PINE : How to Start Using it ?
Miguel Marquina CN/DCI
PINE (the University of Washington's ``Program for Internet News and Email'') is a screen-oriented UNIX based message-handling (e-mail) tool. In its default configuration, PINE offers an intentionally limited set of functions geared toward the novice user, but it also has a growing list of ``power-user'' and personal-preference features. It is the system which will be probably supported at CERN as the ``standard mail tool'' on Unix systems.
You can find more information on this system:
You have two ways to start using PINE on your Unix node:
MAIL=/var/spool/mail); assuming you have the ASIS environment, simply type ``pine'',
1- export MAIL=/afs/cern.ch/mail\ /m/martin/spoolfile (zsh,ksh) setenv MAIL /afs/... (tcsh,csh)
in your login procedure or manually in the current window.
2- mailfwd "email@example.com"
to set up the incoming mail arriving to your workstation to be rerouted to your AFS mailbox.
3- type ``pine''.
