Alpine is a software I definitely recommend for those who like minimalistic applications that go straight to the point in order to get the things done. It's an email client, with no GUI, which allows me to read emails better than by means of the web page1 without any distractions, focusing on what is just important. It is also great that shows only the text (the relevant part of the email) and it can follow the links by launching the default browser.

It is simple, fast and perfectly suitable for checking my old inbox with weekly lists updates. It's inherited from an old project, called pine, and in Fedora it can be installed by:

sudo dnf install alpine

Then you just need to configure the email account settings (one last time to visit the page, but that would be the last :-) and you're ready.


Not for gmail but from another older account I have
