s (#) [filename] or S (#) [filename]
Saves the text of a letter to the filename given in the immortal's home directory. No extensions or paths, only alphabetic filenames. The S command marks the letter for deletion as well as saving it.

(Immortal) Environment variables:

The message you will receive when you receive new mail while online. Use $S in place of the subject and $N in place of the name of whom it comes from.

Set to 1 if you do not want to be prompted for cc, 0 otherwise.

Set to 1 if you do not want to see all your mail headers when you first open your post box.

Set to 1 if you want to be prompted before the deletion of letters when you exit the mailer.

The mailer looks for a file called ".sig" in your home directory when you send mail. If it finds such a file, it appends it to your mail automatically.
