NAME

       calibre-smtp - calibre-smtp

          calibre-smtp [options] [from to text]

       Send mail using the SMTP protocol. calibre-smtp has two modes of operation. In the compose
       mode you specify from to and text and these are used to build and send an  email  message.
       In the filter mode, calibre-smtp reads a complete email message from STDIN and sends it.

       text is the body of the email message.  If text is not specified, a complete email message
       is read from STDIN.  from is the email address of the sender and to is the  email  address
       of  the  recipient. When a complete email is read from STDIN, from and to are only used in
       the SMTP negotiation, the message headers are not modified.

       Whenever you pass arguments  to  calibre-smtp  that  have  spaces  in  them,  enclose  the
       arguments in quotation marks. For example: "/some path/with spaces"

       --cafile
              Path  to  a  file of concatenated CA certificates in PEM format, used to verify the

       --dont-verify-server-certificate
              Do not verify the server certificate when connecting using TLS. This used to be the
              default  behavior  in calibre versions before 3.27. If you are using a relay with a
              self-signed or otherwise invalid certificate, you can use this  option  to  restore
              the pre 3.27 behavior

       --encryption-method, -e
              Encryption  method  to use when connecting to relay. Choices are TLS, SSL and NONE.
