I have elm running on hp-ux. Sendmail is running. Our office uses ms exchange for a mail server. I can send mail to my exhange account by sending mail to me@mymaildomain.com.   What do I need to do to get mail from exchange using elm.
(I was using Netscape mail & I set the smtp server to mail@domain.com now I want the same result using elm)

As far as I know elm can only read mail from the local mail spool on the machine elm is running on. It does not support POP or IMAP for accessing a remote mail server and thus can't be used to read mail from your exchange server.

As a text terminal mail client Pine does support IMAP and it could be configured to access your Exchange server.

Loaded pine & it wouldn't run: said "can't open terminal capabilities database"
Loaded mutt & got it to work
So  jlevie saved me wasting time on elm.
Pine goes into the "software that almost sort of works" bin.

It sounds like the copy of Pine you tried to use may not match up with your system. That error indicates that the  terminal capabilities method that copy of Pine was built with (terminfo or termcap) isn't supported on your system. You could probably get it to work by building a copy from source with the correct configure options.
