a way to config which email headers are forwarded?

Hi,

Is there a way to config which email headers are forwarded? Presently, exmh 
includes all headers of a forwarded message, and I end up manually pruning 
them, which is a real pain when forwarding multiple messages. Oh, yes, I'm 
talking about the textual-brute-force forwarding mode invoked by the [Forward] 
button by default. Am not talking about mime-based message forwarding.

thanks,

=JeffH

 sounds like you want to use the MH/nmh forw(1) ‘-format’,
 and possibly ‘-filter FILE’, options.  I have no idea how
 to do that from EXMH.

cheers!

Why not use ~/.mh_profile entries, for example:

forw: -form .components/forwcomps -filter .components/mhl.forward

HTH....

thanks to brian & kevin -- i got it workin'

turns that on my installation, just adding this entry to the end of my 
~/.mh_profile did the trick...

  forw: -form ~/Mail/forwcomps -filter ~/Mail/mhl.forward

thanks again,

That's something I always wanted too. Thanks. 
BTW, it at first did not work because .mh_profile requires the line to 
start in column 1, so I had to delete the indentation.

Excellent!  

The same thing works for reply:

repl: .... -filter mhl.forward

You may need to give a full path to the mhl.forward file.
