Note: This file contains information on the mail client 'mail'. For
general mail information, see 'help mail-clients'.
Mail is a basic mail client. It supports the functions listed below. To
use the client, simply type 'mail <command>' or 'mail <name>'.
mail: List the messages in your inbox.
mail <player | alias>:
Mail a new message to <player> or <alias>. Multiples addresses can
be given here, and the aliases are the ones created in mailx.
While you cannot modify them from this client, they will be
expanded by it.
mail read <num>:
Displays message number <num>
mail delete <num>:
mail d <num>:
Deletes message number <num>
mail reply <num>:
mail r <num>:
Starts a reply message to message number <num>. This client does
not quote the original message.
mail group <num>:
mail g <num>:
Mail a reply to all the recipients of message <num>.
mail forward <num>:
mail f <num>:
Forwards message number <num>. The forwarded message cannot be
edited, it is simply forwarded in its entirety.
If for some reason you should get disconnected or
some other disaster short of quitting or a game crash, this
command may be able to recover your editing session.
mail save <num>:
mail s <num>:
Saves that message to a filename. You will be prompted for the
path/filename. (wizards only)
Note: While you can't change your settings from this client, it does honor
the copy-to-self and ask-for-cc options from the mailx client.
