PRINTMAIL(1L)							 PRINTMAIL(1L)

NAME
       printmail - format mail in a readable fashion for printing

SYNOPSIS
       printmail {-p} {filename}

DESCRIPTION
       Printmail copies	all messages from either the file specified or the de-
       fault user mailbox with each message separated by  a  line  of  dashes.
       With the	-p option, the messages	are separated by a form	feed instead.

       In fact,	this command is	actually just a	slightly differently formatted
       call to readmsg:
	    readmsg {-p} {-f filename} *
       which does all the work here.

EXAMPLE
       A typical usage of this command is;

	    printmail |	lpr
