Slackware Mail
 
When you start up Slackware, and you log into your account, there is a few things that it says and one of them is whether you have mail or not. I looked at my root mail for the first time and I read all of it. Now that I'm in it, how the heck do I get out of it? =\
I looked for the answer on google.com/linux and I looked in the Linux Essentials online book, but to no avail. So my first question is, how do I exit it? My second question is, does anybody actually use it?

well it depends on what 'it' is. 'it' would be a console mail reader, correct?
it depends on what one you used. at school we have 'pine' and i too think its confusing to do a simple thing, like quit. i think its SHIFT + Q then it will prompt to exit.

"It," is the console, I guess you can say, when you start up Slackware in Lilo. Never mind, I figured it out. I feel stupid. Next time I will try ALL of the obvious things, like typing "exit." :x

the 'console' doesnt read mail, commands (programs) do. what command did you run to 'read' your mail? pine? cat? less? etc.

I just typed that into the console.
I got it all set.

To exit type 'quit' or 'xit' (yes spelling is correct). quit applies changes to folder whereas xit does not.

'help' or '?' for full command list.
