quit the server.
3. Make a copy of Mail.box (ALWAYS have a fallback procedure.)
4. Rename mail.box to mail1.box
5. Restart the server.

When the server is started, any mailboxes needed that don't exist will be
Mail1.box will be left unaffected with the old messages ready to go.
