Weeelll ... are you volunteering to write a nmh User Guide? :-) I
don't think the issue is troff know-how, or packaging ... it's getting
someone to sit down, fingers to keyboard, and type out a clear document.
As far as I know, there is no nmh package that does not include man
pages; if there is one, that should be fixed (is there one?)  I seem to
recall Laura's issue was more that she didn't know nmh was still being
developed.  And honestly, can't blame her there; who goes trolling
through man pages to see if a new feature was added when you weren't

Actually, a question to Laura ... how DID you find out that nmh was
still being worked on?  Did you happen to Google it?  Overhear people
talking about the new version in some chic Gothenburg cafè?  Might be
interesting to know.

I've thought of writing a relatively simple "intro" that would cover the
basics of configuring your email address, how to send and receive email,
and where to go from there.  That might not be too bad.
