Having got my debian pine 3.96 working correctly, the university has
upgraded their IMAP server from a beta version to a production version. The
effect is that my client can no longer read the inbox correctly. I get
various access errors and bogus times of 0/0/70 0:0:0 +0000. Without the
debug files, it's difficult to pinpoint what's going on, and I get no
help from the server end as pine is not supported. However, their pine
3.91 client does seem to work, so for the time being I shall give up on
the debian version, unless someone has already encountered this problem
and can suggest a fix.
