6     Alpine's basic feature set includes:
7     * View, Save, Export, Delete, Print, Reply and Forward messages.
8     Compose messages in a simple editor with word-wrap and a
9     spelling checker. Messages may be postponed for later completion.
10     * Selection and management of message folders.
11     * Address book to keep a list of long or frequently-used
12     addresses. Personal distribution lists may be defined.
13     Addresses may be taken into the address book from incoming mail
14     without retyping them.
15     * New mail checking/notification occurs automatically (configurable).
16     * On-line, context-sensitive help screens.
