Question Alpine configuration through Proxy

I connect to internet through college proxy with username and password.
I tried my best to configure alpine email client.
Can anyone suggest me how to setup alpine to connect through http-proxy setting, with username and password?

PS: I tried setting Environmental variable http_proxy=http://username: paswd@
But still alpine is not able to connect to internet.
My Linux distribution is slax-atma (a derivative of slax)
