NAME

     push - fetch mail via POP

SYNOPSIS

     push [-4 | --krb4] [-5 | --krb5] [-v | --verbose] [-f | --fork]
          [-l | --leave] [--from] [-c | --count] [--headers=headers] [-p
          port-spec | --port=port-spec] po-box filename

DESCRIPTION

     push retrieves mail from the post office box po-box, and stores the mail
     in mbox format in filename.  The po-box can have any of the following
     formats:
           ‘hostname:username’
           ‘po:hostname:username’
           ‘username@hostname’
           ‘po:username@hostname’
           ‘hostname’
           ‘po:username’

     If no username is specified, push assumes that it’s the same as on the
     local machine; hostname defaults to the value of the MAILHOST environment
     variable.

     Supported options:

     -4, --krb4
             use Kerberos 4 (if compiled with support for Kerberos 4)

     -5, --krb5
             use Kerberos 5 (if compiled with support for Kerberos 5)

     -f, --fork
             fork before starting to delete messages

     -l, --leave
             don’t delete fetched mail

     --from  behave like from.

     -c, --count
             first print how many messages and bytes there are.

     --headers=headers
             a list of comma-separated headers that should get printed.

     -p port-spec, --port=port-spec
             use this port instead of the default ‘kpop’ or ‘1109’.

     The default is to first try Kerberos 5 authentication and then, if that
     fails, Kerberos 4.

ENVIRONMENT

     MAILHOST
             points to the post office, if no other hostname is specified.

EXAMPLES

           $ push cornfield:roosta ~/.emacs-mail-crash-box

     tries to fetch mail for the user roosta from the post office at
     “cornfield”, and stores the mail in ~/.emacs-mail-crash-box (you are
     using Gnus, aren’t you?)

           $ push --from -5 havregryn

     tries to fetch From: lines for current user at post office “havregryn”
     using Kerberos 5.

HISTORY

     push was written while waiting for movemail to finish getting the mail.
