NAME

       rcvdist - asynchronously redistribute new mail

SYNOPSIS

       rcvdist [-form formfile] [switches for spost] RECIPIENT...  [-Version] [-help]

DESCRIPTION

       The  rcvdist program will accept a message on its standard input and resend a copy of this
       message to all of the addresses listed on its command line.

       When a message is redistributed with the rcvdist command, the  format  of  the  Resent-xxx
       header  fields  is  controlled  by  the  forms  files  `rcvdistcomps'.   If  a  file named
       `rcvdistcomps' exists in the user's mmh directory, it will be used instead of the  default
       one.  You may specify an alternate forms file with the switch -form formfile.

       The  `rcvdistcomps'  file  uses  the format string facility described in mh-format(5).  In
       addition to the standard format escapes, rcvdist also recognizes the following  additional
       component escape:

            Escape    Returns  Description
            addresses string   the addresses to distribute to

       rcvdist uses the program spost to do the actual delivery of the message.

FILES

       /etc/mmh/rcvdistcomps      Default message skeleton
       or $HOME/.mmh/rcvdistcomps Rather than standard message skeleton

BUGS

       Only two return codes are meaningful, others should be.
