7/29    How do I get pine to work with mail? I have 1900 mails and I want
        to delete them. Or is there a better one to use? never learned
        'mail'..
        \_ mutt
           \_ so why doesn't alpine work? What setting should I use to have
              it work with my csua mail folder? Thanks!
              \_ Use of maildir and apparently a still-broken SSL cert for mail
                 ...seriously, alpine just doesn't support Maildir.
        \_ Reply from root. At least I'm not the only one having issue.
        As far as accessing mail, your mailspool is still accessible via NFS
        on soda: /var/mail/username
        Of course, this mount is only accessible via soda,
        so if you're not using alpine on soda, you'll need to find a different
        way.

        I'd give you more details on configuring alpine to read mailspools,
        but I'm off work soon, and I won't be near a computer for a while
        afterwards. You should be able to google it - sorry for not having
        clear instructions handy.
        \_ Thanks for the detailed reply. I was able to delete my mails via
           mutt. Nice program. -op

3/10    What email program do people in Cal CS use nowadays?  In my school days
        people used /usr/bin/mail, then RMail in emacs, then VMail in emacs.
        After my days people used Elm, Pine, Mutt (I forgot which order).  In
        my first two jobs we could tell the seniority of fellow engineers based
        on which email program they use at work, because everyone used what
        they used to use in their school years.  In my last two jobs though,

2/20    There was a failure validating the SSL/TLS certificate for the server
                                          <DEAD>mail.csua.berkeley.edu<DEAD>
        The reason for the failure was
                          self signed certificate in certificate chain (details)
        We have not verified the identity of your server. If you ignore this certificate validation
        problem and continue, you could end up connecting to an imposter server.

          \_ alpine not working. are there any config instructions
                for using alpine with csua?

12/9    Does anyone know of a good blogging software that can
        handle blogging entries as well as photo albums?
        Wordpress and the WP Gallery plugin is too tricky to
        configure easily. And please don't mention Facebook!
        \_ Why not just use Blogger and Flickr/Picasa or whatever?  -tom

9/22    Gmail's "conversation feature" drives me nuts! Is there a way to
        disable that and make Gmail act like every other e-mail client on the
        planet? WTF thought this was a nice thing to have on by default?
        \_ Umm, why don't you just use another email service then...
           \_ Umm, I do, which is how I have something to compare to. I get
              mail in at least 4 places only one of which is Gmail. I
