Basic MUX, Part 3

Online mail, known as @mail or +mail is a way to send messages to other players on the game, especially if you want to tell them something and they aren't connected. To see the online help for @mail, type help @mail. Here are the basic commands:

@mail "<player name>"=<subject of message>

You type the message by typing a - and following it with the text. Then you type -- to send the message.

Say I want to have Tony help me with something tommorrow. I will send him a message by typing these commands:

@mail Tony=Hey, I need some help

-Hi Tony, I need you to help me learn how to make my commanding officer mad. Can you meet me at the spaceport tommorrow at 5? Thanks.


And the message is sent to Tony, who will (hopefully) reply.

To read his reply, I would first type: @mail. This will bring a list of messages in my mailbox up. It will look something like this:

---------------------------   MAIL: Folder 0   ----------------------------
[N------] 1   (   6) From: Tony             Sub: Re: Hey, I need some help

Here, the reply from Tony is message #1. To read it, all I have to do is type @mail 1.

Now that you know how to communicate with people, we should learn about how to enter and leave units. Go to the next section to see how.
