I am using pine on a KUbuntu linux email server to check my emails. Most of the time when I am under "Inbox", the list of emails is updated automatically so I don't have to do things like pushing the refresh button when I am under web. But sometimes it does not and I have to type "<" to go to the upper level and then select "Inbox" to enter again into the inbox directory to find out that I do receive new emails that are not shown previously. I was wondering what the problem is?

Thanks and regards!

This question came from our site for system and network administrators.

Hmm hmm. What about Alpine? By the way turning back to pine.. I'd go with source.
apt-get build-dep pine # will grab all the build dependencies
Download pine from the official homepage and use the old method. (Maybe Debian/Ubuntu applied some patch which made this.)
