Maybe this will help. I just configured Pine to send mail. (It can't recieve yet.)
Sounds good. That works for me!
If you use fetchmail, then you can try other mail readers with
Do you mean try something other than pine? Based on the above, Pine seems pretty simple. If other mail readers are simple, can you give their names, and maybe an example of how you get configure it (similiar to the Pine example above)...
My ~/.fetchmailrc file looks roughly like :
Ok, here is where I start to get lost. Is fetchmail something that is by default installed, say with my default RH7.1 workstation installation? If so, cool - if not, what is the best way to install it? Next, is that all that you have to do to configure fetchmail (I mean is editing the .fetchmailrc file to contain what you have above it)? How do I make fetchmail "run" all the time? I would want it to start checking for mail automatically everytime I boot up the computer... Final question (for now :-) - Once fetchmail retrieves my mail off my pop3 server, how does it know what email client I am going to use to read it with? I mean, can I use the above fetchmailrc file, and be able to use Pine, so that once I start Pine, my new email shows up there?
Sorry if these questions are very basic, I have just had so much trouble grasping this whole thing, and I finally feel like I am getting somewhere!
