OK, let's test all this stuff out. We'll run through a test message to see if we get the proper results.
There. You've just sent your first Pine mail message. It should arrive shortly. (If you feel impatient, you can press ^L in the FOLDER INDEX screen to force Pine to check for your new mail right away.) You may read your message and dispose of it as you wish.
Well... That's about it for Pine. There are more features that haven't been discussed in this documentation. Use the on-line help to learn more, or ask one of your friendly neighborhood system administrators.
This document was originally created for the School of Natural Resources and Environment, University of Michigan, to aid SNRE's faculty, staff, and students in the transition from its mainframe based electronic mail system (MTS) to a UNIX Pine system.
It was envisioned as a short introduction to Pine and its most common uses. From speaking with SNRE faculty and staff, the original author found that people wanted documentation that would be clear enough for someone who has little or no experience with computers to follow, yet explain what was going on as well. It was first intended to be one sheet of paper, printed on both sides. As the original author quickly learned, Pine is a substantive program, with many more capabilities than had been documented. The once two page document quickly became 4 pages, then 6, then 9... Still, it is far from a comprehensive guide to all of Pine's features.
The document was subsequently modified for use on systems administered by the High Performance Scientific Computing Section, DCRT, National Institutes of Health. You are reading the HPSCS version.
