Do not follow these directions until you have received an e-mail message from the IT Help Center informing you that your e-mail account has been migrated to the new Mirapoint server.

You will notice two main changes to Pine Mail after your e-mail account has been migrated to the Mirapoint server:

  1. You will need to log in twice. You cannot bypass this double log-in process: Your first login is to authenicate yourself to copland.udel.edu; the second login is to authenicate yourself to the Pine Mail program.
  2. The name of your folders will have a period at the end of them.

IMPORTANT NOTE
Learn about system-wide changes for e-mail disk quotas, junk mail filtering, e-mail forwarding, and "vacation" messages.


How to Log into Pine Mail
  1. Log into copland using the SSH Secure Shell application (or as you normally do).
  2. At the copland.udel.edu% prompt, type

    pine

  3. Press ENTER.

    Across the bottom of the Main Menu screen, you will see a second request for you to type your login name (see the following example screen).

  4. Type your login name.
  5. Press ENTER.

    Across the bottom of the Main Menu screen, you will see a second request to enter your password (see the following example screen).

  6. Type your password.
  7. Press ENTER.

    You should now be at the Main Menu screen.

  8. Press L to select Folder List.

    You will see the list of folders in your account. You will notice that the folder names are followed by a period [.].

    For example, in the following sample screen, the folder listed below INBOX is labeled saved-messages[.]. Each folder will have a period after its name. This change does not alter the way you create or maintain folders.


SPAM (Junk Mail) Settings, E-mail disk quotas, Vacation messages, Forwarded e-mail

    As a result of the move to the new e-mail system, there have been some system-wide changes in how certain e-mail procedures work. For example, if your account exceeds your e-mail disk quota, you will be unable to receive any new e-mail.

    You should log into Webmail Direct by going to https://mail.udel.edu and follow the directions at http://www.udel.edu/topics/e-mail/convert/syswide.html to

    • store suspected SPAM (Junk Mail) in a separate folder (rather than have it come to your INBOX),
    • easily view your e-mail disk use, or
    • set a "vacation" message.

    In addition, if you had used a .forward file to forward e-mail to another e-mail account, you will need to use UD's Network Page ( http:/www.udel.edu/network ) to change or delete any forwarding information.
