AA.9 Rmail Attributes

Some labels such as `deleted' and `filed' have built-in meanings and are assigned to or removed from messages automatically at appropriate times; these labels are called attributes. Here is a list of Rmail attributes:

`unseen'
Means the message has never been current. Assigned to messages when they come from an inbox file, and removed when a message is made current. When you start Rmail, it initially shows the first message that has this attribute.
`deleted'
Means the message is deleted. Assigned by deletion commands and removed by undeletion commands (see section AA.4 Deleting Messages).
`filed'
Means the message has been copied to some other file. Assigned by the file output commands (see section AA.6 Multiple Rmail Files).
`answered'
Means you have mailed an answer to the message. Assigned by the r command (rmail-reply). See section AA.10 Sending Replies.
`forwarded'
Means you have forwarded the message. Assigned by the f command (rmail-forward). See section AA.10 Sending Replies.
`edited'
Means you have edited the text of the message within Rmail. See section AA.15 Editing Within a Message.
`resent'
Means you have resent the message. Assigned by the command M-x rmail-resend. See section AA.10 Sending Replies.

All other labels are assigned or removed only by the user, and have no standard meaning.
