Anyone having issues w/ pine/alpine?


#1

For the last couple of days, pine (really, Alpine) via my ssh login has been completely unusable. Out of many connection attempts, only once has it succeeded. IMAP timeouts, extremely slow password acquisitions such that they time out, etc.

Is this just me or are other people experiencing this?

Yes, I am having similar issues. I would guess there are not a lot of people using pine/alpine anymore :frowning:

I run alpine, it says “Opening Inbox” with some dancing ASCII. rsh to server timed out.

Or I get strange terminal problems (using putty) where the password prompt shows up funny, or I see both the spinning ASCII stuff AND a password prompt, etc etc.

Strangely I just tried it and it worked for the first time in about a week.
