Deleting Moving Mail Printing
mh-e has analogies for each of the MH
commands. To refile a message in another folder, use the o
mh-refile-msg) (mnemonic: ``output'') command. You are prompted
for the folder name.
If you are refiling several messages into the same folder, you can use
the ! (
mh-refile-or-write-again) command to repeat the last
refile or write (see the description of C-o in Files and Pipes). Or, place the messages into a sequence (Sequences) and
specify a prefix argument to o, in which case you'll be prompted
for the name of the sequence (for example, C-u o search RET).
If you wish to copy a message to another folder, you can use the c
mh-copy-msg) command (see the
-link argument to
refile(1)). You are prompted for a folder, and you can specify a
prefix argument if you want to copy a sequence into another folder. In
this case, you are then prompted for the sequence. Note that unlike the
o command, the copy takes place immediately. The original copy
remains in the current folder.
When you want to read the messages that you have refiled into folders,
use the M-f (
mh-visit-folder) command to visit the folder.
You are prompted for the folder name.
Other commands you can perform on folders include: M-l
mh-list-folders), to list all the folders in your mail
directory; M-k (
mh-kill-folder), to remove a folder;
M-x mh-sort-folder, to sort the messages by date (see
sortm(1) to see how to sort by other criteria); M-p
mh-pack-folder), to pack a folder, removing gaps from the
numbering sequence; and M-r (
mh-rescan-folder), to rescan
the folder, which is useful to grab all messages in your `
after processing your new mail for the first time. If you don't want to
rescan the entire folder, give M-r or M-p a prefix argument
and you'll be prompted for a range of messages to display (for instance,
C-u M-r last:50 RET).
