elm user[node]will invoke elm in sending mode. The message:
To: user@nodewill then be displayed. After entering the subject, the string
Copies to:will prompt you for additional recipient names. A carriage return will leave that field empty.
The editor (pico by default) will be invoked, and the composition of the message may begin. The editor invoked may be changed by using the option menu, discussed in the previous section.
If you use pico, elm will prompt you to save the file (it will give you a suggested name). It does need to save the file before sending it.
When the message is ready to be sent, issue the editor command to save the file. elm will come back with the message
And now: s e)dit message, h)eaders, c)opy, i)spell, !)shell, s)end, or f)orget p)gpmessage. Answering to that message will leave elm completely and bring you to the UNIX prompt.
