  • An email tickler file setup for Unix users

    I read email with Pine on a Unix system, so I have plain text mbox-format folders. I recently wrote a short script in the Tcl scripting language that's set up as a cron job to handle folder rotations to implement a Tickler File for my email. The script has been released to the public domain and can be found on the Tcl'ers Wiki, if anyone has use for it:

    http://wiki.tcl.tk/13200

    Be sure to configure the first few lines for the location for your saved message folders and your incoming mail folder. You will of course need Tcl installed if you haven't already (some Linux distributions bundle it already); if not you can get from:

    http://sourceforge.net/projects/tcl

    Enjoy.

    I can't believe there's someone else out there who uses Pine!
