Pine Folders

Pine uses by default ~/mail to store its own folders, and the INBOX folder is referencing my mbox folder.

I use gotmail to get my Hotmail until people stop sending me email. All Hotmail email goes to ~/Hotmail/Inbox .

Using Mutt it is easy to check the mail folder as you can physically type in the path.

With Pine it seems a little more complicated, does anyone know the syntac I should use to Add this folder, when ever I try it just says it already exists.

I know I am probably doing something stupid!!!!!!

I had the same problem with some IMAP folders and the way I solved (thanks to a friend) was to directly add the lines to the .pinerc files

the sintax is something like

folder-collections= MAIL/mail[], YOURNICK {server/options}path.[]

Hope this works...

I think your server is going to be just empty (if you get your mail before) and path should be something like /HOTMAIL.[]
