20 Miscellaneous Commands, Variables, and Buffers

This chapter covers the following command and the various MH-E buffers,


Display version information about MH-E and the MH mail handling system.

One command worth noting is M-x mh-version. You can compare the version this command prints to the latest release (see Getting MH-E). The output of M-x mh-version, found in a buffer named *MH-E Info*, should usually be included with any bug report you submit (see Bug Reports).

MH-E Buffers

Besides the MH-Folder, MH-Show, and MH-Letter buffers, MH-E creates several other buffers. They are:

*MH-E Folders*

This buffer contains the output of F l (mh-list-folders). See Organizing Your Mail with Folders.

*MH-E Help*

This buffer contains the output of ? (mh-help) and C-c ? in MH-Letter mode. See Using This Manual.

*MH-E Info*

This buffer contains the output of M-x mh-version RET.

*MH-E Log*

This buffer contains the last 100 lines of the output of the various MH commands.

*MH-E Mail Delivery*

This buffer contains the transcript of a mail delivery. See Sending a Message.

*MH-E Recipients*

This buffer contains the output of C-c C-w (mh-check-whom) and is killed when draft is sent. See Checking Recipients.

*MH-E Sequences*

This buffer contains the output of S l (mh-list-sequences). See Using Sequences.


This is a scratch, ephemeral, buffer used by MH-E functions. Note that it is hidden because the first character in the name is a space. You’ll generally not have any need for this buffer.
