I use olvwm (open look virtual windows manager) in which i use a file .olvwmrc
which states:
F1 {
        Execute: 'xterm -e pine'
        }

F2 {
        Execute: 'xterm'
}

F3 {
        Execute: '/usr/local/public/bin/netscape'
        }

F4 {
        Execute: 'xterm -e tin'
        }    

this works very nice for me.
