We advise that you use the University of Washington's PINE, which you can access by running the "pine" command.
Setting up pine to read your mail on SD
Why do we need special instructions?
SD runs alpine 2.00 from OpenBSD's ports, which does not support the maildir format. Postfix on SD delivers in the maildir format. However, alpine can be configured to use IMAP to access remote message stores as if they were local.
Use alpine's Setup Menu to set your Inbox Path to:
replacing U*S*E*R*N*A*M*E with your own SD username.
Put this at the end of your ~/.pinerc, (replacing U*S*E*R*N*A*M*E with your own SD username.)
Alpine will prompt you for your password upon each startup (security features on SD won't allow alpine to store passwords).
