The mhmail program is intended as a replacement for the standard mail programs, bellmail and ucbmail. See binmail(1) and mail(1) for more details of these mail programs. When invoked without arguments, it simply invokes inc to incorporate new messages from the user's maildrop. When one or more users is specified, a message is read from the standard input and spooled to a temporary file. The mhmail program then invokes post with the name of the temporary file as its argument to deliver the message to the specified user.
Normally, people will use
to send messages.
Messages with a null body part will not be sent by mhmail. You must include some body text in all messages to be sent by mhmail.
For this version, the
option only supports the
smtp. Additional values are supported for use only
with other mail systems.
Program to incorporate a maildrop into a folder.
