Post Pine / Procmail


Can someone give me some idea if it's possible to use pine for checking multiple email boxes (ie bob@home.com bill@work.com ) while just using one login to the console?
I've got multiple email accounts and fetchmail can be setup to get all the mails, but I don't want to setup multiple user accounts just to get the email.
Ta.

well, that's nothign to do with pine, just fetchmail. In fethcmail you specfiy lines like:

user 'acid_kewpie' there with password 'muppet' is chris here

so the mail downloaded for that account wil be placed in the mail file for me, and i can do that with as many different accounts as i want,

oh yeah, that's where the benefits of an open operating system comes in. everyone does there own specialised bit as best they acn, and they all tehn mesh together to make a really great system over all.

LOL, good one.
I was meaning that as an OH NO statement, not joy.
I guess I might be able to just setup a filter in pine to palm them off into separate boxes

Ok, who can tell me how to fix this up?
It doesn't seem to work, :9
The first bit is supposed to copy mails recieved to the mail.backup file, dont' think that works, and the second is to forward emails to elist to an elist file to be read in pine.

:0c:
$HOME/mail/mail.backup
:0
* !^To. *elist@mymail.com
$HOME/mail/elist
