I have Linux RH 5.0 running over a Intranet.
I'd like to use my POP mail account on geocities,
but when using Pine, it doesn't work. I can send
mails, but I don't receive. (Isn't there a command
'Get Messages' in Pine?)
What am I doing wrong ?

You should set up Fetchmail for RedHat.. what it does is it fetches the mails from the mail account you specify and put them in your INBOX so you can read them from PINE...

if you want more information of how to set it up for your account.. you can do a man fetchmail ... make sure you have it installed already

the Fetchmail to work on a ppp connection
is my problem now. If you could help me again...
