[farmshare-discuss] I am using both "Alpine" and "OUTLOOK2013" RE: Alpine on Farmshare

Hello Jonathan,

In the following way, I am using both "Alpine" and "Outlook2013":

1) To use Alpine:  
     I first login to cardinal using ssh.  As usual this requires a SUNetID, a password,  and a one-time passcode.
      Having logged in,  and using a configuration file which I attach (In order to attach it, I renamed it "pinerc";  It should be installed with the      name ".pinerc" )  .

2)From my windows-10 machine (the one I used for 1) above I have installed Outlook2013 in the most ordinary way.
    I have had no problem using Outlook (both directly and via the Web(With Firefox).

  I occasionally find Alpine very useful,  but I use it now only occasionally and only in simple ways in which the problems referred to may not occur.  I am glad that Alpine continues to be available to me and hope that it will continue to be available.

Subject: [farmshare-discuss] Alpine on Farmshare


We have a couple of users who are trying to use Alpine on the old, legacy FarmShare system (cardinal).  In trying to duplicate their issues, we are finding a situation where these instructions
aren't working.  Alpine continues to seek, even with .pinerc edited.  If instead we configure alpine with the in-client configuration, it asks for the SUNetID username and password, but declines the password. I recall we could once make app passwords for other clients to access email, but this seems to have been removed.

Does anyone on the list use Alpine, and is it still actually able to connect to Office 365?  Thank you!
