Pine viewing Kmail created folders


I have set up a Collection List so that I can view in Pine or Kmail my email folders.

However my problem is that if I open a folder instead of showing the email headers, I see the standard 3 Kmail folders cur/ new/ and tmp/ and when I click on those I get a scrambled message header such as:-

1062537255.4416.XyWM:2,S I would prefer to see:-

Anyone know the settings I have to change in Pine?

Do I have to change anything in Kmail?

Try creating the folder as mbox instead of maildir in Kmail.

Thanks for the tip works perfectly. I have quite a few folders to create and then copy into and then delete the old folders, but lesson learnt mbox it is.
