NAME

       whom - report to whom a message would go

SYNOPSIS

       whom [-alias aliasfile] [-check | -nocheck] [-draft] [-draftfolder +folder] [-draftmessage
            msg] [-nodraftfolder] [file] [-version] [-help]

DESCRIPTION

       Whom is used to expand the headers of a message into a set  of  addresses  and  optionally
       verify that those addresses are deliverable at that time (if -check is given).

       The  -draftfolder  +folder  and  -draftmessage  msg  switches  invoke the nmh draft folder
       facility.  This is an advanced (and highly useful) feature.  Consult the  mh-draft(5)  man
       page for more information.

       The files specified by the profile entry “Aliasfile:” and any additional alias files given
       by the -alias aliasfile switch will be read (more than one file, each preceded by  -alias,
       can be named). See mh-alias(5) for more information.

FILES

       $HOME/.mh_profile          The user profile

BUGS

       With the -check option, whom makes no guarantees that the addresses listed as being ok are
       really deliverable, rather, an address being listed as ok means that at the time that whom
       was  run  the  address  was thought to be deliverable by the transport service.  For local
       addresses, this is absolute; for network addresses, it means that the host is  known;  for
       uucp addresses, it (often) means that the UUCP network is available for use.
