Alpine has extensive online help if you use its configuration editor
(rather than editing the config file directly). I'm not quite sure from
your message, but I think you want to look at "Inbox Path" and "SMTP
Server". Go to Setup->Config, then down to either of those options, then
press "?" for the help. Both of those link to even more documentation.

>From "Server Name Syntax" (linked from the help for "Inbox Path" and
"SMTP Server"), you'll find that Alpine treats a bare server name as an
IMAP server. You can append "/POP3" to the end of the hostname to
specify POP.
