When PMDF MAIL displays a message part of type "image", a subprocess is created to display the message part. By default, PMDF MAIL will not wait for the subprocess to terminate, thus allowing you to continue reading your mail while the image is displayed.
Issue the command
SET IMAGE_WAITto instruct PMDF MAIL to always wait for the viewing subprocess to terminate prior to continuing. Use the command
SET NOIMAGE_WAITto inhibit waiting on the subprocess.
To cause PMDF MAIL to display an image and then wait until the image viewer is exited, issue the command
This will prevent, for instance, cases where the image viewer's output becomes interspersed with output from PMDF MAIL on your terminal screen.
