Deleting a message
You keep your Pine folders clean by routinely deleting messages
you do not want. There are two steps to deleting a message: marking
it for deletion and then expunging it.
To mark a message for deletion:
If you are looking at the Folder Index screen when you mark a message
for deletion, a ``D'' appears in the left column of the message line,
and the next message, if there is one, is selected.
Select and open the folder that contains the message you wish to mark
for deletion. If you are a Pine beginner, this message is probably in
your INBOX folder. If the message you want to mark for
deletion is in a folder other than your INBOX, see
``Moving between folders''.
At the Folder Index screen, select the message you want to mark for
deletion, or simply view the message.
Press D (Delete).
If you are looking at the Message Text screen when you mark a message
for deletion, a ``DEL'' briefly appears in the upper right corner of
your screen, you get an on-screen message that the message has been
deleted, and the next message, if there is one, appears.
Repeat this process to mark additional messages for deletion.
