       rpload - alpine remote data utility

       rpload [ -f ] [ -s trimSize ] -t Type -l Local_file -r Remote_folder

       Rpload  may  be  used  to  convert  local Alpine configuration files or
       address books into remote  configurations  or  address  books.   It  is
       intended  to  be  used  by system administrators.  Regular users should
       normally use the facilities provided within Alpine.

       Local_file will usually be a  user's  alpine  configuration  file,  and
       Remote_folder  is  the IMAP folder which will be used (with the help of
       Alpine's -p, -P, and -x commands  or  PINECONF,  PINERC,  and  PINERCEX
       environment  variables)  as  the user's remote configuration folder.  A
       copy of Local_file will be placed in the folder with the correct header
       lines to satisfy Alpine.

       -f                  Force  the load even if the remote folder is in the
                           wrong format.  This will delete the contents of the
                           folder so use it carefully.

       -s trimSize         If  the  number of messages in the remote folder is
                           more than one plus trimsize (one is for the  header
                           message),  then  messages  2,  3, and so on will be
                           deleted until there are only one plus trimsize mes-
                           sages  left.  If this option is not set no trimming
                           will be done.

       -t Type             The possible Types  are  pinerc,  abook,  and  sig.
                           (Sig  is  mostly  obsolete. Literal signatures con-
                           tained within the  remote  pinerc  should  be  used

       -l Local_file       The file on this system that is to be copied.

       -r Remote_folder    A  remote  folder  name  to  be copied to.  See the
                           Alpine documentation for the  syntax  of  a  remote
                           folder name.  One example is

       Exit status is zero if all goes well, -1 otherwise.
