I think is necessary start a new thread...

Yes,  this  was  on  the top of my to-do list: don't need to
enter dG on nvi...

Thanks, it's perfect.  There are a lot of things I wanted to
ask,  but  didn't  want  to abuse your patience. But now the
Pandora's box is open!  For now my abbreviation for mail  in
nvi corresponds to:
\&.de endofmail
\&.pl 0
\&.em endofmail
\&.nr HY 0
\&.nr HM 0
\&.pl 1000
I've seen that hyphenation in mail is a bad idea.
No other way to prevent multiple pages to \&.pl 1000?
There is a request like \&.mc for left margin character (`>')?

If anyone has a good tip for mutt-nvi-groff, I would be very grateful!
