     mcom, mfwd, mbnc, mrep — compose, reply, forward, bounce, send messages


     mcom [-header values ...] [recipients ...]
     mcom -r [draft]
     mrep [-header values ... --] msg
     mfwd [-r] [-header values ... --] [msgs ...]
     mbnc [-header values ... --] msg


     mcom creates a new draft message and opens it in an editor.  After editing, a loop is
     started where the user can send, re-edit or cancel the message.  Use ‘mcom -r’ to resume the
     editing of a draft; by default, the last modified draft will be edited.

     mrep creates the draft such that the message will be a reply to msg.

     mfwd creates the draft with a subject and body appropriate for forwarding the message.  By
     default, messages are forwarded verbatim as MIME ‘message/rfc822’ attachments.  Use -r to
     forward as mshow(1) rendered plain text, using RFC 934 message encapsulation.

     mbnc creates the draft from the original msg (including headers) and adds a Resent-To
     header, to which the message will be bounced directly.  (See mmsg(7) for the message
     argument syntax.)

     All commands can take optional header flags (which consist of two or more characters) to
     prefill header fields, e.g. you can use ‘mcom -to merrilyn -cc elea becci -subject 'Party
     invite'’ to create a draft with the To, Cc and Subject fields already set.  The flag -body
     file can be used to prepopulate the draft for mcom and mrep with the contents of file.

     Note that these flags apply to all arguments after them (e.g. ‘mcom -attach *.c’ works), so
     you need to use ‘--’ when you want to use this feature together with mrep, mfwd, or mbnc.


     s   Send the message.  The MIME version will be used when one has been created.

     c   Cancel sending and quit, after displaying the filename of the saved draft.

     m   Run mmime(1) on the draft, and print the result of mshow -t.

     e   Re-edit the draft.

     d   Delete the draft and quit.


     EDITOR  Editor used to compose messages.

     MBLAZE  Directory containing mblaze configuration files.  (Default: $HOME/.mblaze)


     snd.*   Draft messages, kept in current directory.  This can be configured in

             Default headers for each message.

     ${MBLAZE:-$HOME/.mblaze}/signature or ~/.signature
             Default signature.


     The mcom utility exits 0 on success, and >0 if an error occurs.
