lynx-dev lynx check mail

  I use pine as my mail reader. As most of you must know, mail has changed
in the last few years from having your e-mail in the local computer to
having it in a server (POP3, IMAP, etc). In my case our system uses IMAP,
and the way pine connects to the server is by a remote command execution
(rsh) of /etc/rimapd (or /etc/rpop3d) in the server.

  Because e-mail is not in my server I can not use the "CHECKMAIL" feature
that exists in lynx, so I modified my own version of lynx and wrote (very
badly, but it works) a small program that through rsh checks for new mail
in the server. Now I can check for mail while I am using lynx. The program
itself needs some work, but is anyone interested in seeing this, testing
or improving it?

  Please contact me either through the list or through my own e-mail
address, I'll teach you how you have to modify my program to make it work
for you.

  Have a nice day,
