> Also, you can make a snapshot of your entire INBOX, then disconnect
> from the internet and read your mail without being distracted by new
> stuff coming in. One way to make the snapshot is as follows:
> Delete any Alpine folder called "inbox_snapshot".
> Move "into" the INBOX and "open" it.
> X [Check that no messages in INBOX are currently deleted and not yet
> expunged, because you will soon remove the deletion mark from all
> ; A [Select all messages]
> A S inbox_snapshot [Save all messages from INBOX to a new folder
> called inbox_snapshot, which is on your local computer]
> Y [yes, this is a new folder that I want Alpine to create]
> A U [Undelete all the messages in INBOX]
> ; A [Deselect all the messages in INBOX]
Why don't you just use the Export (E) and Inport (U) commands?
Also, maildrop might be useful to you, depending on exactly what you
want the snapshot for.
