NAME

       rpload - alpine remote data utility

SYNTAX

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

DESCRIPTION

       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  messages
                           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 contained within the remote pinerc should
                           be used instead.)

       -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
                           {my.imap.server}remote_pinerc.

DIAGNOSTICS

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