Using Alpine on MacOSX and with Gmail

Ahh… good ol’ Pine. One of coolest little mail programs.

Step 1: Get MacPorts

Step 2: In terminal:
sudo port install alpine
Step 3: Launch alpine.
Step 4: Go to configuration options. Set up the options, as follows:
User Domain: user@gmail.com
SMTP Server: smtp.gmail.com:587/tls/novalidate-cert/user=user@gmail.com
Inbox Path:
  Name of Inbox server: imap.gmail.com/ssl/novalidate-cert/user=user@gmail.com
  Folder on “imap.gmail.com/ss…” to use for INBOX [inbox]: just press enter here.
Final settings:

That’s it!

Sweet.

Note the potentially insecure novalidate-cert because Google’s certificate is considered invalid, and I didn’t feel like going and finding how to add this cert properly.
