Is something there the name of a distro?? (I've forgotten
the proper command, with 'release' in it,for asking a remote machine
what it's currently running.)
I just googled this part of that data: 2.6.32-042stab134.3
And I see links about RHEL, so that could be Red Hat, or it could be a
Red Hat-based Linux, like CentOS.
I rather like using "uname -rsvp" to find out the most useful data,
without all the extra gumph, but then I'm easily amused by bad puns.
It's past time I ought to've downloaded a mass of
emails) from my host's machine, stored them on some medium here
(Maybe a nice external solid state 2 Tb drive?), and gotten them out
of the way. They're slowing me way down.
I just use fetchmail to drag external mail into my local mail server.
Though I do that on an ongoing basis, collecting mail as it comes in,
and have no idea how well it'd cope with fetching a huge mail
collection (even if fetchmail is good at that kind of thing, it depends
on the other end, too).
With some CPanel based hosts, you can use an FTP client to browse your
entire diskspace, and transfer any files you own. It might be feasible
to copy a mailspool file, but probably not practical to do the scads of
files like maildir uses, and probably messy to work on copying an
active mail system.

Boilerplate: All mail to my mailbox is automatically deleted.
There is no point trying to privately email me, I only get to see
the messages posted to the mailing list.
Lucky for you I typed this, you'd never be able to read my handwriting.
