MH and nmh Section Home Page

This is the home page for the MH and nmh section of the online book MH & nmh: Email for Users & Programmers.

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?

Okay, enough hype. To start reading about MH and nmh, just click on the section table of contents.
