You may now wish to exit
emacs entirely. Use C-x C-c
emacs. If you exited without running x in the
‘+inbox’ buffer, Emacs will offer to save it for you. Type
y or SPC to save ‘+inbox’ changes, which means to
perform any refiles and deletes that you did there.
If you don’t want to leave Emacs, you can type q to bury (hide) the MH-E folder or delete it entirely with C-x k. You can then later recall it with C-x b or M-x mh-rmail.
On the other hand, if you no longer want to use MH and MH-E, you can
take your mail with you. You can copy all of your mail into a single
file, mbox-style, by using the MH command
example, to create a file called msgbox with the messages in
your ‘+inbox’ folder, use ‘packf +inbox’. The
packf command will append the messages to the file if it
already exists, so you can use ‘folders -recurse -fast’ in a
script to copy all of your messages into a single file, or using the
‘-file’ argument, a file for each folder.
