       Rnmail -h headerfile [oldarticle]

       Rnmail  is a friendly interface for mailing replies to news articles.  It will ask several
       questions, then allow you to enter your letter, and then mail it off.  If you type h and a
       carriage return at any point, Rnmail will tell you what it wants to know.

       The -h form is used when invoked from rn.  If your editor can edit multiple files, and you
       want the article to which you are replying to show up as an  alternate  file,  define  the
       environment  variable  MAILPOSTER as "Rnmail -h %h %A".	You can also modify the the MAIL-
       HEADER environment variable to change the header file that rn passes to Rnmail.
