    man pine. Actually that does not answer your question directly, but gives
    you a URL where you can find the FAQ that answers your question:

    http://www.washington.edu/pine/faq/config.html#9.5

    You might need to "allow-changing-from" (which might be disabled by
    default) in your main pine.conf.fixed or main pine.conf.

    I more simply set my local username same as at my ISP and then just change
    my domain to match, along with quell-user-lookup-in-passwd-file (none of
    which needs any special main pine config).
