Related question:  what is the appropriate mail file locking for
Solaris2.1?  I've seen various claims from various people on the net,
some stating that Solaris2.1 supports only lockf, others stating that
sendmail, at least, uses (honors?) a variety of locking methods.  Could
anyone summarize the locking done by (1) Sun utilities like sendmail,
mailx, (2) other email packages such as pine, elm, etc., and (3) hence
the appropriate locking for inc?

It doesn't matter what the other mail packages use since they have to
use what /bin/mail (sendmail doesn't have anything to do with the local
mailboxes on a system) uses.  What does matter is that the agent
performing your local delivery and your MUA are in sync.  Solaris 2.x
just uses the /var/mail/${mbox}.lock (containing the processes pid)
method and uses no system-provided locking primitives.
