For the record here is what I use in Pine for my .pinerc file.  Located
in /home/user_name/.pinerc...
smtp-server=smtp.gmail.com:587/tls/user=your_address at gmail.com

So how is there a problem with Pine? 

I see you got Evolution figured out.  I would rather have a plain old
email client like pine or evolution instead of a VPN.
