7. Receiving an attached file

If someone sends you a mail message with an attached file, the line “Parts/attachments” will appear in the mail header. To save an attachment:

  1. Read the message as usual.

    See Reading your mail, above.

  2. Type > (view attachments).

    Then use the cursor keys to move the highlighted line to the attachment you want to save.

  3. Type S to save the attachment.

    Pine will prompt you with the message “Copy attachment to file in home directory:”. Type a file name and the attachment will be saved in a file by that name.
