Then hit enter, enter to choose your INBOX. Alpine is completely keyboard driven, you cannot use your mouse. Commands are listed on the bottom of the window. Note that the ^ character refers to the control (Ctrl) key. For example, ^X means to hold the control key and press x. Documentation for alpine may be found here.
Second is using a program called Thunderbird which is installed on the lab machines. Instructions for setting Thunderbird to read your CS email can be found here.

How do I read my CS email?

Email with attachments with executable extensions are also discarded. For example, you will not be able to mail or receive any .exe files.
