View/Edit #87!@mail

File name: @mail
Syntax:  @mail
         @mail new            (to see recent messages)
         @mail 1-$            (to see *all* messages)

Shows a table of contents for your MOO email message collection.  You are notified when you connect to the MOO if there are any such messages.  A little arrow indicates the mail system's notion of your 'current message'.  
The first form lists all of your messages or the last 15 if you have more than that many; the second form lists only those messages after your `current message'.  The third form shows your entire collection.

If you have a large number of mail messages, you can give arguments so that @mail only lists the messages you're interested in.  You can also list messages residing on mail recipients which are public or for which you have read access.
The general format is

         @mail <message-sequence> [on *<recipient>]

<recipient> must name some child of $mail_recipient (e.g., a mailing list);
<message-sequence> can be a sequence of message numbers; you can also scan the recipient for articles that fit a given description, as specified in `help message-sequences'.

Note that if you view mail on some other recipient and have "sticky" in your .mail_options (see `help mail-options'), all further mail commands (e.g., @read, @next, @rmm,...) will apply to that recipient.  In this case use `@mail on me' to go back to looking at your own mail.
