       folders - list folders and contents

       folders [ +folder ] [ msg ] [ options ]

       The  command  displays the names of your folders and the number of mes‐
       sages that they each contain.

       The command displays a list of all the folders in your Mail  directory.
       The  folders  are sorted alphabetically, each on its own line.  This is
       illustrated in the following example:
	 Folder	     # of messages (  range  ); cur  msg  (other files)
	   V2.3	 has	3 messages (   1-   3).
	 adrian	 has   20 messages (   1-  20); cur=   2.
	  brian	 has   16 messages (   1-  16).
	  chris	 has   12 messages (   1-  12).
	copylog	 has  242 messages (   1- 242); cur= 225.
	  inbox+ has   73 messages (   1- 127); cur= 127.
	    int	 has	4 messages (   1-   4); cur=   2  (others).
	   jack	 has   17 messages (   1-  17); cur=  17.

		 TOTAL= 387 messages in 8 folders.
       The plus sign (+) after inbox indicates that it is the current  folder.
       The  information	 about	the  folder  includes the term (others).  This
       indicates that the folder contains files which are not messages.	 These
       files  may be either sub-folders, or files that do not belong under the
       MH file naming scheme.

       The command is identical to the effect of using the -all option to  the

       If  you use with the +folder argument, it will display all the subfold‐
       ers within the named folder.  as shown in the following example:
       % folders +test
       Folder		# of messages (	 range	); cur	msg  (other files)
       test+ has	  18 messages (	  1-  18);	     (others).
       test/testone has	   1 message  (	  1-   1).
       test/testtwo has	  no messages.

	      TOTAL=   19 messages in 3 folders.
       See for more details of sub-folders.

       -nofast	 Lists only the name of folders, with no  additional  informa‐
		 tion.	This is faster because the folders need not be read.

       -help	 Prints a list of the valid options to this command.

       -nolist	 Lists	the contents of the folder-stack.  No +folder argument
		 is allowed with this option.

       -nopack	 Re-numbers messages in the folders.  Messages are re-numbered
		 sequentially, and any gaps in the numbering are removed.  The
		 default operation is -nopack, which does not change the  num‐
		 bering in the folder.

       -pop	 Discards  the top of the folder-stack, after setting the cur‐
		 rent folder to that value.  No +folder	 argument  is  allowed
		 with  this  option.  This corresponds to the operation in the
		 C-shell; see The -push and -pop options are  mutually	exclu‐
		 sive:	the last occurrence of either one overrides any previ‐
		 ous occurrence of the other.

       -push	 Pushes the current folder onto the  folder-stack,  and	 makes
		 the  +folder argument into the current folder.	 If +folder is
		 not given, the current folder and the top of the folder-stack
		 are  exchanged.   This corresponds to the operation in the C-
		 shell; see The -push switch and the -pop switch are  mutually
		 exclusive:  the  last	occurrence of either one overrides any
		 previous occurrence of the other.

		 Lists folders recursively.  Information  on  each  folder  is
		 displayed,  followed  by information on any sub-folders which
		 it contains.

       -nototal	 Displays only the total number of  messages  and  folders  in
		 your Mail directory.  This option does not print any informa‐
		 tion about individual folders.	 It can	 be  suppressed	 using
		 the -nototal option.

       The defaults for are:

	      +folder defaults to all
	      msg defaults to none

       MH  does	 not  allow  you to have more than 100 folders at any level in
       your Mail directory.
