Pine 3.95 - How to change the "From:" field?

Post by Tomer Saa » Mon, 10 May 1999 04:00:00



I'm using Pine 3.95 on a Solaris 2.6 (text-only terminal).
How can I change the "From" field permanentely? I know how to add a
"Reply-To" field, but then I have to enter my email address every time,
and people can see the default mail address that pine gives me.

Please Help

Pine has to be compiled with 'ALLOW_CHANGING_FROM' enabled. THen you can
change your FROM in 'custom headers'. Get and compile a new version
(4.10).

I think we had this discussion... and determined the default 4.10
distribution has "ALLOW_CHANGING_FROM" enabled already.  That is, the
ability to enable it, as discussed in Option 1)

You will need 4.10, though.

Option 1)

In your .pinerc file, to the customized headers field, use:

Also to your .pinerc file, to the feature-list field, add:
allow-changing-from

OR

Option 2)

Learn to use "Roles."  From within pine, type (S)etup, (R)oles, then
(?) for information.

1. Pine 3.95 and pine.conf/pine.conf.fixed

Hello all,

Just a quick question for today.  I recently installed q-mail on my
system to replace sendmail.  One of the things required by this install
is moving the mail folders to the users directories.  System is FreeBSD
2.1.5-Release, Pine is version 3.95.

I would like to set up Pine to default to a file (Mailbox) in the user's
home directory.  I know I need to set inbox-path=Mailbox but for some
reason Pine seems to ignore it's system wide configuration file.  If you
specify the system wide file, it works fine.

I've got pine.conf in /usr/local/lib/ as specified as the default
location for the global config file in the man pages....  Where'd I go
wrong?

Thanks for any pointers!!

-Dave

PS: An e-mailed reply in addition to a follow up post is greatly
appreciated as my news feed isn't all that great ;)
