Format: tell <player> <message>

The tell command is used to send a message across the mud to
other players currently on the mud or to people on other muds. Valid
tell <what> <message>
This will send the message to the specified person/people.
What can be any of the following:
-<category> sends a tell to everyone in <category> if it is one of
your notification categories.
:<rclist> tells to everyone on the specified rclist. Go into the
mailer and type 'list' to get a list of the rclists.
. tells to whoever you last sent a tell to. This can be one person
or a group of people.
<person> send a tell to person.
<person>@<mud> send an intermud tell to person at mud.
Any one or combination of these can be used. When more than one
group is selected, a comma ',' must be used to seperate them.
tell bob, ., :eternal, -friends hi
This would tell bob, the group you last sent a tell to,
everyone in the eternal cabal and everyone in your friends
It is not necessary to have a space after each comma.
All exclaimation marks and spaces will be ignored if in the <what>
section of the tell.
Capitalization is ignored in the <what> portion of the tell. "BOB"
is the same as "bob".

is saved. Example: If you did tell /last 10, the next time you did
