Have used (al)pine to retrieve and send email from/to yahoo. The
I use alpine for all my email, yahoo included. On all of them I use an
Alternate pattern for the smtp. You can get there from S (setup), then
R (rules), then R (roles). The Role is Alternate Role.
You probably can simply edit the .pinerc file and change the line
starting with pattern-roles. It is generally commented out with a #.
Here is mine and obviously it is one line, but broken down so you can
read it here: (space after EMAIL" and after my name)
On first send an email, it will ask for your password and then ask if
you wish to save it for later use (or something like that). These
passwords are stored, encrypted in the file: .pine-passfile. Older
versions used to store them in .pine.pwd
Some older versions of pine/alpine weren't built to allow this password
storing and I had to re-build some older versions, but think the newer
ones are all built allowing password storage.
Incidentally, I have all .pinerc files and the .pine-passfile
permissions set to 600.
Can't remember whether it will create the .pine-passfile or not. If
not there you could always use 'touch .pine-passfile' and then set
permissions to 600.
Hope this helps.
