I am not running Linux locally, but using cygwin to ssh into linux boxes
at the university. I use Alpine on the university boxes to read email.
At some point, in the last month or two, something must have changed in
the configuration of Alpine, but I cannot seem to track it down. My
folder list has disappeared.
I mean, if I hit l to bring up my folder list, the only thing that now
shows is INBOX, where it used to show a whole list of folders.
The behavior gets much more weird though. If I use the g command to go-to
a folder, and I try and tab complete the folder name, it fails with Folder
not Found. However, if I type the whole folder name in, I can then go to
If I attempt to save a message from my inbox to a folder, it fails even if
I type the entire folder name in. Gives me, Folder not found, create it
I don't know what changed, and the system administrators have been slow in
getting back to me. Any ideas from the group?
