Setting Your Inbox to be Your IMAP Inbox


In order to have your default inbox be the inbox on the IMAP server, you need to open Setup, then Config from the Main Menu of Pine. Use 'n' to move the cursor down to 'inbox-path'. Set 'inbox-path' to {imap.unc.edu/notls}INBOX. For example:

 {psi.phys.wits.ac.za/novalidate-cert/user=sergio}INBOX

Setting Up a Folder Collection That Resides on the IMAP Server


From the Main Menu, choose Setup, then collectionList, then AddClt. You should be at a screen that looks like:

Nickname  : 
Server    : 
Path      : 
View      : 
   Fill in the fields above to create a new Folder Collection.
   Use "^G" command to get help specific help for each item, and
   use "^X" when finished.

In this screen, enter a nickname which is the name that appears in the folder collection list. An example is: Remote Folders on IMAP Server. Then enter the server exactly as: {imap}. Your screen should now look like:

Nickname  : Remote Folders on IMAP Server
Server    : psi.phys.wits.ac.za/novalidate-cert/user=sergio
Path      : 
View      : 

   Fill in the fields above to create a new Folder Collection.
   Use "^G" command to get help specific help for each item, and
   use "^X" when finished.

Then select 'eXit/Save' to save your changes.

The new collection should now appear in your collection.

Setting Your Outbound Mail Server


This sets the host through which you send all of your mail to other people. To set this, choose 'Setup', then 'Config'. Use the 'n' key to move the cursor down to 'smtp-server'. It should look like:

smtp-server              = <No Value Set>

Choose 'Change Val' and enter the new value, 'psi.phys.wits.ac.za'.

It should now look like:

smtp-server              = psi.phys.wits.ac.za

Then exit the setup and save the change.

Setting Your Sent Folder


Sent mail under Pine is configured using the default-fcc configuration option. In order to have mail stored in a folder 'Sent' on the campus IMAP server, set your default-fcc to: {psi.phys.wits.ac.za/novalidate-cert/user=USER}Sent

for example,

{psi.phys.wits.ac.za/novalidate-cert/user=sergio}Sent
