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,

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?

password error caused font reset

I run alpine inside a rxvt. This morning I had to open an incoming folder 
which points to a remote POP server. I entered the wrong password, so I 
clicked on the folder again (not sure about the exact sequence of 
keystrokes) ...

... my terminal suddenly changed font to a thin italic font, and the 
password prompt appeared on top instead than on bottom. It looked preceded 
by what looked part of an ANSI escape sequence.

I think I will apply the adage "unreprodicible errors will be considered 
as not occurred", but nevertheless it is curious ...

is it possible to display the content of multiple To: headers?

Hi,

I'm dealing with some messages that contain multiple To: headers, like

To: <alarm@...>
To: postmaster@...

Within alpine's index, only the second To: is displayed, so I wonder if 
there is a setting that would 'reveal' the first recipient as well.

Otherwise (as I'm interested to check all the recipients), I have to H 
into the headers, which is OK but a bit unconfortable when there are more 
messages to deal with.

If not possible right now: does someone have a suggestion about how that 
should (or not!) be patched?

Thanks in advance,

Iosif Fettich

[PATCH] Do not include OS and Alpine information in message ID

The User-agent is the correct field for this information, and Alpine
already has an option to "Suppress User Agent When Sending" which is
undermined if the information it hides is then embedded in the
Message-ID header.

There is sufficient uniqueness in the remaining fields, but in the
future it may be desirable to include some randomness as recommended[*]
for cases where the hostpart is not a global FQDN. I didn't attempt
this this though as I'm not familiar with random number generation in
Alpine.
