[CS-FSLUG] Followup: Console Mail Multiple Accounts

I had first asked if there was a way to make a Linux mail server act more 
like a client so I could use all my various accounts from the console.

This was a lot easier than I realized. It didn't require any particular 
server settings or server use at all. I had not realize Alpine had changed 
so much. The secret was setting up roles with the use of Drop Folders, and 
linking them to roles for the SMTP servers. Apline connects directly to 
each one with the proper SSL negotiation and everthing.


All I have to remember is hitting the '#' key to select a role for 
composing a message. I've always preferred Pine in the past, but Alpine's 
new featurs make it even better.

Thanks to all who tried to help me with this.
