Squirrelmail and Pine


Hi!

I use Squirrelmail to read my emails on my university account. However a few days ago, I decided to use Alpine after having logged through ssh. But now, I have lost all my Inbox messages in Squirrelmail...

In a nutshell, what should I do to get back my inbox in squirrelmail ? I won't use Alpine again, so I don't need to find a solution with Squirrel mail and Alpine working together.

Thanks!

The unfortunate answer is, probably nothing.

Most likely, you are using a POP3 account.

Squirrel Mail will always (by default) leave your messages on the server. Traditional mail clients like alpine will not.

The messages are likely still accessible via alpine on the same machine you originally used to access your account.

You could get them back ... sort of ... by forwarding them all back to yourself with alpine and then exiting without checking your mail again.
