MTHREAD(1)		FreeBSD	General	Commands Manual		    MTHREAD(1)

NAME
     mthread --	arrange	messages into discussions

SYNOPSIS
     mthread [-v] [-S msg] [msgs ...]

DESCRIPTION
     mthread groups messages together in parent/child relationships, based on
     which messages are	replies	to which others.  (See mmsg(7) for the message
     argument syntax.)

     If	no messages are	specified, mthread will	read filenames from the	stan-
     dard input, or use	the default sequence if	used interactively.

     mthread prints the	threaded messages separated by newlines	and indented
     according to their	depth in the message tree.  Unresolved Message-IDs are
     printed as-is.

     The options are as	follows:

     -v	     Do	not prune unresolved Message-IDs at the	top-level.

     -S	msg  Treat msg as optional message(s) that will	be added to threads
	     only if they are referenced.  Threads where all messages are op-
	     tional are	suppressed.  You can use -S to add an outbox folder,
	     for example, completing threads where your	replies	were missing.

EXIT STATUS
     The mthread utility exits 0 on success, and >0 if an error	occurs.
