       rcvstore - asynchronously incorporate mail into a folder


       /usr/lib/mh/rcvstore [+folder] [-create | -nocreate] [-unseen |
            -nounseen] [-zero | -nozero] [-sequence name ...]  [-public |
            -nopublic] [-version] [-help]


       Rcvstore  incorporates  a  message  from the standard input into an nmh
       folder.  This command  is  typically  used  in  conjunction  with  mail
       filtering  programs  such  as  slocal and procmail, to filter your mail
       into different folders.

       You may specify which folder to use with  +folder.   If  no  folder  is
       specified,  rcvstore  will use the folder given by a non-empty “Inbox:”
       entry in the user’s profile, else it will use the folder named “inbox”.

       If the switch -create is given (it is the default) and if the specified
       (or default) folder does not exist, then it will be created.   You  may
       disable  this  with  the  -nocreate option.  In this case rcvstore will
       exit if the specified folder does not exist.

       When the new message is incorporated into the folder,  it  is  assigned
       the next highest number for that folder.

       Rcvstore will incorporate anything except zero length messages into the
       user’s nmh folder.  It will not change the message in any way.

       If the user’s profile contains a “Msg-Protect: nnn” entry, it  will  be
       used  as the protection on the newly created message, otherwise the nmh
       default of 0644 will be used.  For all subsequent  operations  on  this
       message, this initially assigned protection will be preserved.

       If  the  switch  -unseen  is  given  (it  is on by default), and if the
       profile entry “Unseen-Sequence” is present and non-empty, then rcvstore
       will  add the newly incorporated message to each sequence named by this
       profile entry.  You may use  the  switch  -nounseen  to  disable  this.
       These sequences will not be zero’ed by rcvstore prior to adding the new

       Furthermore, the incoming message may be added to additional  sequences
       as  they  arrive  by  the  use  of  the  -sequence switch.  As with the
       commands pick and mark, you may also use the switches -zero and -nozero
       to specify whether to zero old sequences or not.  Similarly, use of the
       -public and -nopublic switches may be used to force these sequences  to
       be public or private sequences.

       No  context  changes  will be attempted, with the exception of sequence


       If you use the “Unseen-Sequence” profile entry, rcvstore could  try  to
       update  the  context while another nmh process is also trying to do so.
       This can cause the context to become corrupted.  To avoid this, do  not
       use rcvstore if you use the “Unseen-Sequence” profile entry.
