Presentation Transcript

  1. PINE

  2. What is PINE? • PINE is a light weight yet very powerful open source console based e-mail client developed by the University of Washington. • It has enjoyed popularity among UNIX users that spend a lot of time using command line interfaces.

  3. Why use PINE? • As a console based e-mail client, PINE is perfectly suited to low bandwidth, high latency environments such as dialup connections and cell phones. • Since PINE is text based it is easier to ignore and delete text SPAM as well as Image SPAM.

  4. Installing PINE • (AL)PINE can be installed as a binary package for many UNIX / Linux distributions as well as compiled from the freely available source code. • There are also binary packages available to download for Windows and Mac OS X.

  5. Installing PINE • While PINE can act as it’s own e-mail client, for local mailbox manipulation PINE requires an MTA such as Sendmail, Qmail, or Postfix

  6. Installing PINE • Many users who do not run their own mail servers also use a mail retrieval utility such as fetchmail in conjunction with PINE to download remote mail to a local mailbox.

  7. Configuration • Configuration of PINE is done through the Setup option in the program.

  8. Extra Bonus! PICO

  9. Conclusion • PINE is an easy to use, secure text based e-mail client that is a perfect fit for anyone who spends most of their time in a command line environment.
