Date: 2009mar20 OS: Linux Q. How get I get a better indication that I am in the Linux mail program? A. The very basic command line mail program (Mailx) is useful because its always there. But it has no prompt by default. Adding:set prompt='mail> 'to the config file /etc/mail.rc or your personal config file ~/.mailrc Makes it a bit more user friendly. By the way here's a crash course on how to use it:. <enter> will display the current message h <enter> will display a page of headers <number> <enter> will display message <number> q <enter> will get you out
