NAME
       pdeliver	- Deliver mail into a maildir mailbox

SYNOPSIS
       pdeliver	 [--help]  [--version]	[-q  QUOTA,  --quota  QUOTA]  [-Q NUM,
       --maxnum	NUM] [-m DIR, --mailboxdir DIR]	[-f FORMAT,  --format  FORMAT]
       [-l FILE, --logfile FILE] [-i ID, --id ID] mailbox

DESCRIPTION
       This  command  awaits a mail on STDIN formatted according to the	format
       specified with the -f option. It	will write the	mail  to  the  mailbox
       specified on the	command	line in	maildir	format.

OPTIONS
       --help Get help on parameters.

       --version
	      Print version information.

       -q QUOTA, --quota QUOTA
	      This  is	the  quota for the total size of the mailbox in	MBytes
	      (1024*1024 bytes)	or 0, if the total size	of the mailbox	should
	      not be checked. Default is 0.

       -Q NUM, --maxnum	NUM
	      This  is	the quota for the number of mails in the mailbox or 0,
	      if the check should not be performed. Default is 0.

       -m DIR, --mailboxdir DIR
	      This is the directory where all mailbox directories are. Default
	      is /pop.

       -f FORMAT, --format FORMAT
	      Format of	the mail an STDIN. There are three mail	formats	under-
	      stood by pdeliver:

       LF     Each line	in the mail ends in a line feed	(LF)  character.  This
	      is the common format for UNIX text files.

       CRLF   Each  line in the	mail ends in a carriage	return (CR), line feed
	      (LF) combination.

       NET    Each line	in the mail ends in a carriage return (CR,  line  feed
	      (LF)  combination. Lines beginning with a	dot (.), have this dot
	      doubled. A line consisting of a single dot and a carriage	return
	      (CR),  line  feed	 (LF) combination denotes the end of the mail.
	      pdeliver will stop reading at this point.

	      Irrespective of the format an EOF	will always end	the mail.

       -l FILE,	--logfile FILE
	      Logfile used for all messages. Default is	 /var/log/popular/pde-
	      liver.   if  you	don't  want  any  logging, you have to use '-l
	      /dev/null'.

       -i ID, --id ID
	      This ID is logged	with every line	in the log file	to find	corre-
	      sponding entries.	If you don't specify an	ID "-" will be logged.
	      You probabely want to put	the internal ID	of  the	 MTA  here  to
	      easily find corresponding	entries	in the MTA log file.

QUOTA
       The  quota  will	be checked before delivering the mail. The size	of the
       mail currently being delivered is not counted towards the mailbox size.
       If  the	mailbox	size is	smaller	then the quota and the number of mails
       smaller then the	maximal	allowed	number of mails, the  mail  is	deliv-
       ered, otherwise pdeliver	exits with return code 1.

       Because	there  is  no  locking done, two processes delivering into the
       same mailbox at the same	time might lead	to overfull mailboxes.

RETURN CODES
       0      Mail was successfully delivered.

       1      Quota for	this mailbox exceeded. Mail is not delivered.

       2      Error while delivering. Permission problems  or  something  like
	      that.

       3      Command line error.
