       This is a simple drop-in  replacement  for  sendmail  to  forward  mail
       directly  to  an  SMTP  gateway.   You  should always specify your SMTP
       gateway using --mailer option (the best place  to  do  so  is  in  your
       configuration file).

EXAMPLES

       Deliver  mail  via  SMTP  gateway  at  "mail.example.com",  reading its
       contents for recipients of the message.

              mail.remote --mailer smtp://mail.example.com -t

       Deliver mail only to "devnull@foo.bar"

              mail.remote --mailer smtp://mail.example.com devnull@foo.bar

       Deliver  mail  to  "devnull@foo.bar"  as  well  as  to  the  recipients
       specified in the message itself:

              mail.remote --mailer smtp://mail.example.com -t devnull@foo.bar
