However, it doesnt tell me how to change the envelope(!)-from for the smtp conversation.
Sorry, it was not pine's fault. As an strace showed, pine sent the correct envelope-address, but exim rewrote it to something stupid. Now i use postfix instead, and it works as wanted.
P.S.: Contents and looks of your pages are great!
(note that that's actually just a chapter out of the O'Reilly SSH book)
If you have SSH access to your IMAP server and have setup PublicKeyAuthentication (or another password-less authentication) then this is a great alternative to connecting to IMAP directly.
If your IMAP server supports SSL or TLS, then this is not important. However, if you have an IMAP server that does not support secure connections, then using SSH to kick off a pre-authenticated IMAPd works great. (and is not difficult to setup; PINE's rsh-* and ssh-* setup is very elegant)
I notice that other e-mail clients (for example, Evolution) promote their own versions of this feature heavily. PINE doesn't say much about it. Maybe you could?
The ssh method that PINE uses in its ssh-* and rsh-* configuration directives actually starts remote shells that kick off imapd's directly (rather than connecting via IMAP directly).
Anyway I enjoyed it.
use Pine in full-screen "console"
mode, because when I telnet in
to my account on a free-net unix
computer, the version of Pine
that runs there shows up on my
Windows computer full-screen,
entirely in black and white, which
is the way I like it. Is there
any way I can get PC-Pine to run
on my Windows computer this way?
