NAME

       rmm - remove messages

SYNOPSIS

       rmm [+folder] [msgs] [-link | -nolink] [-version] [-help]

DESCRIPTION

       By  default,  rmm  will  remove  the specified messages by renaming the
       message files with preceding commas.  Such files will then need  to  be
       removed  in  some  manner  after  a certain amount of time.  Many sites
       arrange for cron to remove these files once a day, so check  with  your
       system administrator.

       Alternately,   if   you  wish  for  rmm  to  really  remove  the  files
       representing these messages, you  can  use  the  -unlink  switch.   But
       messages removed by this method cannot be later recovered.

       If  you  prefer a more sophisticated method of ‘removing’ messages, you
       can define the rmmproc profile component.  For example, you can  add  a
       profile component such as

            rmmproc:  /home/foouser/bin/rmm_msgs

       then  instead  of  simply  renaming the message file, rmm will call the
       named program or script to handle the files that represent the messages
       to be deleted.

       Some users of csh prefer the following:

            alias rmm ’refile +d’

       where folder ‘+d’ is a folder for deleted messages, and

            alias mexp ’rm ‘mhpath +d all‘’

       is used to “expunge” deleted messages.

       The current message is not changed by rmm, so a next
        will advance to the next message in the folder as expected.

DEFAULTS

+folder’ defaults to the current folder
       ‘msgs’ defaults to cur
       ‘-nounlink

CONTEXT

       If a folder is given, it will become the current folder.

BUGS

       Since  refile uses your rmmproc to delete the message, the rmmproc must
       NOT call refile without specifying -normmproc, or you  will  create  an
       infinte loop.
