The ":" prompt in the editor means that the editor is ready to receive text. You can simply write the text lines here (please do not write lines longer than 79 characters!).
On the ":" prompt
you can also enter certain command sequences. For example:
|%q||Cancels the message and exits the editor|
|%e||Saves the message and exits the editor|
|%h||Lists all available commands|
|%L||Lists the lines of your message with line numbers|
|%d 2||Deletes line 2 of your message|
For information about other commands, please see HELP EDITOR COMMANDS.
