PINE is a way of checking your e-mail using the "command line" rather than a web browser. Unless you are a *nix nerd (and thus already know the intricacies of PINE and are probably running the latest nightly build of Alpine on your MINIX box), it is utterly pointless. This article exists merely as an anachronistic reference to bygone days.
The last class to use PINE more than the web-based IMP [[Email#Webmail|webmail]] was the [[Special:Category:Class_of_2004|Class of 2004]]. Why it took otherwise intelligent Williams students until then to realize that other forms of retrieving e-mail are vastly superior in both functionality and ease of use is a mystery.
