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.

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.
