Benefits: the automatic lookup function
* When IMP and Webmail are down, pine is usually still up. Thus, you can check your e-mail when everyone who doesn't know about pine can't.* You don't have to know very much about a person's name to send them an e-mail. You can just put "Sam" and it will turn up all the Williams people with "Sam" in their name (Samuels, Samanthas, etc.). If you put in someone's [[Unix ID]], it will come out with their full name and full e-mail address. For example, if you put in 07fml, it will turn that into "First M Last" <>. This is extremely useful.
