Mail mode provides special commands to move to particular header fields and to complete addresses in headers.
There are five commands to move point to particular header fields, all based on the prefix C-c C-f (`C-f' is for "field"). They are listed in the table above. If the field in question does not exist, these commands create one. We provide special motion commands for these particular fields because they are the fields users most often want to edit.
While editing a header field that contains mailing addresses, such as
`To:', `CC:' and `BCC:', you can complete a mailing
address by typing M-TAB (
mail-complete). It inserts
the full name corresponding to the address, if it can determine the full
name. The variable
mail-complete-style controls whether to insert
the full name, and what style to use, as in
(see section Mail Header Fields).
For completion purposes, the valid mailing addresses are taken to be the local users' names plus your personal mail aliases. You can specify additional sources of valid addresses; use the customization buffer to see the options for this.
If you type M-TAB in the body of the message, it invokes
ispell-complete-word, as in Text mode.
