managing remote email from console

I run Slackware64 14.1 (I believe? I do not know a command that echos the current version, I could look at slackpkg/mirrors... yes 14.1). For context, I am abstaining from gui for some time to learn more about my slack system. The question follows, from what address does alpine send mail by default? How can I check my remote gmail account from console (I believe thats the word I should use here, as in without gui)? Lynx does not render properly, of course. To some up, how do I configure alpine? Do I use alpine to check emails, even? Man page said so. Please, Help a newbie out.( I apologize if I have somehow offended a rule of the site. Point out my mistakes, "I can change!" ) edited for spelling and non sequitur.
