[PLUG] Mail setup questions

Hi all!

I need some help configuring my email on my linux box (RH7.1 with the completely default workstation install - gnome desktop). I have a pop3 email account for my incoming mail, and use the SMTP mail server from my @home cable internet service for my outgoing mail.

I would like to set up a simple, text based email client (like Mutt, Pine, Emacs, etc) to send and retrieve my email. I am not at all familiar with any type of Mail transfer agent, sendmail, fetchmail, etc.

Can anyone provide very verbose, step by step instructions for setting this up? As I said, I have not configured anything at all yet, and I have the default install of RH7.1. I really need step by step instructions, as I am pretty much a complete newbie to this still.

Any help is greatly appreciated!
