Viewing and deleting messages
To view a message:
Use the I command in the main menu to enter the Folder Index screen. Use the arrow keys to highlight the message you want to view. Notice new unread messages have an N in front of them.
Press V (ViewMsg) or press the Enter key to read a selected message. You are now in the Message Text window.
To see the next message, press N (NextMsg).
To see the previous message, press P (PrevMsg).
To return to the Index, press I (Index).
To delete a message:
At the Folder Index screen, use the arrow keys to highlight the message you want to delete.
Press D (Delete).
To undelete a message:
Use the U (Undelete) command to remove the deletion mark at any time before you expunge the message. Remember: After you expunge a message, Pine cannot get it back.
A message that is marked for deletion remains in Pine until you expunge it. You can expunge a message that is marked for deletion at any time, or you can wait until you quit Pine.
To expunge messages marked for deletion:
At the Folder Index screen, press X (eXpunge). You are asked:
Expunge # message(s) from "foldername"?
Press y (yes) or press Enter. Messages marked for deletion disappear. If you do not wish to expunge the messages press n (no).
