Package Space Applications – re-alpine

Overview

re-alpine, a Program for Internet News & Email, is a tool for reading, sending, and managing electronic messages.

Installation

Linux:

If you have not already done so, install the its-release package that grants access to ITS’s yum repository.

Then install as follows:

        % sudo yum install re-alpine-unc

Mac:

        % cd /opt/unc
        % sudo curl -O http://its2.unc.edu/dci_components/shared_apps/packages/repository/re-alpine/re-alpine-unc-2.03/re-alpine-unc-2.03-2.mac10.9.x86.tar.gz
        % sudo tar xf re-alpine-unc-2.03-2.mac10.9.x86.tar.gz

Files are installed in /opt/unc.

User Configuration

Follow these instructions to setup the package:

% cd <to_your_home_directory>
% cp /opt/unc/re-alpine-2.03/root/lib/pine.conf .pinerc

Edit .pinerc. You need to set  three lines.

If you are an Office 365 user:

smtp-server=smtp.office365.com
inbox-path={outlook.office365.com/user=<onyen>@ad.unc.edu/tls}INBOX
folder-collections=Exchange {outlook.office365.com/user=<onyen>@ad.unc.edu/tls}[]

Otherwise:

smtp-server=smtp.unc.edu
inbox-path={outlook.unc.edu/user=<onyen>/tls}INBOX
folder-collections=Exchange {outlook.unc.edu/user=<onyen>/tls}[]

substituting your onyen for <onyen>.

For Linux, make sure the disable-these-authenticators line in .pinerc looks like this:

disable-these-authenticators=PLAIN,CRAM-MD5

For the Mac, it should look like this:

disable-these-authenticators=PLAIN,CRAM-MD5,GSSAPI

For the Mac, edit the file  /Library/Preferences/edu.mit.Kerberos and remove these 4 lines:


default_tgs_enctypes = des-cbc-crc
default_tkt_enctypes = des-cbc-crc
default_etypes = des-cbc-crc
default_etypes_des = des-cbc-crc
