How to configure pine in LAN connected in Internet

I am facing a problem to configure pine. My machine has no global IP, but it is in a LAN. The LAN is connecetd in Internet. The global IP, through which the Internet traffic of the LAN is passed, is known. How can I configure pine to send/receive mail?

Why do you think the lack of a 'global IP' matters? So long as your machine can reach the Internet then I can't think why there shouldn't be a problem, regardless of what the IP of your machine is.

Have you actually tried configuring pine? If so, what happens when you try and use it?

I'm assuming that you know the relevant addresses for your mail server.

Thank you for your response. My problem is solved. The problem was with the sendmail configuration.
