Thanks for the reply. I store my mail in a folder. I don't use a mail server I had been using dial-up and that seems to be when I didn't have to enter a password when using Pine. I moved and was able to go with Verizon DSL. That is about the time I noticed I had to enter a password each time. The username is already "typed" in when I go to send, but I'm asked to type in the password each time.
