How do I view my IMAP folders in (al)pine?

  • At the Main Menu, type S or select SETUP.
  • Type L, for collectionLists
  • Type A, for Add Cltn
  • Nickname   : Type a name for your IMAP folder list
    Server     : imap.math.ias.edu/user=<username>/ssl (where <username> is your login name)
    Path       :
    View       :
    
  • Type Ctrl-X (^X) to exit/save
  • Type E, to Exit Setup

You can also edit your .pinerc file
folder-collections=mail/[],
               "IMAP nickname" {imap.math.ias.edu/user=<username>/ssl}[]

where <username> is your login name.
For example, for the username ezeno, the line would look like:

folder-collections=mail/[],
               "IMAP nickname" {imap.math.ias.edu/user=ezeno/ssl}[]
