Use Fetchmail to get the mail from your pop server to your computer. The 
easiest way to use fetchmail is to write a configuration file called 
.fetchmailrc which you put in your home directory. Type man fetchmailrc to 
learn how to write it.

With regard to the Alpine configuration, you move with your up and down 
arrows and read the instructions at the bottom of the screen. If you, for 
example, are required to type in something like the name of your smtp 
server, your hit "c" for change which will put your cursor in the input 
field. Finish off with <enter>.

Good luck!
