Pine

Pine is a terminal based email program. That means that you use it from inside a terminal window by typing:

~>pine

at the command line, where you'll get something like this:

It is a very simple program based on the 'pico' text editor. It does take some getting used to however. Its advantage is that it requires less internet bandwidth to work, so it's great for quick reads and access in remote locations. Lots of CCRMA folks love this program, so don't hesitate to ask around. There is no mouse interaction, but lots of arrow and single text key input for navigation and email functions.

Webmail

With CCRMA Webmail you can access your email from a web browser by visiting:

http://ccrma.stanford.edu/webmail

Type you username and password in the login field and you are in. If it's your first time using the program, it will ask you to specify some settings then bring you to your Inbox.

Planet CCRMA Email Clients: Evolution and Thunderbird

With these more advanced email clients you can read your email at CCRMA. Unfortunately, at the moment our IMAP server is woefully out of date and we are working hard to get this together. So, in the meantime please use POP or 'local delivery.'

SMTP Server: localhost

Forwarding

Since we are using SpamAssassin for spam control at CCRMA using the .forward system of forwarding is no longer desirable, because the .forward file is accessed and its function is carried out before that of .procmailrc. So, your email gets forwarded before it gets processed through SpamAssassin and filters. Forwarding is therefor better done in .procmailrc. See [1] for how to do this.
