Question Pine UNIX email -- old messages labeled "New"

Hi,
I have a question I know I've seen answered somewhere before, but my last hour of searching has turned up nothing (so forgive me for re-asking!). I'm using Pine on UNIX to check mail at a couple remote POP3 servers, and old messages in the remote inboxes are mistakenly labeled "N", new, continually -- once I quit Pine and come back in, ones I've already seen are still labeled "N". Is there a flag I need to set in the config list to enable changing the read status?
Thank you very much,
-- Sean O'C

Have you checked your clock and timezone environment variables? Just a wild-guess, but perhaps your files and your system clock are skewed or off somehow?
