popcv - Migrate passwords from the /var/spool/pop/POP file to the mailauth database SYNOPSIS
/usr/bin/popcv [location] DESCRIPTION
The popcv utility gives system administrators the ability to migrate passwords from the /var/spool/pop/POP file to the mailauth database. Once the passwords are in the mailauth database, use the mailauth utility to administer the database. Use the location parameter to provide the full PATH for the POP file. If the location parameter is not specified, a check is made in the /etc/passwd file for a pop entry. If an entry exists and if a POP file is found in the $HOME directory for the pop user, then that file is used. If no file is found, the default location of /var/spool/pop is checked. When the POP file is found, the passwords are migrated to the mailauth database as POP passwords. If the mailauth database has not been initialized or converted from previous versions, the system administrator is prompted to use the mailauth utility. SEE ALSO
