Pine and ssh shell slowness?


#1

Anybody else noticing slow response for basic shell commands, like ls, less, vi, filename completion, etc.?

How, on DreamHost in Pine, can you access old mail on the web server in a non-default location like /home/user/someOtherMaildir/INBOX ? I’ve tried several server and path combinations for adding “collections”, but no joy yet.

Any pointers to good “pine speedup with lots of mail” howto is appreciated.

Use mutt?

mutt -f /path/toyour/mail

long time I had no used pine with LARGE mailboxes.

Mutt also seems quite slow when going from one directory to another. Maybe it’s server or network slowness, or both.
