Thanks you are right... I've not noticed any problems. I must say
though that I use gmail's web UI and Alpine remotely. So with the size
of my mailbox I should have had problems.... but none. Using xubuntu
and installing each 6 month release i have found using alpine remotely
saves downloading all mail headers for an install and yet each time I
use it that's exactly what it does.
