OMAIL(1) OMAIL(1) NAME omail - Old omero mail reader and sender SYNOPSIS omail [ -dsS ] [ -m maildir ] [ mbox ] omail -n [ -m maildir ] [ -o outgoing ] [ addr [ subject ] ] DESCRIPTION Omail is a omero mail reader. Its user interface can be han- dled as said in omero(1). Its primary use is for composing and sending mail. Mail reading is best done with Mails(1), which would start omail when necessary to compose new mails and replies. Beware that this program will soon be replaced by a Plan B mail delivery volume, which would render it obsolete. When used with option -n, it starts a composition panel and does nothing else. An optional address may be supplied and, in this case, an optional subject string may be given. Option -o sets outgoing as the Plan 9 folder where to keep a copy of sent mail. By default it is /mail/box/$user/outgoing unless maildir specifies an alternate path to the user's mail directory. In the composition panel, headers are single lines before the first empty one. The rest is considered as the body of the message. Any Attach: header attaches the named file. The Include: header includes inline attachments. Other headers are as in other mail programs. The marshal(1) program is used to deliver the mail. See its manual page for details and for available user configuration files. When used to read mail, the program uses netplumber(4), in particular seemail, showmail, and sendmail ports. See mail(1). The mailbox is shown as kept on disk. As a safeguard, deleted mail is a saved to a monthly folder at /mail/box/$user. Options -s and -S make omail more conser- vative (and even more so) with regard to the available line width.
