Provided by: nmh_1.7.1-4_amd64 bug

NAME

       new - report on nmh folders with new messages
       fnext - set current nmh folder to next folder with new messages
       fprev - set current nmh folder to previous folder with new messages
       unseen - scan any new messages in all nmh folders

SYNOPSIS

       new [-help] [-version] [sequences] [-mode mode] [-folders foldersfile]

       fnext is equivalent to new -mode fnext

       fprev is equivalent to new -mode fprev

       unseen is equivalent to new -mode unseen

DESCRIPTION

       new,  in  its  default  mode,  produces a one-line-per-folder listing of all folders which
       contain messages in the specified sequences, or in the sequence(s) listed in  the  profile
       entry  “Unseen-Sequence”.   Each  line  consists  of  the folder name, the total number of
       messages in the specified sequences, and a list of messages derived from the  .mh_sequence
       file.  For example:

            foo     11.* 40-50
            bar    380.  760-772 824-828
             total    391.

       The  `*'  on  foo  indicates that it is the current folder.  The last line shows the total
       number of messages in the desired sequences.

       new crawls the folder hierarchy recursively to  find  all  folders,  and  prints  them  in
       lexicographic  order.   Override  this  behavior by providing a foldersfile containing the
       pre-sorted list of folders which new should check, one per line.

       In fnext  and  fprev  modes,  new  changes  to  the  next  or  previous  matching  folder,
       respectively.

       In unseen mode, new executes scan sequences for each matching folder.
