Configuring pine to read CalMail
After July 1st, 2009, department users can continue to use pine to send
e-mail through the astronomy server. Access to local mail folders in
~/Mail will also be unchanged. However, incoming mail will be on the CalMail
server. [Click here if you need to create a CalMail account.]
Here are the lines that you will need to have in your
~/.pinerc file in order to read incoming mail from CalMail. Use your
favorite text editor to make the changes.
where cm_username is the user name for the CalMail account to be read
When you start up pine, you will be prompted to enter your CalMail account
password before your can access your INBOX.
If you wish to use pine to view the folders on the CalMail server—.e.g., the spam folder—in addition to your local astro mail folders, modify the folder-collections setting in your .pinerc file as shown:
where cm_username is the user name for the CalMail account to be read, and where the second line is indented with a TAB character.
One can also add this configuration from within pine using Setup>collectionList>addCollection.
