getmail_mbox(1)			 User Commands		       getmail_mbox(1)

NAME
       getmail_mbox - read a message from stdin	and deliver to a named mboxrd-
       format mbox file	with fcntl-style locking.

SYNOPSIS
       getmail_mbox [OPTION] PATH

DESCRIPTION
       Deliver a mail message from standard input, to the  mboxrd-format  mbox
       file  named  PATH.   PATH must start with a dot or a slash and must not
       end with	a slash.  fcntl-type locking is	used; if your system  requires
       another type of locking (such as	flock or dotlock ), use	an MDA config-
       ured for	that style of locking instead.

       getmail_mbox uses  the  SENDER  environment  variable  to  construct  a
       Return-Path: header field and the contents of the RECIPIENT environment
       variable	to construct a Delivered-To: header field at the  top  of  the
       message.	 SENDER	is also	used in	creating the mbox From_	line.

       --verbose, -v
	      print a status message on	success
