Every computer on a network has a unique identifier. Just as you would address a letter to send in the mail, computers use the unique identifier to send data to specific computers on a network.

If you have moved your UIC email from Tigger to Mailserv, you can continue to use pine on either Tigger to access your Mailserv account. Use the move-to-mailserv utility to automatically configure pine up to display the contents of your Mailserv account. You can use the utility to do it even if you've already completed the migration. Just press Skip on all the other screens until you get to the last step, then click Reconfigure Pine.

As the text of these messages say, they aren't really email messages. They are created whenever you read your email with a program that uses the IMAP email protocol to handle your Inbox and other email folders. IMAP creates these messages, which it uses for internal record keeping.

You shouldn't see these messages when you read your email with an email program that is set up to use IMAP. That includes WebMail and pine, which use only IMAP. You can also set up Eudora, Netscape, and Outlook to use IMAP rather than POP.
