[ubuntu-uk] Problems using Alpine on Ubuntu 10.04

Hi guys,

I was using Alpine, the text-based email client on Windows 7 for a while 
and it was working very well. I was very happy as I didn't have to use 
Outlook or Thunderbird, which really bog down my laptop.

Today, I decided to get rid of Windows for good, and installed Ubuntu 
installed and configured Alpine.

Shockingly, the experience has been nothing short of frustrating!

I keep getting a status message
'waited for x seconds for reply from server. still waiting...'
all the time, for all my mailboxes! I never had this issue on windows!

And, it asks me if I want to close the inbox (or connection), but doesn't 
accept any input, and keeps trying to open my inbox again, till it gives 
up and closes it by itself.

Has anyone else been using Alpine? Have any of you guys experienced this?
