Description of my issue

Hi.

When I’m connected to Yunohost server via ssh, I’d like to be able to read (and send?) my emails via Alpine.

When I launch Apline there are no mails in the Inbox even though if I install a webmail client like Snappymail emails are present.

What do I need to configure to use emails from Alpine like in normal Debian?
Thanks.

You need to point the email client to the correct path where email is stored: for example for mutt

mutt -f /var/mail/user/

Ah thanks yes, that works.

…and I got it working with Alpine (my preferred option) by setting
inbox-path={localhost/novalidate-cert}inbox
in ~/.pinerc
