Mutt and Pine can be pointed to any of the virtual mailboxes on your
server by editing the apropriate rc file. For those who are not sure how
to do this, we have somewhat automated the process.
Two scripts will configure your shell to read mail in pine or mutt, and
also change the mailbox to be read. They are usepine and usemutt. Simply
type usepine or usemutt, followed by the pop username (just the part
before the @ sign). For example, if you wanted to read mail for
firstname.lastname@example.org, and wanted to use mutt, you
would type "usemutt support".
Typing either of these commands will erase your existing configuration
file, and replace it with a base one that will cause the program to use
that emailbox as it's main spool. No password entry is required,
