The '''Integrated Digital Enhanced Network''' ('''iDEN''') is a proprietary mobile communications technology from [[Motorola]]. It is a [[TDMA]] based digital wireless standard that operates in the 800 MHz, 900MHz, and 1.5 GHz bands. It combines the capabilities of a [[cell phones|digital cellular telephone]] and a two-way radio known as [[push-to-talk]] ([[PTT]]).

Motorola’s iDEN technology phones support many other features including [[Bluetooth]], location-based services, [[MOTOTalk]] and support for expandable memory ([[Micro SD]]). [[Sprint Nextel]] is the largest U.S. retailer of iDEN services.

Newer iDEN phones use a [[SIM card]] that is compatible with [[GSM]] phones for overseas roaming but iDEN is a very different standard from GSM. iDEN phones are not compatible with GSM networks and GSM phones are not compatible with iDEN networks.

Pine composes headers in the following format:

Date: Tue, 6 Mar 2007 11:10:36 -0500 (EST)
From: Sender Name <sender@host.com>
To: Getter Name <getter@otherhost.com>
cc: Other Person <somebody@somehost.com>
Subject: The subject text
Message-ID: <Pine.LNX.4.64.0703061056380.29699@host.com>

Using the function generate_message_id in the file reply.c we can see that the format for the Message-ID line is a series of fields separated by periods, followed by the @ symbol and the hostname of the sending machine. The fields are

  1. The word Pine
  2. A three letter version of the operating system name (e.g. LNX for Linux)
  3. The major version of Pine
  4. The minor version of Pine
  5. A number YYMMDDHHmmssX, Where YY is the last two digits of the year, MM the current month, DD the current day of the month, HH the current hour, mm the current minute, ss the current second, and X is either a zero or one depending on the number of seconds.
  6. The current process ID number

Note that the timestamp in the Message-Id may not necessarily match the Date line.

The hostname can be ROT-13 encrypted on some configurations. If the hostname is not defined, the value huh will be used.
