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.
