[PLUG] Re: Mail setup questions

Paul writes:

There is a lot of Pine info at this URL: http://www.washington.edu/pine/

Pine can be pointed to a remote POP server thusly: {pop3server/pop3}INBOX or {pop3server/pop3/user=popuserid}INBOX

My POP server is mail.dpagin.net. And, in my case I must enter paul@dpagin.net instead of just paul as my username. So, my config looks like this: inbox-path={mail.dpagin.net/pop3/user=paul@dpagin.net}INBOX

Here is a summary of config changes:

smtp-server=smtp.rcn.com inbox-path={mail.dpagin.net/pop3/user=paul@dpagin.net}INBOX

Thanks Paul. I am still having a mental block with this. Where do I make the config changes? Does this assume that I am using sendmail and that it is configured? Remember, my system is completely fresh - nothing has been configured since the default install of RH7.1 workstation. Is there any way you can provide directions similiar to: step 1 - do abc, step 2 - do xyz... I know this is a pain, but I just not seeing how this flows... On top of that, I am still lost as how to get my email off the pop3 server and into the inbox!

Thanks again!
