Commands for the mailer. Womble on!
h [range] ............ Main menu (showing subjects and stuff). If you give a
                       range the subjects in the range will be displayed.
                       Otherwise as many as fit on your screen. "h all" will
                       show all subjects, even if that means you get 6 screens
                       at once :-).
m <name> ............. Mails to the given person(s).
r [num] .............. Replies to the message number or the last read message

                       if it didn't exist yet.
s [range] <filename> . Creators only: saves given message(s) to given file.
                       If no full pathname was given it will be saved in the
                       current directory(!). The resulting file is in E-mail
                       format, so it can be read by an E-mail program.
i .................... Index of your mail folders. You always have an inbox.
c <name> ............. Change to given folder (if it exists).
l .................... List the currently available mailing lists.
l <list> ............. List the members of the mailing list <list>.
L .................... Toggles showing of full/abbreviated header for
                       messages. The default is abbreviated.
q .................... Quit, the mailer will ask if you want to delete/move
                       marked/read messages. It asks if you want to move the
                       read messages from your inbox to the received folder.
? .................... Display this help file.
<num> ................ Display given message.

Return on a blank line will display the next unread message.

A range is defined as a list of comma seperated numbers or spans. So "1-2" is defined as well as "1,2,3" and "all" is a special case that means all messages, so "d all" is a valid command.

It does intelligent matching, so if there are 4 messages and you typed "d 1-30" it will delete the 4 messages and will not complain.

You can execute all commands by just typing the letter, the mailer will then explain what you have to type.
