NAME

       lsmbox  -  list  number  of total, old unread, and new messages for the
       specified mailbox(es)

SYNOPSIS

       lsmbox [OPTION]...  [MAILBOX]...

DESCRIPTION

       lsmbox lists the number of messages in a mailbox.  Both  total,  unread
       but  old,  and  new  messages can be listed, for one or several mailbox
       files.  Non-existing or empty mailboxes will be silently  ignored.   If
       the  program  has  been compiled with curses support, you can execute a
       predefined command on a mailbox by  choosing  that  mailbox  using  the
       cursor  keys and pressing enter.  If the program has been compiled with
       ncurses, the command can also be executed by clicking  on  the  mailbox
       with the mouse-pointer.

       By   default,   lsmbox   will   look   in   $MAIL   (if   defined)   or
       /var/spool/mail/USERNAME for the inbox, and in  $HOME/Mail/  for  other
       mailboxes.   This  can  be  overridden by changing the default paths in
       $HOME/.lsmboxrc.  See lsmboxrc(5) for further details.  If $HOME is not
       defined  on your system, the program will look in the current directory
       for mailboxes.

       If no mailbox is given as an argument,  the  program  will  default  to
       listing  information about the mailboxes listed in $HOME/.lsmboxrc.  If
       no default mailboxes have been specified in that file, or if that  file
       does not exist, the program will abort with an error.

       A  filename  of  !  denotes  your inbox.  A leading ("=") or ("+") in a
       filename will be expanded into the path to your mail-directory.

       If the name of a mailbox given at the  command-line  contains  a  path-
       separator  ("/"),  it is assumed that the default mailbox path shall be
       ignored for that entry, unless it has a leading ("=") or ("+").

OPTIONS

       -c, --continuous
              Update statistics continuously rather  than  just  listing  them
              once.  Exit with ‘q’ (waits for the next mailcheck to finish) or
              ‘<ctrl> + c’ (aborts immediately).  Note: this  option  is  only
              available if the program has been compiled with curses support

       -i, --check-interval
              Interval in seconds between each update of the statistics.  This
              option overrides the environment variable $MAILCHECK.   Using  a
              low  interval will give you faster notification of newly arrived
              e-mail, but will put increased load on your system.  Note:  this
              option  is  only available if the program has been compiled with
              curses support

       -n, --new-only
              Only display mailboxes with new messages (and old unread, if the
              mark_old option has been unset)

       -o, --no-old
              Do not display the number of old messages each mailbox contains

       -p, --padding
              Width  to  use  for  the  mailbox column; leave empty to use the
              smallest possible

       -s, --no-summary
              Do not display a summary of the statistics for all mailboxes

       -S, --short-names
              Only display the name of the mailbox rather than the full path

       -t, --no-total
              Do not display total number of messages each mailbox contains

       --help Display help for the command

       --version
              Display version and author information

ENVIRONMENT

       MAILCHECK
              Interval in seconds between each update of the statistics.

       To  get  information  about the mailbox test which resides in your home
       directory:

            lsmbox ~/test
