getmail_mbox(1) User Commands getmail_mbox(1)
getmail_mbox - read a message from stdin and deliver to a named mboxrd-
format mbox file with fcntl-style locking.
getmail_mbox [OPTION] PATH
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.
