comment Copying ISO file to USB drive in OS X?
I've been trying to use dd to copy a Windows 7 install DVD to a partition on a USB disk, but it always results in an unmountable partition, any ideas why this would be? The data appears to copy without any issues, and the source image is a .dmg, and the partition is already FAT32 (not sure if that part matters?) but the finished partition just won't mount anything.

Ah, I didn't think of using a terminal client just to track unread messages, but that could definitely work. I've figured out how to do the same with Applescript for OS X's mail, but as has been pointed out it would require the other user to be signed in as Mail would need to be running, so a terminal client seems the best option. I'll give mail a try first and investigate mutt if I have any trouble!

I need to deleted all mail older than X days that aren't in my inbox or archive folders (or drafts, junk, sent and trash, since they're covered already). I've discovered that AppleScript can access all messages in Mail, and that messages have a read/write of deleted status, anyone know if setting this to true will work to delete messages?

@Buscar웃 Yeah I have, but they only seem to execute on new messages, so I'm not sure if it actually does anything. Besides which, my criteria for what to delete can't be met by a rule (I want to delete old messages from all folders except a select few)
