NAME

  rmm -	remove messages	(only available	within the message handling system,
  mh)

SYNOPSIS

  rmm [+folder]	[msgs] [-help]

OPTIONS

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

  The default settings for this	command	are:

       +folder defaults	to the current folder
       msgs defaults to	the current message

DESCRIPTION

  The rmm command deletes the current message from the current folder.

  You can specify messages and folders other than the current ones by using
  the +folder and msgs arguments.

  The current message is not changed by	rmm, so	a next will advance to the
  next message in the folder as	expected.

  If you have defined a	component rmmproc: in your .mh_profile file, then
  instead of simply renaming the message file, rmm will	call the named pro-
  gram to delete the file.

  The rmm command removes messages by renaming the message files with a
  preceding comma. Many	sites consider files that start	with a comma to	be a
  temporary backup, and	arrange	for cron(8) to remove such files once a	day.

PROFILE	COMPONENTS

  Path:	To determine your Mail directory

  rmmproc: Program to delete the message
