RMAIL(8)                OpenBSD System Manager's Manual               RMAIL(8)

NAME
     rmail - handle remote mail received via uucp

SYNOPSIS
     rmail user [...]

DESCRIPTION
     The rmail utility interprets incoming mail received via uucp, collapsing
     ``From'' lines in the form generated by mail.local(8) into a single line
     of the form ``return-path!sender'', and passing the processed mail on to
     sendmail(8).

     rmail is explicitly designed for use with uucp and sendmail(8).

     Note: uucp is not part of the base OpenBSD system.  It comes as part of
     the uucp suite, and can be installed via ports(7) or packages(7).

SEE ALSO
     mail.local(8), sendmail(8)

HISTORY
     The rmail utility appeared in 4.2BSD.

BUGS
     rmail should not reside in /bin.
