NAME

SYNOPSIS

DESCRIPTION

     The from utility prints out the mail header lines from the invoker's mailbox.

     The following options are available:

     -c      Just print a count of messages and exit.

     -f file
             The supplied file is examined instead of the invoker's mailbox.  If the -f option is
             used, the user argument should not be used.  Read from standard input if file name
             “-” is given.

     -s sender
             Only mail from addresses containing the supplied string are printed.

     If user is given, the user's mailbox is examined instead of the invoker's own mailbox.
     (Privileges are required.)
