ls -l |grep <date> | grep <user>

       sortm - sort messages

       sortm [ msgs ] [ +folder ] [ options ]

       The command sorts all the messages in the current folder into chronological order according to the contents of the Date: fields of the mes-

       By default, sorts all the messages in the current folder.  You can select particular messages in the folder by giving a range of  messages.
       You can also sort messages in another folder by specifying the folder name.

       If  encounters  a  message without a Date: field, or if the message has a Date: field that cannot parse, it attempts to keep the message in
       the same relative position.  However, this does not always work; for instance, if the first message encountered lacks a date which  can	be
       parsed, then it will usually be placed at the end of the messages being sorted.

       When complains about a message which it cannot order, it complains about the message number prior to sorting.

       -datefield field
		 Specifies the name of the header field to use when making the date comparison.  If you have a special field in each message, such
		 as Delivery-Date:, then the -datefield switch can be used to tell which field to examine.  If you do not give	this  option,  the
		 default is to use the Date: header field.

       -help	 Prints a list of all the valid options to this command.

		 Displays the general actions that it is taking to place the folder in sorted order.  The -noverbose option performs these actions
		 silently.  The default is -noverbose.

       The default settings for this command are:

	      +folder defaults to the current folder
	      msgs defaults to all
	      -datefield date

Profile Components
       Path:   To determine your MH directory

       The following example sorts all the messages in the folder
       % sortm +meetings

       The next example sorts messages 10-30 in the folder called
       % sortm +test 10-30

       The user profile.
