I have followed the instructions listed at http://kapu.net/ports/pine/.
but I cannot activate pine in terminal. It is saying that it does not exist.

I have logged in as root and followed instructions. in step 9:
cp bin/* /usr/local/bin

I did it and it gave me this:

[localhost:/Users/mkwan/pine4.33] root# cp bin/* /usr/local/bin
usage: cp [-R [-H | -L | -P]] [-f | -i] [-p] src target
cp [-R [-H | -L | -P]] [-f | -i] [-p] src1 ... srcN directory

I don't know if that means that if the task was completed or not

Your system probably doesn't yet have a /usr/local/bin; in this case, first run

sudo mkdir -p /usr/local/bin

then run the cp command they specify.

After you've installed pine, simply type

rehash

and then

pine

Pine gives a main menu of commands when you open it (after the introductory screen the first time you open it), and also a list of other common commands at the bottom (there are many, just type o to get more. To set up Pine, type s for setup, and then c for config.

The configuration can be done much in the same way that you do it for Mail.app. If you have sendmail set up on your computer (to find out how to do that, do a search here for "sendmail"), then you can enter in "127.0.0.1" for smtp-server. Otherwise, enter in what you would normally use for this.

Then just type e for exit, and y for save.
