Using alpine


Composing emails

In the main menu, press C to compose a message. Attach files by moving the cursour to the Attchmnt header and Control + T to add your attachments. Alpine uses pico as its default text editor, and as such comes with a default spell checker that can be used with Control + T when the cursour is in the text body.

Paragraphs can be fixed with Control + J.

Saving and opening drafts

To save an email as a draft, use Control + O to postpone the email and by default will be saved in the postponed-msgs folder. To reopen your draft emails, press C and select yes to continue your postponed emails. Then you can select your draft and continue composing.
