mail - stops listing after 34 lines with a "?"
 
Hope all is well with you and yours.

I have a quick Linux mail question.

I need to get some data from all received mail and load it into the PostgreSQL DB. I use fetchmail to get them from a remote server and they go to /var/mail/abruck

There are 2 lines that I need from each email: Date and Subject.

When I just type "mail" to get the mail content, I get exactly what I want:

?

except that it stops after 34 lines with a "?"

How can I get ALL the emails without stopping every 34 lines with a "?". I want go > it all into one file.

Greatly appreciate your time and efforts ...
