     mdeliver — deliver messages or import mbox file


     mdeliver [-c] [-v] [-X flags] dir < message
     mdeliver -M [-c] [-v] [-X flags] dir < mbox


     mdeliver adds a message given on the standard input as a new message in the maildir dir.

     When -M is used, mdeliver will regard the standard input as an MBOXRD mailbox, split it on
     “From ” and deliver each message, decoding it according to the MBOXRD convention.  mdeliver
     will set the mtime according to the value of ‘Date:’ and the maildir flags according to the
     value of ‘Status:’ or ‘X-Status:’.

     The messages are delivered in a reliable way and use the default umask(2).

     Please note that no syntactical checks are performed on the messages.

     The options are as follows:

     -M      Deliver each message of an mbox.

     -c      Deliver messages into cur/, not new/ (the default).

     -v      Print each new message filename after delivery.

     -X flg  Override the flags of the new message file to be flg.


     The mdeliver utility exits 0 on success, and >0 if an error occurs.
