NAME
Rnmail - a program for replying via mail
SYNOPSIS
Rnmail destination_list or Rnmail -h headerfile [oldarticle] or Rnmail
DESCRIPTION
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.
