Keeping folders clean
Messages, whether they are in your INBOX or your other
Pine folders, occupy storage space, and your storage space is limited.
Check your email frequently to see if you have new messages.
Do not keep too many messages in your INBOX folder. A large
INBOX reduces performance: it takes longer to display large
lists of messages when you start Pine, and it requires more time to
move between messages. Delete your incoming messages right away if
you do not want them, or save them to other folders if you do.
Routinely delete obsolete messages from all of your Pine folders.
You will get a message via Pine at the end of each month asking you
about your sent-mail folders. First it asks you if you want to rename
(and thus save) your current sent-mail folder. Then it asks if you
want to delete any sent-mail folders (and all the messages they
contain) from previous months and the current month. To conserve
space, it is a good idea to delete any sent-mail folders you do
