FORWARD, MAIL, MAILBOX
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 line
editor, please read
||lists mail addressed to you|
||lists the 20 last mails to you|
||lists the <number> last mails to you|
||reads a specific mail|
||lists mail you have sent|
||reads a mail you have sent|
||reply to a mail|
||forward a mail to Gandalf|
||forward a previously sent mail to Gandalf|
||search for <some text> in your mailbox|
||search in sent mails|
Messages you have already read are marked with

read by at least one person on the recipient list.
To see exactly who has read a mail, use
look sent seen mail.
You can remove messages with
remove <number>, or
remove sent <number>, and
reply to a message with
<number> <optional title>.
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.
You can add someone to CC of an existing mail:
<number> --retroactive-cc @gandalf.
To selectively remove mails:
<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

all A+. Mortals should usually
