NAME

rmail - handle remote mail received via uucp
 
 

SYNOPSIS

/usr/sbin/rmail recipient ...
 
 

DESCRIPTION

Rmail is a wrapper around masqmail. It reads a mail message on standard input and passes it to masqmail's standard input. Rmail only removes the first line from the input and constructs the return path from it.
 
Such a first line:
 
From user Wed Jan 9 12:43:35 1985 remote from host Date: 9 Jan 1985 8:39 EST
 
would generate this call to masqmail:
 
masqmail -i -f user@host -- bob@example.org
 
(If ``bob@example.org'' was the argument to the rmail call.))
