       The file /etc/ is used by emil(1) to decide which conversions should be applied  to
       a  specific  Internet  message.  Conversion  is  controlled  by the combination of Sender,
       Recipient and Recipient_host and the corresponding group line.

       When emil is executed it first visits /etc/ with the  arguments  Sender,  Recipient
       and  Recipient_host  to  extract  the  name  of  target  group (as specified by the member
       fields). A subsequent check with the group  fields  yields  the  target  group  structure,
       containing  charset,  format,  bin,  textenc  and  henc.  Then the Sender and Recipient is
       swapped to get the corresponding information about the sender.


       Commands may appear in any order. They are all ended with a semi colon ";".

              group  Defines a group by a group name and a comma separated list of options.

                     Group_name - Name of the group.

                     charset - Specifies the charset used by the group, according to RFC1345.

                     format - Specifies the format  used  by  the  group.   Pick  one  of:  MIME,
                     MAILTOOL, RFC822 or TRANSPARENT.  Default is RFC822.

                     appletype - Specifies the format to be used for applefile attachments.  Pick
                     one of Binhex, appleDouble or appleSingle.

                     bin - Specifies the encoding to be used for binary attachments.  Pick one of
                     BAse64, BInhex or Uuencode.

                     textenc  -  Specifies the encoding to be used for text.  Pick one of BAse64,
                     BInhex, Uuencode, Quoted-printable, 8bit, Se or 7bit. 7bit is default.  When
                     7bit  is  chosen the text is first converted to ISO-8859-1 and then the 8bit
                     characters are replaced by the english characters with closest  resemblance.
                     When  Se  is  chosen  the text is first converted to ISO-8859-1 and then the
                     8bit characters are replaced by the appropriate characters as  specified  by
                     some national variants of ISO-646. This special conversion is suited to work
                     in Sweden but works probably also for other european languages.

                     henc - Specifies the encoding to be used for  header  lines.   Pick  one  of
                     Base64,  Quoted-printable,  8bit or Se, 7bit.  7bit is default. If BAse64 or
                     Quoted-Printable is selected headers  are  converted  according  to  RFC1522
                     (MIME-II).  7bit and Se behaives like in the textenc field.

              match  This field is used to build a list of types and the corresponding expression
                     in the given context.

                     Context - One of MAILTOOL, MIME, BINHEX or UUENCODE.

                     OUT - The generic type of the field

                     Match_String - A quoted string that corresponds to the Context of the field.
                     For  MAILTOOL  Match_String  defines  the Sun Mailtool X-Sun-Data_type to be
                     used. For MIME  Match_String  defines  the  content-type  to  be  used.  For
                     UUENCODE  Match_String  defines  the  file  name  extension to be used.  For
                     BINHEX Match_String defines the merged two 4byte strings Type and Auth info.

              member Defines members of a group given as a group name and a comma separated  list
                     of  the  triples  Recipient,  Sender  and Recipient_host.  Either one in the
                     triples can be totally or partly replaced by a wildcard '*'.

                     Group_name - Name of the group.

                     Sender - Sender's mail address.

                     Recipient - Recipient's mail address.

                     Recipient_host - Name of the recipient host or relay.

       mailer Defines a mailer (or tags a program) as a mailer name and a comma separated list of
              arguments that makes up the execv vector of the program to execute.

              Mailer_name - Name of the mailer.

              Path - Path of the program to execute.

              Program - Name of the program to execute

              Arguments  - A list of each command line argument to use when invoking the program.
              To be suitable for mail programs you can  specify  variables  representing  sender,
              recipient and mail relay. These are specified by $s, $r and $x respectively.
