getmail_mbox(1)                  User Commands                 getmail_mbox(1)



NAME
       getmail_mbox - read a message from stdin and deliver to a named mboxrd-
       format mbox file with fcntl-style locking.

SYNOPSIS
       getmail_mbox [OPTION] PATH

DESCRIPTION
       Deliver a mail message from standard input, to the  mboxrd-format  mbox
       file  named  PATH.   PATH must start with a dot or a slash and must not
       end with a slash.  fcntl-type locking is used; if your system  requires
       another type of locking (such as flock or dotlock ), use an MDA config-
       ured for that style of locking instead.

       getmail_mbox uses  the  SENDER  environment  variable  to  construct  a
       Return-Path: header field and the contents of the RECIPIENT environment
       variable to construct a Delivered-To: header field at the  top  of  the
       message.  SENDER is also used in creating the mbox From_ line.

       --verbose, -v
              print a status message on success
