Why do you have Pine and Alpine as two different options? They're basically the same. The only command line email client I've ever used is Alpine.. it does the job well enough for me, so I've had no reason to use another. Edit: I'm using Alpine with getmail (before, I was using it with Fetchmail and Sendmail).
Didn't have any issues (after reading some howto's) setting it up for multiple accounts. I also have quite a few entries in ~/.mailcap to handle various file types in the email (html - Dillo, images - feh, pdf - xpdf, etc).
I remember using Pine in the mid 1990's, but I haven't used it recently.
I'm discovering the benefits of using CLi (almost) only. Aren't there any more users who use CLI email?
I used to configure all the software on all my boxes properly. Now I don't have to. I just keep the main
box configured as I want it to be. The rest is ssh....
