Pine - 'a Program for Internet News and Email' – developed at the University of Washington
Pine is accessed by connecting to Paju through an SSH connection or the already connected eTerminals in the University.
See our SSH guide for help with establishing a secure server connection
From the terminals you can connect to the following University servers:
paju - student mail server
tols17 - information processing sciences students mail server
palkki - department of mechanical engineering machine
stekt1 - 76 electrical engineering department
KONE: - at the prompt, type the server name
example - connecting to IT services Paju server.
KONE: paju [Enter]
password: your password[Enter]
Then the Paju prompt will appear (ie. paju: (~) (12)%).
Type pine and press [Enter]. Quit by pressing Q.
Remember to close the server connection by typing: exit
You can leave the terminal at the KONE: prompt.
When Pine is executed for the first time it will be greet you with a Welcome to Pine message; asks if you are willing to be counted as a Pine user. Pressing return will send an anonymous (meaning, your real email address will not be revealed) message to the Pine development team at the University of Washington for purposes of tallying.

Pine displays the available functions at the bottom of the screen. The hat (^) in front of the character means you must press the Control (Ctrl)-key while at the same time pressing the appropriate quick key. For example email will be sent by pressing Ctrl – X.
You can save important messages under their own folders by pressing the S key. Pine will ask to SAVE Msg #15 to folder in <Mail> [saved-messages]. If you decide to save the message in a new folder (ie. pine-instructions) pine will tell you (Folder "pi¬ne-instructions" in <Mail> doesn't exist. Create?). Pressing Y or Enter will create the file. Pine notify's you [Message 15 copied to "pine-ohjeita" in <Mail> and deleted] Folder descriptions should be labeled so that its contents are easily remembered.
Pine mail may ask you to ”Reply to all recipients (yes/no)”. Be careful when answering yes to this question because your reply will be sent to all the recipients of the original message. No (by default) replies only to the original sender.
