Versions of pine the patch is available for:
This patch allows you to add 3 other flags to your index and name them anyway you want. In order to do this you have to go to your configuration file and add in the line "custom-flags" your new definitions. You can add any number of them but only the first 3 will be considered. The format is very simple, just write something like: "L Later", to mean that you will use the letter "L" to flag messages, and meaning "Later" or "Read Later".
If you don't define the flags, they will still appear, and they will be called "Custom1", "Custom2" and "Custom3" and are simbolized by "&", "^" and "%" respectively. But as it was pointed out before you can redefine them giving them more suggestive names.
This patch should be applied after you have compiled pine (only version 4.21) and then recompile again. For other versions you can apply the patch directly over clean source and compile as you normally would. Also make sure that pine executes the new imapd daemon which will create, otherwise you may get into troubles.
A new feature starting in Pine4.31 is that you can have a message flagged using one of your new flags and have Pine not move your message to your save-messages folder upon quitting Pine. In order to indicate to Pine this, you need to prefix your definition of the flag with a "-" sign, so in the example above "L Later" should be defined "-L Later" (you should think of the "-" sign as a way of answering the question "Do you want Pine to move the message to the read-message folder upon quitting?).
