Re: Pine question


Try editing /etc/{passwd,group,shadow,gshadow} manually,
(make backups first!)
then "cd /home;mv ian iehrenwald",
followed by 
	"chown * <on-every-file-with-ian-permissions>"
(* == iehrenwald | .iehrenwald | iehrenwald.iehrenwald ).

Maybe it is simpler to create a new account for iehrenwald on your
machine, then use it to do your mail.
