Pine

Pine

Pine is a program for Internet News & Email: a tool for reading, sending, and managing electronic messages. Pine was developed by UW Technology at the University of Washington. Though originally designed for inexperienced email users, Pine has evolved to support many advanced features, with an ever-growing number of configuration and personal-preference options.

Pine uses Internet message protocols (e.g. RFC-822, SMTP, MIME, IMAP, NNTP).

Pine's message composition editor, Pico, is also available as a separate standalone program. Pico is a very simple and easy-to-use text editor offering paragraph justification, cut/paste, and a spelling checker.

Pine is no longer in developed (but remains supported) and has been replaced by the Alpine client.
