      uucleanup - uucp spool directory clean-up

      /usr/lbin/uucp/uucleanup [-C time] [-D time] [-W time] [-X time] [-m
      string] [-o time] [-s system] [-x debug_level]

      uucleanup scans the spool directories for old files and takes
      appropriate action to remove them.  Depending on the options selected,
      uucleanup performs the following:

	   +  Informs the requestor of send and/or receive requests for
	      systems that cannot be reached.

	   +  Returns mail that cannot be delivered to the sender.

	   +  Removes all other files.

      In addition, uucleanup warns users of requestors who have been waiting
      for a given number of days (the default is 1 day).  Note that unless
      time is specifically set, the default time values for the following
      options are used.

      uucleanup recognizes the following options:

	   -Ctime	  Any C. files greater or equal to time days old are
			  removed with appropriate information to the
			  requestor.  The default time is 7 days.

	   -Dtime	  Any D. files greater or equal to time days old are
			  removed.  An attempt is made to deliver mail
			  messages and execute news when appropriate.  The
			  default time is 7 days.

	   -Wtime	  Any C. files equal to time cause a message to be
			  mailed to the requestor warning about the delay in
			  contacting the remote.  The message includes the
			  JOBID, and in the case of mail, the mail message.
			  The administrator can include a message line
			  telling who to call to correct the problem (see
			  the -m option).  The default time is 1 day.

	   -Xtime	  Any X. files greater than or equal to time days
			  old are removed.  The D. files are probably not
			  present (if they were, the X. could be executed).
			  But, if D. files are present, they are taken care
			  of by D. processing.	The default time is 2 days.
