How do I check on a Unix server what version of the Alpine mail client is installed?
I have root access in case that is needed.
That works even without
alpine installed (e.g. in Docker container):
$ cat /etc/alpine-release 3.4.6
oh, just found it:
You should be able to run the command
alpine -v or
alpine -version ... you can also start Alpine and press
? on the main menu to open the main Help page, which will also tell you the version.
If your system has a package manager that you used to install Alpine, you can also check with that. For example, on my Debian system, I'd run:
$ dpkg -l | grep alpine ii alpine 1.10+dfsg-3 Text-based email client, friendly for novices but powerful
