Every character-object has the ability to send and receive @mail messages. Commands to write and read the messages in your @mailbox can be found below.

Reading @mail

@mail <msg #> or @mail/read <msg-list> This displays messages which match the msg# or msg-list from your current folder.
+mail or @mail
or @mail <msg-list, but not a single msg #>
This gives a brief list of all mail in the current folder, with sender name, a list of receiving players, subject, and message status.
@mail/list [<msg-list>] This gives the same list, but with time sent instead of subject. The status field is a set of characters (ex: NC-UF+) which mean: N = New (unread) message, C = Cleared message, U = Urgent message, F = Forwarded message, + = Tagged message, The opposites of these (read messages, etc.) are indicated with a '-' in the status field in that position.

Sending @mail

@mail[/switch] <player-list> = <subject> This begins a message to all players in <player-list>.
-<text> adds text to the message in progress, for example; '-This is a test' would add the text 'This is a test' to the end of your @mail message, likewise, ~<text> prepends the text.
or @mail/send
This sends the message that is currently in progress. It is the equivalent of @mail/send.
@mail/urgent sends the message as urgent, and should not be used often.
+cc <player-list>
or @mail/cc <player-list>
This replaces the current player list with a new one for carbon copying. It does _not_ add onto the existing list.
or @mail/proof
This shows you the message that is currently in progress, as it would be read by whomever received it.
@mail/edit <old text> = <new text> Like @edit, but edits the message in process.
or @mail/abort
This aborts the message currently in progress, allowing you to start a new one.
@mail/fwd <msg> = <player-list> This sends a copy of <msg> to all the players in <player-list>. The copy will appear to have been sent by you (not the original sender), and its status will be "Forwarded". Note that this places the message to be forwarded into your mail buffer, where you can edit it with @mail/edit, add text with '-', or prepend text with '~'. You have to use '—' or @mail/send to send the message.
@mail/quick <player-list>/<subject> = <message> Sends <message> to the list of players.
@mail/reply[/quote] <message> This starts a working message to the person who sent you <msg>. Because this is a reply, the subject line will be: 'Re: <subject line from original message>'. Also, if /quote is specified, the original message will be quoted into the working message with a header and footer much like the following: On Thu Apr 27 21:33:04 2000, Gordon wrote:", followed by the quoted message from original message, and ended by; "** End of included message from Gordon". You can add additional text above or below the quoted material with the postpend ('-') and prepend ('~') @mail commands. Like, normal outgoing @mail, the reply is finished and sent with '--' on a line by itself.
@mail/replyall[/quote] This starts a working message to the person who sent you <msg> and to every other recipient of <message>. The reply works the same as above.

@mail Reviewing

@mail/review <player> Reviews the messages you have sent to <player>.
@mail/review <player>=<msglist> Reads the messages you have sent to <player>.
@mail/retract <player>=<msglist> Retracts (deletes) unread messages you have sent to <player>.
