I was trying to do some things to see the emails.  My inbound and
outbound are the default /var/spool/mqueue and /var/spool/mqueue.in

Will someone give me some tips on how to manually manipulate the emails?
My Inbound and Outbound links in MailWatch show nothing on the page so I
am not able to see what is in them.  

How does someone copy/move the emails from mqueue into a mailbox so that
one can sift through them?  As I am wanting to see what is in these
emails because people are wondering about specific emails and I want to
at least make sure that I got them.
