     Amanda: to use pop3 with pine, set your inbox variable in pine to 
something like: {pop.isp.com/pop3}inbox note the braces.
This assumes that your username on the server is the same as it is on the 
local system.  If it isn't do: 
It's possible that the server also supports IMAP.  In that case just leave 
off the /pop3 part.  Imap is much nicer.  It's even possible to set Pine 
to use all your remote folders as if they were local with IMAP.
