How do I change my full name when sending messages from Pine?

By default, Athena pine will use your full name as determined from your account information. You may wish to change this to include a nickname or other version of your name. For example, if your full name is "James Q. Smith", you may want e-mail you send from pine to appear as coming from "Jim Smith" instead.

  1. Start Pine (athena% pine).
  2. At the Pine main menu, press the S key on your keyboard to enter setup.
  3. At the setup menu, press the C key to enter setup configuration.
  4. Using your keyboard's arrow keys, highlight the "personal-name" option and press <Enter>.
  5. Edit your name and press <Enter> again to save your changes.
  6. To exit setup, press the E key. Press the Y key to save your changes.
