Subject: Re: [9front] [PATCH] nedmail(1): add plenty of missing commands + (theoretical) flag descriptions
Date: Mon, 19 Sep 2022 08:37:49 +0200	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <2A123F229D62897E5BBDB4510C4DD956@chrisfroeschl.de> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <7D6527F6F894CB5FDBFE56D8256CDA77@chrisfroeschl.de>

I adjusted the descriptions to point to upasfs(4) if appropiate.
Flags from upasfs are already described there.

The new flag section is specific to nedmail and should cover
everything that works atm. If you know more, feel free to append.
