whom - report to whom a message would go
whom [-alias aliasfile] [-check | -nocheck] [-draft] [-draftfolder
+folder] [-draftmessage msg] [-nodraftfolder] [file] [-version]
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.
$HOME/.mh_profile The user profile
Path: To determine the user’s nmh directory
Draft-Folder: To find the default draft-folder
Aliasfile: For a default alias file
postproc: Program to post the message
‘file’ defaults to <mh-dir>/draft
‘-alias’ defaults to /etc/nmh/MailAliases
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.
