       rpload - alpine remote data utility

       rpload [ -f ] [ -s trimSize ] -t Type -l Local_file -r Remote_folder

       Rpload may be used to convert local Alpine configuration files or
       address books into remote configurations or address books.  It is
       intended to be used by system administrators.  Regular users should
       normally use the facilities provided within Alpine.

       Local_file will usually be a user's alpine configuration file, and
       Remote_folder is the IMAP folder which will be used (with the help of
       Alpine's -p, -P, and -x commands or PINECONF, PINERC, and PINERCEX
       environment variables) as the user's remote configuration folder.  A
       copy of Local_file will be placed in the folder with the correct header
       lines to satisfy Alpine.

       -f                  Force the load even if the remote folder is in the
                           wrong format.  This will delete the contents of the
                           folder so use it carefully.

       -s trimSize         If the number of messages in the remote folder is
                           more than one plus trimsize (one is for the header
                           message), then messages 2, 3, and so on will be
                           deleted until there are only one plus trimsize
                           messages left.  If this option is not set no
                           trimming will be done.

       -t Type             The possible Types are pinerc, abook, and sig.
                           (Sig is mostly obsolete. Literal signatures
                           contained within the remote pinerc should be used

       -l Local_file       The file on this system that is to be copied.

       -r Remote_folder    A remote folder name to be copied to.  See the
                           Alpine documentation for the syntax of a remote
                           folder name.  One example is

       Exit status is zero if all goes well, -1 otherwise.
