- does anyone still use 'pine' ?


Actually yes. I have some servers with no graphical capability installed, and
which aren't allowed to send email. I ssh into them and use pine to read root's mail.

But another candidate for a lightweight mail reader that seems to have enough capability
is Claws.

Thanks again for all the suggestions and assistance. I have started up Thunderbird and it seems to be working fine. Learning its features like how to set up filters and seems to be pretty straightforward. Alpine (new version of pine??) and claws were others I might try out when I get back on an even keel and old emails and addressbook are installed.

Did notice (hard not to) that computer locked and crashed when I first opened T-bird, I assume because kmail was still running. Am now running both separately.

Is there an easy way to transfer old emails to the new system?

No if you are you using kmail. Each uses a different database system to store mail. Have a read in the wikipedia if you want specific details.

Many were saved as receipts, passwords for new sites, like that. I suppose I could store as an archive but then would not be able to open in T-bird I assume.
