       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 ad-
       dress books into	remote configurations or address  books.   It  is  in-
       tended  to be used by system administrators.  Regular users should nor-
       mally use the facilities	provided within	Alpine.

       Local_file will usually be a user's alpine configuration	file, and  Re-
       mote_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  en-
       vironment 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  in-

       -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.
