NAME

       whom - report to whom a message would go

SYNOPSIS

       whom [-alias aliasfile] [-check | -nocheck] [-draft] [-draftfolder
            +folder] [-draftmessage msg] [-nodraftfolder] [file] [-version]
            [-help]

DESCRIPTION

       Whom is used to expand the headers of a message into a set of addresses
       and optionally verify that those addresses are deliverable at that time
       (if -check is given).

       The  -draftfolder +folder and -draftmessage msg switches invoke the nmh
       draft folder  facility.   This  is  an  advanced  (and  highly  useful)
       feature.  Consult the mh-draft(5) man page for more information.

       The   files  specified  by  the  profile  entry  “Aliasfile:”  and  any
       additional alias files given by the -alias  aliasfile  switch  will  be
       read  (more  than one file, each preceded by -alias, can be named). See
       mh-alias(5) for more information.

BUGS

       With the -check option, whom makes no  guarantees  that  the  addresses
       listed  as  being  ok  are really deliverable, rather, an address being
       listed as ok means that at the time that whom was run the  address  was
       thought  to  be  deliverable  by  the  transport  service.   For  local
       addresses, this is absolute; for network addresses, it means  that  the
       host  is  known;  for  uucp  addresses,  it (often) means that the UUCP
       network is available for use.
