General-Purpose Mail Package

There are several commands allowing you to quit the compose mode.
Typing the end-of-file character (‘C-D’) on a line alone finishes
compose mode and sends the message to its destination. The ‘C-D’
character looses its special meaning if
ignoreeof mail variable
If mail variable
dot is set, typing dot (‘.’) on a line
alone achieves the same effect as ‘C-D’ above.
Finally, using ‘~.’ escape always quits compose mode and sends out the composed message.
To abort composing of a message without sending it, type interrupt
character (by default, ‘C-C’) twice. This behavior is disabled
when mail variable
ignore is set. In this case, you can use
‘~x’ escape to achieve the same effect.
