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.

FILES

       $HOME/.mh_profile          The user profile

PROFILE COMPONENTS

       Path:                To determine the user's nmh directory
       Current-Folder:      To find the default current folder
       rmmproc:             Program to delete the message

SEE ALSO

       refile(1), rmf(1)

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.
