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 MAILHEADER environment variable to change the header file that rn
passes to Rnmail.
