       mh-draft - draft folder facility for mmh


       There  are  a  number  of  interesting advanced facilities for the composition of outgoing

   The Draft Folder
       The comp, dist, forw, and repl commands allow you to  manipulate  various  draft  messages

       Draft  messages are created in the draft folder.  (The `Draft-Folder' profile entry may be
       used to change the default draft folder.

       New drafts are created unless the user invokes comp with -use, in which case  the  current
       draft is used.

       The last draft message the user was composing is the current message in the draft folder.

       The user can send off whatever drafts desired from the shell using the standard mmh `msgs'
       convention to the send command:

              send f

       If no `msgs' are given, the current message is used.

       To make all this a bit more clear, here are some examples:

       Any of the commands


       constructs  the  message  draft  in  the  draft  folder  using  the  `b'  message  number.
       Furthermore,  they  each  define `c' in this folder to be that message draft.  If the user
       were to use the quit option at `What now?'  level,  then  later  on,  if  no  other  draft
       composition was done, the draft could be sent with simply


       Or, if more editing was required, the draft could be edited with

            comp -use

       Instead, if other drafts had been composed in the meantime, so that this message draft was
       no longer known as `c' in the `draft' folder, then the user could scan the folder  to  see
       which  message  draft  in  the folder should be used for editing or sending.  Clever users
       could even employ a back-quoted pick to do the work:

            comp -use `pick +drafts -to nmh-workers`


            send `pick +drafts -to nmh-workers`

       Note that in the comp example, the output from pick must resolve to a single message draft
       (it  makes  no  sense  to  talk  about composing two or more drafts with one invocation of
       comp).  In contrast, in the send example, as many message drafts as  desired  can  appear,
       since send doesn't mind sending more than one draft at a time.

       It is important to realize that mmh treats the draft folder like a standard MH folder.
