  1. mailx - bug or feature


    Stumbled onto a situation I dont understand
    and hoping some one can clarify it.
    When envoking mailx for composing a new message with the -r flag (-r abc@def)
    it turns off the ~ commands.
    eg ~? is ignored along with all other ~ commands
    Anyone know why that might be?

    That would not be a bug as it's documented, but I don't know
    what the reason is.
