anno(1)								       anno(1)

       anno  -	annotate  messages (only available within the message handling
       system, mh)

       anno [+folder] [msgs] [-component field] [-help] [-[no]inplace]	[-text

       Specifies  the name of the header field which anno adds. It should be a
       valid RFC 822-style message field name, which means that it should con‐
       sist  of	 alphanumeric  characters or dashes only. If you do not supply
       this option, anno will prompt you for the field name.  Prints a list of
       the  valid options to this command.  The -inplace switch causes annota‐
       tion to be done in place in order to preserve links  to	the  annotated
       message.	  Allows you to add a header field containing text to the mes‐
       sage.  The anno command will create a second header field on  the  mes‐
       sage,  containing  the  text  that  you specify. If the text contains a
       space, you must enclose the text in double quotes ("). If  you  do  not
       supply  this  option, anno adds only one field, which contains the date
       of the annotation.

       The default settings for this command are:

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

       The anno command annotates a message  by	 adding	 one  or  more	header
       fields to the message.

       The  anno  command  allows  you	to choose the name of the header field
       which you add. It records the date at which the message	is  annotated,
       and allows you to add an additional field containing text, if you wish.

       You  can	 use  anno with dist, forw, and repl, to keep track of how you
       have distributed, forwarded, or replied to messages.

       By default, anno annotates the current message in the  current  folder.
       You  can select another message by using the msg and +folder arguments.
       You can also annotate more than one message, or a range of messages.

       Path: To determine your Mail directory

       This example annotates message number 1 in the folder +test.  The -com‐
       ponent  option  specifies  the name of the header field: % anno 1 +test
       -component Forwarded

	      The following field is added to the message  header:  Forwarded:
	      Tue,  08	Jan  1991 16:10:06 +0000 The next example shows how to
	      use the -text option to add an additional field: % anno  -compo‐
	      nent Forwarded -text "to David - as requested"

	      The  following lines are added to the message header: Forwarded:
	      Tue, 08 Jan  1991	 16:13:27  +0000  Forwarded:  to  David	 -  as
	      requested	 The final example shows how anno prompts for the name
	      of the header field, if the -component option is not supplied: %
	      annoEnter component name: forwarded

	      The  following  line is added to the message: forwarded: Tue, 08
	      Jan 1991 16:21:58 +0000
