       mailstats - print statistics collected by sendmail

       mailstats [-o] [-c ] [-C configfile] [-f statisticsfile]
	    [-p] [-P]

       The  mailstats  utility prints out the statistics collected by the sendmail(1M) program on
       mailer usage. These statistics are collected if the file indicated by the StatusFile  con-
       figuration  option of sendmail (defined in /etc/mail/sendmail.cf) exists. The default sta-
       tistics file is /etc/mail/statistics.

       To enable mailstats, you must, as root, touch  /etc/mail/statistics.  See  the  StatusFile
       processing option in sendmail(1M).

       mailstats  first prints the time that the statistics file was created and the last time it
       was modified. Then, the statistics for each mailer are displayed on a  single  line,  each
       with the following whitespace-separated fields:

       M	     The mailer number.

       msgsfr	     Number of messages from the mailer.

       bytes_from    Kbytes from the mailer.

       msgsto	     Number of messages to the mailer.

       bytes_to      Kbytes to the mailer.

       msgsrej	     Number of messages rejected by the mailer.

       msgsdis	     Number of messages discarded by the mailer.

       msgsqur	     Number of messages quarantined by the mailer.

       Mailer	     The name of the mailer.

       The display of statistics described above is followed by a separation line containing only
       equal sign (=) characters. After the separation line, a	line  preceded	with  a  "T"  and
       totaling  the values for all of the mailers is displayed. This is followed by another line
       preceded with a "C" that lists the number of TCP connections.

       To reinitialize the statistics file once a night, add an entry to root's crontab(1):

	 mailstats -p > /dev/null

       The following options are supported:

       -c		    Try to use submit.cf instead of the  default  sendmail  configuration

       -C configfile	    Specify a sendmail configuration file.

       -f statisticsfile    Specify a sendmail statistics file.

       -o		    Do not display the name of the mailer in the output.

       -p		    Output information in program-readable mode and clear statistics.

       -P		    Output  information in program-readable mode without clearing statis-

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

       /dev/null		Zero-lined file

       /etc/mail/statistics	Default sendmail statistics file

       /etc/mail/sendmail.cf	Default sendmail configuration file

       See attributes(5) for descriptions of the following attributes:

       |      ATTRIBUTE TYPE	     |	    ATTRIBUTE VALUE	   |
       |Availability		     |SUNWsndmu 		   |
       |Output Stability	     |Unstable			   |
