I'll be doing that just as quick as slavek can give me the apt-key 
command to install the trinity repo's key. Without it, apt won't do it. 
In this case to a debian 9.4 (stretch) install. After that done and 
trinity is installed, I fully expect to be able to have mc copy the 
whole corpus of email from wheezy's /home/gene/Mail directory to the new 
directory on the stretch drive. With my .fetchmailrc, .procmailrc 
and .spamassassin configs in place, it should just work.

apt-key ?????  Ah, found it, all I have to do is reboot to stretch, and 
find this web page:
