anno - annotate messages (only available within the message handling system, mh)
anno [+folder] [msgs] [-component field] [-help] [-[no]inplace] [-text body]
Specifies the name of the header field which anno adds. It should be a valid RFC 822-style message field name, which means that it should consist of alphanumeric characters or dashes only. If you do not supply this option, anno will prompt you for the field name. Prints a list of the valid options to this command. The -inplace switch causes annotation to be done in place in order to preserve links to the annotated message. Allows you to add a header field containing text to the message. The anno command will create a second header field on the message, containing the text that you specify. If the text contains a space, you must enclose the text in double quotes ("). If you do not supply this option, anno adds only one field, which contains the date of the annotation.
The default settings for this command are:
+folder defaults to the current folder msgs defaults to the current message -noinplace
The anno command annotates a message by adding one or more header fields to the message.
The anno command allows you to choose the name of the header field which you add. It records the date at which the message is annotated, and allows you to add an additional field containing text, if you wish.
You can use anno with dist, forw, and repl, to keep track of how you have distributed, forwarded, or replied to messages.
