As mentioned by other people, you may wish to not use IMAP at all.  If you
do, though, you might try "{mail.cardina.net}inbox".  If this doesn't
work, then I don't know.

This is probably a result of configuring your smail using the "satellite" 
option.  Re-run smailconfig and configure your site with the "internet
host" option or with whatever option allows only the local delivery of
mail to avoid this. You could then create a ~jeremy/.forward file to
forward mail to your ISP, so that you'd read it along with all your other
mail. (though the .forward wouldn't work if you only allow local delivery
of mail)

Alternatively, you could have pine use the default inbox, and then add
your ISP's imap stuff as another "collection" - in the config.  menus
there's some option that talks about mail collections - add one called
"{mail.cardina.net}[]".  However, the .forward option mentioned above is
probably a better idea, unless you have some reason to want to disable
outgoing mail by other users on your machine.

As mentioned by others though, why do this to yourself?  Use fetchmail
combined with pine looking only locally unless you have a real reason to
store mail on your ISP's machine.
