NAME

       rcvdist - asynchronously redistribute new mail

SYNOPSIS

       /usr/lib/mh/rcvdist [-form formfile] [switches for postproc] address1
            ...  [-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
       nmh  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

       By default, rcvdist uses the program post to do the actual delivery  of
       the  message,  although  this  can  be changed by defining the postproc
       profile component.
