Greetings all, 

Thank you to the Bugzilla responded who directed me to this list--I seek 
help on how to install Alpine in my hcoop.net account.  I am a neophyte,
knowing some things internal to Pine, but very little about Debian.  
For the last 13 years I've used Pine, but that entire time my university 
denied us access to an actual OS prompt.  Now, the school is outsourcing 
provision of email altogether, and I would like to duplicate the arrangement 
that I had there, here.

I want to learn how to do this myself.  I will be grateful if the
membership could direct me to sources, in the sequence in which I should 
read them, to acquire the skills/knowledge needed to install Alpine.
I have tried doing this on my own, but I think that those sources
assumed a different setup than which exists here on hcoop.net.  Very happy to
correspond with any sympathetic mentors.  

Many thanks, 
David B

PS This is the first time that I've ever used mutt--it has nearly
defeated me!
