Read/Receive and Send emails on the linux command line - Alpine/pine

I like to use my command line to do most of the work rather than using GUIs. So I wanted to be able read and send emails using the linux command line. After done much research I have found this free application called "Alpine" developed at the University Of Washington, which the earlier versions of it was called "Pine".

To download you can go to the official website by clicking the the URL below

or if you are a Debian/Ubuntu user you can simply type in the command below

sudo apt-get install alpine

Currently I am using Alpine with my gmail account. I may be do a post about how to configure gmail on Alpine
