Attaching a file in Pine
When composing a message, move your cursor to the "Attchmnt:" line. Press Ctrl-J.
Using Pine's "To Files" key (Ctrl-T), go to the files on your computer; select the one you would like to attach. The file must be on the computer running Pine. You also have the option of typing in the full path name at the "Attchmnt:" line.
After you find the file, highlight it by press arrow keys, then press S to select it.
Deleting an Attachment in Pine
In Pine, message attachments can be deleted without removing the entire message. This is accomplished by marking the undesired attachment for deletion and saving the message to a folder. Attachments marked for deletion are excluded from the message when it is saved.
The associated attachments of a message are viewed by pressing > or V, opening the ATTACHMENT INDEX. The undesired attachments can be marked for deletion by pressing D.
To exit out of the ATTACHMENT INDEX press <. To actually remove the attachment the message must be saved. Pressing S in the MESSAGE INDEX will display the following warning message:
Saved copy will NOT include entire message! Continue?
If you are sure you want to save the message and exclude the marked attachments, press Y for yes.
