"Now from the main menu type "L" to open "Folder List", then select "Incoming Folders". Now you'll probably see your default inbox, which I'm assuming you'll want to leave alone in case you receive local mail. To add another folder to receive mail from a remote server type "A" to add a folder."
This didn't work for me. There was no "Incoming Folders" entry.
"Alpine prompts you for "name of server to contain folder""
Again, this wasn't what happened...
