NAME
       motd - message of the day

DESCRIPTION
       The  contents  of  /etc/motd  are  displayed by login(1) after a successful login but just
       before it executes the login shell.

       The abbreviation "motd" stands for "message of the day", and this file has been tradition-
       ally used for exactly that (it requires much less disk space than mail to all users).

FILES
       /etc/motd

SEE ALSO
       login(1), issue(5)
