OpenSolaris 2009.06 - man page for mailcompat (opensolaris section 1)

NAME
       mailcompat - provide SunOS compatibility for Solaris mailbox format

DESCRIPTION
       mailcompat is a program to provide SunOS 4.x compatability for the Solaris mailbox format.
       You would typically run	mailcompat to be able to read mail on a workstation running SunOS
       4.x when your mail server is running Solaris.

       Enabling  mailcompat  creates an entry in your  .forward file, if it exists.  If this file
       does not exist, mailcompat will create it.  Disabling mailcompat  will  remove  the  entry
       from the .forward file, and if this was the only entry, will remove the entire file.

       To  execute  mailcompat, log onto the Solaris mail server and enter mailcompat on the com-
       mand line. Answer the queries provided by the program.

USAGE
       See largefile(5) for the description of the behavior of mailcompat when encountering files
       greater than or equal to 2 Gbyte ( 2^31 bytes).
