 +
 +**MA - Change Message Area**
 +
 +  Data: # + - NOLIST
 +  ​
 +  This menu command allows the user to change to a new message area.  If
 +  no optional data is present, then a list of message areas will be shown
 +  to the user.
 +  ​
 +  If the + sign is on the optional data field, Mystic will select the
 +  next available message area that the user has access to.
 +  ​
 +  If the - sign is on the optional data field, Mystic will select the
 +  previous available message area that the user has access to.
 +               
 +  If NOLIST is provided on the optional data field, Mystic will prompt the
 +  user to select a message area but will not show the list of areas unless
 +  the user asks to see it by entering ? to list.
 +  ​
 +  If a message area Unique ID is presented on the option data field, Mystic
 +  will change to the message area that is linked to the supplied unique ID.
 +
 +**MC - Check Private BBS E-mail**
 +
 +  Data: /NOLIST /UNREAD
 +  ​
 +  This menu command checks the user's private e-mail box for messages and
 +  provides a list of all messages in the private mailbox followed by a
 +  prompt asking the user if they would like to read the messages.
 +  ​
 +  If the /NOLIST option is supplied on the optional data field, Mystic will
 +  skip listing the messages and go directly to reading new e-mail messages.
 +  ​
 +  If the /UNREAD option is supplied, Mystic will list only messages that are
 +  flagged as "​unread"​ in the list and prompt only if there are unread
 +  messages.
 +
 +**MD - Set Message Last Read By Date**
 +
 +  Data: /ALL
 +  ​
 +  This menu command allows the user to set their "last read" message in
 +  each message base by inputting a date.  After a valid date is supplied
 +  Mystic will ask the user if they would like to set this date for the
 +  current base or all bases. ​ If the user selects all bases, then every
 +  message base regardless of group will be updated.
 +  ​
 +  If the /ALL optional data is provided, Mystic will skip the prompt and
 +  update all message bases with the user supplied date.
 +
 +**MF - View/Scan Draft Messages**
 +
 +  Data: /SCAN
 +  ​
 +  When posting a message, users will have the option to save a message as
 +  a draft and resume the message post at another time.
 +  ​
 +  If a user loses their session for any reason such as a disconnection or
 +  they run out of session time while posting a message, Mystic will also
 +  automatically save a draft of their message post.
 +  ​
 +  This option will present a list of available saved draft messages and
 +  provide the user the ability to continue a post or remove the draft
 +  message.
 +  ​
 +  If the /SCAN option is provided on the optional data field, Mystic will
 +  scan and if there are draft message saved, it will ask the user if they
 +  would like to resume their draft messages. ​ If there are no draft
 +  messages Mystic will do nothing.
 +    ​
 +**MG - Change Message Group**
 +
 +  Data: "​+",​ "​-",​ <Group ID>, or None
 +  ​
 +  This action will list the Message Groups that the user has access to,
 +  excluding any groups flagged as "​hidden"​ and then prompt the user to
 +  select a group.
 +  ​
 +  If the data is set to "​+"​ then Mystic will move to the next available
 +  message group.
 +  ​
 +  If the data is set to "​-"​ then Mystic will move to the previous available
 +  message group.
 +  ​
 +  If the Group Unique ID is supplied, Mystic will automatically change the
 +  user into the specific message group.
 +        ​
 +  When joining a message group, Mystic will display the "​group#"​ display file
 +  from the theme'​s text directory if it exists, where # is the group'​s ID.
 +
 +**MI - Message Index Reader**
 +
 +  Data: <​template filename with no extension>,​ or None
 +  ​
 +  The Message Base Index system presents users with a list of all message
 +  bases along with statistics of total, new, personal messages for each
 +  bases. ​ Users can scroll through and search through the list and select
 +  bases to read, search, post, subscribe or unsubscribe from.
 +                         
 +  The data field provides the template name which if left blank defaults to
 +  "​msg_index"​ and points to the template file to load.  This field should
 +  not include a file extension as .ini will be appended to it.
 +          ​
 +  The template file contains all of the visual configurations for this
 +  function as well as many other options that can completely customize the
 +  experience. ​ For example, one could copy the default msg_index.ini
 +  template to msg_change.ini,​ and then modify its visual and functional
 +  settings so that it pops up a scroll box of message bases for the user to
 +  change their current message base.
 +         
 +  The same could be done to pop up a list of message bases that allows the
 +  user to toggle which bases will be included in scans for new messages. ​ To
 +  use these alternative templates, simply execute MI with the data field of
 +  "​msg_change"​ or whatever the custom template filename you've created is.
 +
 +**ML - Browser/​Search Network Nodelists**
 +
 +  Data: None
 +  ​
 +  This command opens up a network node list browser which allows the user to
 +  list FidoNet-style networks by Zone, Net, or search by Address or Text.
 +
 +**MM - Send Mass BBS E-mail**
 +
 +  Data: None
 +  ​
 +  This command allows the user to send bulk private BBS email to users using
 +  either an access string, a list of user names, or all users on the BBS
 +  system. ​ This function is typically only made available to System Operators

 +**MP - Post New Message**
 +
 +  Data: /TO: /SUBJ: /ADDR: /F
 +  ​
 +  This menu command allows the user to post a message in the current
 +  message bases.
 +  ​
 +  If /​TO:<​text>​ is provided, the post can be automatically addressed to
 +  the supplied username in <​text>​. ​ Note that spaces should be replaced
 +  by underscores (_) when supplying this.
 +  ​
 +  If /SUBJ: is provided, the post will have its subject automatically
 +  set.  Spaces should be replaced with underscores.
 +  ​
 +  If /ADDR: is provided, the post will have its FTN Network address
 +  automatically set.
 +  ​
 +  If /F is provided, the post will be forced meaning the user will not
 +  be able to abort posting the message when they are in the message
 +  editor.
