In reply to: There is a nmh replacement by jordi
Parent article: The Grumpy Editor's guide to mail clients: introduction

I had actually seen references to MH support in mailutils. If you go to the mailutils page, however, it says absolutely nothing about MH support. The online manual is equally silent on the topic. So I gathered that any such support, if it exists, must not yet be ready for prime time.

Maybe I'll take another look after the promised 0.5 release. Perhaps some documentation will be included? :)

Right, I noticed the webpage doesn't mention MH at all just after posting.

This is probably because the texinfo manual has a nice "FIXME" note in the mh section. :)

0.5 will still lack the info docs for mh, but all the utilities seem to have a useful --help switch. I'll see if this lack of documentation can be fixed for 0.6. In the meanwhile, I'll provide some help2man manpages in the Debian package, if I see there's demand.

GNU mailutils 0.5

Just for your info, it's released. :)
