Calling all postage meter experts.

A postage meter was moved from a branch office in California to an office in Vermont. The machine has yet to be updated. Specifically, it still prints "sent from 90210" instead of "sent from 05602." Will the post office in Vermont return the metered mail because of this zip code discrepancy?

Hows does my package get delivered in China?

I sent a package to Beijing today. I addressed it in English, and I assume that somewhere along the line the address gets translated into Chinese script so that the delivery person on the ground knows where to take it. Does anyone know how this process works?

Smart mailboxes with only unreplied messages?

In Thunderbird, I can make a smart mailbox that shows only messages I haven't replied to, but I can't change the size of the text in the message lists. In Apple Mail, I can change the list size but can't figure out how to make a smart mailbox that only shows unreplied messages. I think I'd be better at answering mail if I could solve either of these problems. Help?

Sending mail from Linux to Exchange

I have a Linux box (Ubuntu Edgy) that I would like to be able to send mail to an Exchange server. It also needs to send/receive locally. Which MTA will actually allow me to do this and are directions for configuring it available? I've found lots of vague references but very little "program X will do this and here's how" kind of stuff.

UW IMAP mailbox compacting

UW IMAP stores inboxes in /var/spool/mail/[username]. When I delete mail from my inbox (using Apple Mail), a copy of the message is left behind in that file, and it gets huge, even though it appears to have actually been removed from my inbox. Is there any way to prevent this happening, or at least to compact it?
