Mutt, how to see saved mail


In the Mutt mail program, once a message is saved (to /var/spool/mail ) it is not dispayed anymore. How do I view previous saved mails in Mutt ? I can't find the command to the saved-mail-box.

Check out http://www.mutt.org I haven't tried to retreive messages I have received as I make a paper copy of those I wish to keep. There doesn't seem to be a way to save sent messages other than sending yourself a cc. Other than that, mutt is a very nice mailer.

I've found the way to save outgoing messages in Mutt:
touch ~/sent
in .muttrc where it says folders and Mailboxes;
record (path) value: "~/sent" ( and uncomment it ! )
That should work.

Cybergal,
Yes, thanks, in combination with reply 12.34 AM: "c" to change mailboxes ">" for stored inbox-mail , "<" for saved sent-mail.
