Alpine must be compiled with password file support to enable this. In that
case, the option
alpine -passfile /full/path/to/foo
will allow you to define the file "foo" as the password file. To start
this process create an empty file called "foo", and Alpine will start
saving your passwords in that file.
:) Can Alpine use `.authinfo' for login?
No, alpine does not know authinfo.
