       mailer - script to warn users about their weak passwords


       mailer password-files


       This  manual page documents briefly the mailer command, which is part of the john package.
       This manual page was written for the Debian GNU/Linux distribution  because  the  original
       program  does not have a manual page.  john, better known as John the Ripper, is a tool to
       find weak passwords of users in a server.
       The mailer tool is useful to inform users which have been found to be using weak passwords
       by mail.

       You should edit the message mailer will send to the users, but remember to copy the script
       to a safe place before editing it, as it's generally a bad idea to modify things living in


       john(8), unafs(8), unique(8), unshadow(8).

       The  programs  are  documented fully by John's documentation, which should be available in
       /usr/share/doc/john or other location, depending on your system.
