Lumail - The console email client

Lua primitives: reply()

NOTE: Lumail-legacy has been superseded by Lumail 2.x, which has a wholly unified Lua API.

This function will open your configured editor with the current message quoted in it, such that you can trim and reply to it.

You may specify the editor to use via the editor() primitive.

After prompting for confirmation the outgoing mail will then be sent, and a copy written to your configured sent-mail folder.


This function has been available since version 0.07.
