Fedora 22 + TMUX = broken reverse color char escape

Hi All,

Anyone else use Fedora?  I just upgraded to F22 and I'm beset by strange 
terminal issues.  One is broken reverse color when using TMUX (and 
TERM=screen, which is the default).  Anybody else see this?  All 
characters that should be reverse color are actually italic font, not 
reverse color.

I'm contacting Alpine-Info because I *really* notice it with Alpine. 
Alpine uses reverse color lots of little places: all menus and all notice 
messages, just for starters.  It looks very different, now.

Alpine isn't the only place this happens, so it's not Alpine.  Even 'man' 
is affected, and so is 'less.' It occurs with Gnome-terminal, LXterminal, 
Xfce Terminal, and the real xTerm, at a minimum.  How this got past 
*anyone* else, I have no idea.  Does this make any sense to anyone else?

(Setting TERM=xterm fixes this particular problem, but TMUX, unlike 
screen, reacts very badly to that configuration.)

Alpine on OS X Yosemite


Dear Özgür,

could you explain how to install ALpine 2.20 on a fresh Yosemite (10.10.4) 
install? I am new to Macs and OS X. I downloaded the binary you compiled 
from Eduardo's website (see below), but simply copying that to the the 
right location wasn't enough, it seems. Upon starting alpine, it complains 
about some openssl library not being found. Do I need to install 
homebrew/fink/macports or something similar?

> As a side note, 2.20 binaries for OS X are available at
> http://patches.freeiz.com/alpine/release/index.html. I built the Intel
> version on OS X Yosemite 10.10.1, and the PPC version on Leopard 10.5.8.
> They should be backwards compatible.

Greetings, Stefan

<sigh> The old, old "access error"


	I have a local Net access account with Comcast. When it began to 
offer IMAP, I signed up -- and started trying to access my Comcast email 
with Alpine. 

	Whenever I go to it, I get a minute or two of normal behavior, 
then the old bete noir: 

[MAIL FOLDER "INBOX" CLOSED DUE TO ACCESS ERROR]

	If I'm quick enough, I can delete the first four or five spams on 
sight (without opening any) before I get the error message. Then I have 
to hit L, <enter>, <enter> to get another minute or two of access. 

	Then I start getting the egregious "[No reply in XYZ seconds from 
server imap.g.comcast.net. Still Waiting]," with no way I know to get 
back into my email except endless waiting for a chance to hit Y (meaning 
yes, break the connection).

	I have a faint recollection, or maybe a cyber-mirage, to the 
effect that once, years ago and far away, there was a way to get out of 
this dead end. Am I imagining it? Or is it still usable?

Template colour style configuration?

Hi,

I just wanted to change *one* colour in Alpine, namely, to mark important
messages (flag ‘*’) as boldface. To do this, I apparently have to switch
to enable colours in the configuration first.

However, as soon as I do that, I am greeted with the most glaring ugly
colours imaginable, instead of starting from the soothing set of default
no-colours.

Does anyone have a .pinerc snippet that restores those, so I can start
from there?

Thanks in advance,
//mirabilos (Debian sid, in case that matters)

Timing?

Hi folks,

Is it possible to set Alpine to send a mail when exact timing occurs?
For example, how could I set Alpine to send a mail exactly at midnight?

Best practises for GPG / alpine integration

Hi list,

how would I best integrate gpg with alpine 2.20?

I mean, filters and some tools (ez-pine-gpg, Topal) show up on Google,  
but I'm not really sure which way is the "better" one...

Best regards

reply only to Cc:

hi,
When replying to a post, "reply to all recipients" sends both to the From: and Cc:
fields,  which is useless for a post to a list, as the sender generally belongs to the
list. To avoid that, I usually play with <CTRL-K> <CTRL-U>, but is there a way
to do that automatically?

best regards,

messages disappear from inbox


I installed alpine on my mac.

I am able to retrieve emails from my gmail account,
but I noticed that my messages disappeared from the inbox 
once I had read them.

I tried to get around that by setting up a save folder, if I 
quit Alpine, Alpine asks me whether to save the read 
messages on my mac and whether to delete them from the 
inbox. And that works most of the time.

But it is still the case that my read emails disappear if I 
reopen the inbox or if I open a different folder of emails, 
such as my sent emails before I was prompted for a save.

What I would like is to save automatically all the read 
messages that I did not mark for deletion to my local folder 
on my mac

Is my problem with Alpine or is it with Gmail?

I have set up gmail with the option, leave conversation 
unread when opened by others but that did not help.

Thanks for your help

Messages disappear from my inbox before I have saved them


I installed alpine on my mac.

I am able to retrieve emails from my gmail account,
but if I read emails and then reopen the inbox, the emails I 
had read are gone, only the unopened emails remain.

I tried to get around that by setting up a save folder: if I 
quit Alpine, Alpine asks me whether to save the read 
messages on my mac and whether to delete them from the 
inbox. And that works most of the time.

But my problem is that some messages that I have read but 
not saved still disappear, for example if I reopen the inbox 
or if I open my sent mailbox.

What I would like is to save automatically all the read 
messages that I did not mark for deletion to my local folder 
on my mac

How can I set up Alpine so that emails will no longer 
disappear from my inbox?

thanks for your help

smtp authentication to Exchange 2010

Hi.  Hope this list is still active.

I'm trying to connect to my university's smtp server, which requires
authentication, but it's not working.  I get back the error message:

Mail not sent. Sending error: 550 5.7.1 Client does not have permissions to send as this sender

Based on the info on this page:

http://www.cites.illinois.edu/exchange/2010/otherclients.html

This is the setting in my .pinerc:

smtp-server=smtp.illinois.edu:587/tls/user=mepstein

I've tried a few variations on this setting -- like setting the user
to mepstein@..., trying 465/ssl rather than 587/tls -- and
those didn't help.  It's also apparently recognizing my
account/password, because if I enter the wrong password, it reprompts
me -- I only get the above error message after I enter the correct
password.  Another thing is that I need to have them enable my
username to use this, but that's already been done (I was able to send
an email through this smtp server using Thunderbird).

I have a feeling alpine is not doing something right with the
authentication, like the specific username, or domain, or some other
detail of the authentication/credentials.  The server running the smtp
server is Exchange 2010.

Has anyone else got alpine to work with smtp auth on Exchange 2010?

Alpine roles not defaulting correctly.

I'm having lots of trouble with roles. Adding a role now puts the role
as the default. Hitting Y's just gives me the role and not the
"default". It's all quite maddening.

Any ideas?
