To send or read mail you
have to go to a mail box. This is a special board where messages are addressed
to one or many recipients.
To send mail, use write
<title> @<recipient> @<recipient> ...
The title is optional, but at least one recipient is needed.
write Happy birthday @bilbo @frodo
How it goes on depends on your editor.
If you use the lineeditor, please read
look mail - lists mail addressed to you
tail - lists the 20 last mails to you
tail <number> - lists the <number> last mails to you
read <number> - reads a specific mail
look sent mail - lists mail you have sent
read sent <number> - reads a mail you have sent
reply <number> - reply to a mail
forward <number> @dain - forward a mail to Dáin
forward sent <number> @dain - forward a previously sent mail to Dáin
forward sent <number> --retroactive-cc @dain - cc Dain on an existing mail
Messages you have already read are marked with a "+." A "+" next to a sent mail indicates it has been read by at least one person on the recipient list.
To see exactly who has read a mail, use "look seen mail" or "look sent seen mail".
You can remove messages
with "remove <number>",
or "remove sent <number>",
and reply to a message with
Note that the mail you create will become a single message which is accessible to the people you provide. As it only exists as one message, should any of the recipients delete it from their mail box, it will be deleted from all of the other, too -- unless you use a selective remove.
To selectively remove mails: "remove --from-my-inbox-only <number>". You can also disavow a mail by "remove sent --from-my-outbox <number>"; however, removing a mail from your outbox causes the mail to appear as though the sender was deleted: (*Lost*).
For Ainur, special recipients are @valar or @aratar, which sends your mail to all V+ or all A+. Mortals should usually 'report' instead.
