You can save several messages in the same file by using the same filename each time you save a message. The contents of each message you save will be added to the end of the file as you save them.

Once you have a file that contains several messages, you can use the mail program to read these messages by typing mail -f filename, where filename is the name of the file in which you have saved the messages, then pressing <Enter>. For example, if you wanted to use the mail program to look back at the message from Doug, you could type mail -f fromdoug:
