RMAIL(8)                                                              RMAIL(8)

NAME
       rmail - handle remote mail received via uucp

SYNOPSIS
       rmail [-D domain] [-T] user ...

DESCRIPTION
       Rmail   interprets  incoming  mail  received  via  uucp(1),  collapsing
       ``From'' lines in the form generated by  mail.local(8)  into  a  single
       line of the form ``return-path!sender'', and passing the processed mail
       on to sendmail(8).

       Rmail is explicitly designed for use with uucp and sendmail.

   Flags
       -D     Use the specified  domain  instead  of  the  default  domain  of
              ``UUCP''.

       -T     Turn on debugging.

SEE ALSO
       uucp(1), mail.local(8), sendmail(8)

HISTORY
       The rmail program appeared in 4.2BSD.

BUGS
       Rmail should not reside in /bin.
