The reply command is a slightly easier way to send a reply than using the send command. After reading the message, type reply or just r at the R> prompt:

As you can see, reply is similar to send, but you skip over the prompts for To, cc and Subject. The reply goes to the address in the From field of the message you received, and it has the same Subject field.

At the S> prompt, you can type quit if you decide not to send the reply after all.
