Sorry it's hard to explain what I mean. Basically, I have some keybinds set
up like this:
macro browser l "<c>^u/home/dive/mail/lists<return>"
Works fine, but, I want to be able to cd into an mbox. I can't with <c>
because I get an error about it not being a folder. So is there a command I
can use in a macro or bind that will cd to an mbox?
