Default Can someone help me with Alpine?

Is there a way of configuring Alpine to send my username and password to my ISP smtp server?

# List of SMTP servers for sending mail. If blank: Unix Pine uses sendmai$

Every time i send a message I have to provide my username and pass over and over.

You will also have to enter
customized-hdrs=From: Your name you@earthlink.net
This link discusses your password although I have not tried this

Have you figured out how to retrieve email from earthlink? I am just tackling outgoing mail.

Just got retrieving emails to work
I have a really old earthlink account and I have seen earthlink instructions that say to use
'pop.earthlink.net' instead of 'mail.earthlink.net' in the above inbox-path
