[quote]As of last night, my pine sessions are no longer retrieving new mail. they see the old mail just fine though. I can access things fine through my webmail and my iPhone, just not via pine via ssh to my dreamhost account.
I got an email about them changing my email server, but the advice was to make sure I was using my host and not dreamhost.com - and I already was doing this[/quote]
Maybe you already did this, but did you check the inbox-path setting?
To check the setting, from Pine main menu press S for Setup then C for Config.
Example settings given domain is example.com, and my mailbox user is firstname.lastname@example.org
hostname = mail.example.com
user = email@example.com
