I downloaded pine, so i can use text email (or so i thought)

i tried sending out a test email, but it came back bad because my sender email did not exist... anyone know how i can correct this:

I am just curious. Are you able to ping any outside servers like Yahoo or Google? Type in

ping http://www.yahoo.com
ping http://www.google.com

and see if that works.
