Pine - a Program for Internet News & Email - is the School of Crystallography perferred tool for reading, sending, and managing electronic messages. Pine was designed by the Office of Computing & Communications at the University of Washington specifically with novice computer users in mind, but it can be tailored to accommodate the needs of "power users" as well.
pine uses Internet Message Access Protocol (IMAP) to access the mail server.
