RMM(1)                                                     RMM(1)

NAME
       rmm - remove messages

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

DESCRIPTION
       By  default,  Rmm  will  remove  the specified messages by
       renaming the message files with  preceding  commas.   Such
       file  will  then  need to be remove in some manner after a
       certain amount of time.  Many sites arrange  for  cron (8)
       to remove such files once a day, so check with your system
       administrator.

       If you prefer a different method of  `removing'  messages,
       you  can  define the rmmproc profile component.  For exam-
       ple, you can add a profile component such as

            rmmproc:  /bin/rm

       then instead of simply renaming the message file, rmm will
       call the named program to delete the file.

       Some users of csh prefer the following:

            alias rmm 'refile +d'

       where folder +d is a folder for deleted messages, and

            alias mexp 'rm `mhpath +d all`'

       is used to "expunge" deleted messages.

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

       `msgs'  defaults  to  cur  If  a  folder is given, it will
       become the current folder.  Since refile uses your rmmproc
       to  delete  the  message, the rmmproc must NOT call refile
       without specifying `-normmproc', or  you  will  create  an
       infinte loop.
