(al)pine settings

Add or change the following settings into the file named .pinerc (please notice the dot!) in your home directory

  • user-domain=ts.infn.it
  • smtp-server=posta.ts.infn.it:587/tls/user=username/novalidate-cert
  • inbox-path={posta.ts.infn.it/tls/novalidate-cert/user=username}inbox
  • incoming-folders=
  • folder-collections=posta {posta.ts.infn.it/tls/novalidate-cert/user=username}[]
  • customized-hdrs=From: "Firstname Lastname" <Firstname.Lastname@ts.infn.it>

Please pay attention to the syntax and avoid undesired carriage returns.

If you like, you may add/modify the following line to .pinerc, in order to fix a problem that might happen when displaying the sent messages: sometimes the sender's address might be displayed instead of the receiver's. This can be fixed by the following setting:

  • alt-addresses=comma-separated list of all your e-mail addresses at INFN Trieste

For instance:

  • alt-addresses=Jane.Doe@ts.infn.it, Jane.Doe@trieste.infn.it, doe@ts.infn.it, doe@trieste.infn.it

Important note about subfolders

In order to access the subfolders of a folder, press the key ">" instead of "Enter", after moving the cursor on the parent folder. The "Enter" key allows to access the messages contained in a folder, not its subfolders.

If you have defined other folders...

If you have defined some specific folders in .pinerc, for instance as default-fcc, default-saved-msg-folder, postponed-folder, read-message-folder, change the settings as follows:

  • default-fcc={posta.ts.infn.it/tls/novalidate-cert/user=username}Sent

The example above is related to a folder named Sent.
