This book covers MH (which isn't being actively developed) as well as nmh, the new and updated MH. It also covers three interfaces to MH and nmh: mh-e, exmh and xmh. One big difference between MH and most other mail user agents is that you can use MH from a UNIX shell prompt (like % or $). Those three interfaces all hide the command line from you. Why would you want to read about plain MH if you can use an interface?
