Your ISP has to have POP capabilities, then you need a pop client. This is
as far as I got, because the pop client comes with very poor
documentation, and the ISP's docs are to access the POP server in a
regular way, not using POP to nab the mail a read it locally, but to
merely access the mail and read it remotely.

It's quite frustrating, I have gotten such a minute amount of support that
I've put my POP aspirations on ice for the moment. Let me know if you
figure it out!

I have managed to get my local copy of pine to send outgoing messages to a
queue, which then go to the ISP when I hook up, but even that works only
sporadically, and like POP, sendmail is also poorly documented (Unless you
buy a book, which is certain to be over 2 inches thick.)
