[Alpine-info] Alpine pword no longer working
fleet at teachout.org

I just "updated" Alpine via YUM. If I invoke Alpine with `alpine
-passfile ~/.pword` I get the following:
To : /home/fleet/.pword at localhost.localdomain
----- Message Text -----
No menu. ~/.pword exists; but if viewed with a text reader the contents
appear to be total gibberish.
If I invoke Alpine without attempting to use -passfile, I get the menu as
normal; but I have to enter a password to send mail.
How do I restore, if I need to, .pword or get `alpine -passfile ~/.pword`
to work properly?
And why isn't the -passfile option listed in the Alpine man pages?
