It seems the IMAP server which is used with Redhat makes one 'mail' to save it's folder configuration (pine doesn't seem to be the problem).

I edited the asmail source so It displays right again. (As long as I am not really going to use the IMAP possibilities, or switch back to a normal POP server).

BTW: I would like to learn some X-Programming does anyone know a good source/turtorial I can take a look at to understand things better? I would also like to inderstand the 'shape' library which is used rather often for transparency. Then I could perhaps finally help with the AS devellopment. (The sources aren't very easy to understand for me now).
