NAME
       maildir - safely	write data to a	qmail-style maildir

SYNOPSIS
       maildir dir

INTRODUCTION
       maildir	is  a shell script which invokes safecat.  It is equivalent to
       safecat dir/tmp dir/new.	 It saves a little typing for those  who  want
       to  use	qmail maildirs,	which have a fixed structure.  safecat,	on the
       other hand, allows the user to have one temporary  directory  for  many
       spool  directories. This	is occasionally	useful;	some people don't like
       to multiply the number of places	which need to be periodically  cleaned
       up.
