On this notebook, I am having all kinds of troubles with mail, both
fetchmail failing, and elm not working, (Not to mention X not working
again...) whereas everything was fine when I had the other machine on the
net. And on this machine before I reinstalled everything after the
break-in) Soo... since my ISP puts everything into a file called "inbox"
on my disk, I have a script FTP it to this machine, then rename the old
mail box on the ISP to inbox.old, just in case of some screw-up. I can
then read the FTP'd mail box with "elm -f inbox". (and a few more
gyrations to store it to folders, generate lynxable reference files, etc.
I can e-mail you the scripts if you like.) That does assume that
sendmail is working...
Funny thing is, when I nfs-mount the other machine's mail files, Elm
starts working fine. (I am using this machine as a sacrificial paper
wall, and pulling the ethernet plug between it and my network except when
I have to FTP data files back and forth.)
Pine? I tried it, and think elm is simpler. To each, his own...
