`*mail*'バッファで使用される主モードはMailモードです．これは， C-c接頭辞のついたいろいろな特別コマンドが用意されているという点を 除けば，Textモードとよく似ています．これらのコマンドはすべて，メッセージ の編集や送信用です．

There are two ways to send the message. C-c C-s (
sends the message and marks the `*mail*' buffer unmodified, but leaves
that buffer selected so that you can modify the message (perhaps with new
recipients) and send it again. C-c C-c (
sends and then deletes the window (if there is another window) or switches
to another buffer. It puts the `*mail*' buffer at the lowest priority
for automatic reselection, since you are finished with using it. This is
the usual way to send the message.
Mail mode provides some other special commands that are useful for
editing the headers and text of the message before you send it. There are
three commands defined to move point to particular header fields, all based
on the prefix C-c C-f (`C-f' is for "field"). They are
C-c C-f C-t (
mail-to) to move to the `To' field, C-c
C-f C-s (
mail-subject) for the `Subject' field, and C-c
C-f C-c (
mail-cc) for the `CC' field. These fields have
special motion commands because they are the most common fields for the
user to want to edit.
C-c C-w (
mail-signature) adds a standard piece text at the end of the
message to say more about who you are. The text comes from the file
`.signature' in your home directory.
When mail sending is invoked from the Rmail mail reader using an Rmail command, C-c C-y can be used inside the `*mail*' buffer to insert the text of the message you are replying to. Normally it indents each line of that message four spaces and eliminates most header fields. A numeric argument specifies the number of spaces to indent. An argument of just C-u says not to indent at all and not to eliminate anything. C-c C-y always uses the current message from the `RMAIL' buffer, so you can insert several old messages by selecting one in `RMAIL', switching to `*mail*' and yanking it, then switching back to `RMAIL' to select another.
After using C-c C-y, the command C-c C-q (
be used to fill the paragraphs of the yanked old message or messages. One
use of C-c C-q fills all such paragraphs, each one separately.
Turning on Mail mode (which C-x m does automatically) calls the
text-mode-hook, if it is not void or
nil, and then calls
the value of
mail-mode-hook if that is not void or
