       mhmail  - send or read mail (only available within the message handling
       system, mh)

       mhmail [addrs...] [options]

       Specifies the text of the message. If it is specified, then  the	 stan‐
       dard  input  is	not read.  Specifies addresses to be placed in the cc:
       field of the message.  Specifies the content of the From: header of the
       draft.  The  address given is placed in the From: field of the message.
       The Sender: field is filled in correctly by post.  Prints a list of the
       valid  options  for this command.  Specifies the mail system over which
       mail is sent. The only value allowed is smtp,  which  is	 the  standard
       mail  system.   Additional values are supported only for use with other
       mail systems.  Provides the text of the Subject: field of the message.

       The mhmail program is intended as a replacement for the	standard  mail
       programs,  bellmail  and	 ucbmail.  See binmail(1) and mail(1) for more
       details of these mail programs. When invoked without arguments, it sim‐
       ply  invokes  inc to incorporate new messages from the user's maildrop.
       When one or more users is specified, a message is read from  the	 stan‐
       dard  input  and	 spooled  to a temporary file. The mhmail program then
       invokes post with the name of the temporary file	 as  its  argument  to
       deliver the message to the specified user.

       Normally, people will use comp and send to send messages.

       Messages	 with  a  null body part will not be sent by mhmail.  You must
       include some body text in all messages to be sent by mhmail.

       For this version, the -mts option only supports the value  smtp.	 Addi‐
       tional values are supported for use only with other mail systems.

       Program	to incorporate a maildrop into a folder.  Program to deliver a
       message.	 Temporary copy of message.
