SecureCRT is available at www.vandyke.com.  I really like it when I have
to connect somewhere from Windows.

Anyway, the only shell account I log into that don't already have the
terminal set to vt100, happen to run the Bourne shell -- I'm saying this
because I don't know if other shells demand different syntax for this.
When I get that 'ansi' message, I type:

TERM=vt100;export TERM

This will change your term type to vt100 for the duration of your session,
and allow you to use pine.  (At least it has always worked for me :-).
