# Setting my 'From:' identity in pine?
From Pine's [M]AIN MENU, choose [S]etup, then
[C]onfig. Move down to the customized-hdrs
option. Press "Add Value". Use the format:
From: "My Real Name" <firstname.lastname@example.org>
Note: You may wish to configure default-composer-hdrs
so you can easily change the From: line when
composing new messages. The process is the
