I guess I just don't understand the question as I save messages to other
directories regularly without a problem. Maybe it's because I use the
mbox format???.. Anyway,for saving - an S, [path]folder works fine; as
does E, [path]file-name for exporting. Both work with full or relative
paths, although relative folders are relative to alpine's current folder
and full path there is $HOME/mail [INBOX] for me.
