NAME¶rmail - handle remote mail received via uucp
SYNOPSIS¶/usr/sbin/rmail recipient ...
DESCRIPTION¶Rmail is a wrapper around masqmail. It reads a mail message on standard input and passes it to masqmail's standard input. Rmail only removes the first line from the input and constructs the return path from it.
Such a first line:
From user Wed Jan 9 12:43:35 1985 remote from host Date: 9 Jan 1985 8:39 EST
would generate this call to masqmail:
masqmail -i -f user@host -- email@example.com
(If ``firstname.lastname@example.org'' was the argument to the rmail call.))
AUTHOR¶Masqmail was written by Oliver Kurth. It is now maintained by Markus Schnalke <email@example.com>.
You will find the newest version of masqmail at http://marmaro.de/prog/masqmail/. There is also a mailing list, you will find information about it at masqmail's main site.

BUGS¶Address translations from domain!user to user@domain is not done. This rmail program is only very basic. See sendmail for a more sophisticated rmail implementation.
Please report bugs to the mailing list.
