-rmm msgnum ...
-rmm msg-id ...
The RMM resource is activated by the -rmm command-line option. When active, all non-option related arguments are treated as messages to delete from the archive. Messages can be specified by message numbers, message number ranges, or message-ids. Either methods can be used together. See Examples below.
The following example specifies the messages to be deleted by individual message numbers.
% mhonarc -rmm 24 28 39 48 Removing messages from ./maillist.html ... Writing mail ... Writing tmp/maillist.html ... Writing tmp/threads.html ... 45 messages
If we want to delete message 15 and message 20 through 35, the following can be used:
% mhonarc -rmm 15 20-35
In some cases, you may know the message-id of the message to delete and not the message number:
% mhonarc -rmm 199802171800.KAA27647@medusa.acs.uci.edu
You can surround message-ids with <>'s, but you then may need to quote the arguments to prevent the shell interpreting them as I/O redirection.
The following example shows how you can intermingle the various ways of specifying messages:
% mhonarc -rmm 23-34 199802171800.KAA27647@medusa.acs.uci.edu 52
