NAME

       mhmail - send or read mail

SYNOPSIS

       mhmail [addrs ...]  [-body text] [-cc addrs [-from addr] [-subject subject] [-version]
            [-help]

DESCRIPTION

       mhmail is intended as a replacement for  the  standard  Berkeley  mail  program  (mail  or
       mailx),  which  is  compatible with nmh.  This program is intended for the use of programs
       such as cron, which expect to send mail automatically to various users.  It is  also  used
       by  various nmh commands to mail various error notifications.  Although mhmail can be used
       interactively, it is recommended that comp and send be used instead to send messages.

       When invoked without arguments, it simply invokes inc to incorporate new messages from the
       user's maildrop.  When one or more users is specified, a message is read from the standard
       input and spooled to a temporary file.  mhmail then invokes post  with  the  name  of  the
       temporary file as its argument to deliver the message to the specified user.

       The -subject subject switch can be used to specify the “Subject:” field of the message.

       By  default,  mhmail  will  read  the message to be sent from the standard input.  You can
       specify the text of the message at the command line with the -body text  switch.   If  the
       standard  input has zero length, mhmail will not send the message.  You can use the switch
       -body ” to force an empty message.

       Normally, addresses appearing as arguments are put in the “To:” field.  If the -cc  switch
       is used, all addresses following it are placed in the “cc:” field.

       By  using  -from  addr,  you can specify the “From:” header of the draft.  Naturally, post
       will fill-in the “Sender:” header correctly.
