I have all my mail stored on a remote IMAP server (I beleive it's a
Courier server). Pine work fine with it except for the fact that I am
not able to search all my mail for mssages that contains a certain
word. I get an error message saying "Scan not valid on this server".
These kind of searched works fine with other IMAP capable clients like
Evolution. I really like Pine, but this prevents me from using it as
my default client since I need to be able to search efficiently. If
this is server related it's not much I can do since I have not
influence over what's run on this server.
Advice and pointers appreciated. TIA
You are trying to do a multi-mailbox search, which uses an IMAP extension
(SCAN) that is not supported by the Courier server. SCAN is supported by
the UW server.
A single mailbox search should work.
