NAME
       new - report on nmh folders with	new messages
       fnext - set current nmh folder to next folder with new messages
       fprev - set current nmh folder to previous folder with new messages
       unseen -	scan any new messages in all nmh folders

SYNOPSIS
       new [-help] [-version] [sequences] [-mode mode] [-folders foldersfile]

       fnext is	equivalent to new -mode	fnext

       fprev is	equivalent to new -mode	fprev

       unseen is equivalent to new -mode unseen

DESCRIPTION
       new, in its default mode, produces a one-line-per-folder	listing	of all
       folders which contain messages in the specified sequences,  or  in  the
       sequence(s)  listed  in the profile entry "Unseen-Sequence".  Each line
       consists	of the folder name, the	total number of	messages in the	speci-
       fied  sequences,	 and  a	list of	messages derived from the .mh_sequence
       file.  For example:

	    foo	    11.* 40-50
	    bar	   380.	 760-772 824-828
	     total    391.

       The `*' on foo indicates	that it	is the current folder.	The last  line
       shows the total number of messages in the desired sequences.

       new  crawls  the	 folder	hierarchy recursively to find all folders, and
       prints them in lexicographic order.  Override this behavior by  provid-
       ing  a  foldersfile containing the pre-sorted list of folders which new
       should check, one per line.

       In fnext	and fprev modes, new changes to	the next or previous  matching
       folder, respectively.

       In unseen mode, new executes scan sequences for each matching folder.
