Ah yes. I see it.
Is it this example?

proto pop3
username daniel
password yourpassword

To configure my gmail one could I just type:

proto pop3
username daniel.dalton47 at
password MyPassword

How do I tell it to remove messages from the pop server?
And then what about the smtp stuff do I set that up in alpine?

And how do I tell alpine to use fetch mail?

And how do I choose to use port 995 for pop and 587 for smtp?
And I also need to use ssl.

Thanks for all the help.
