NAME
       incm - Incorporating new mails for Mew

SYNOPSIS
       incm [options]

DESCRIPTION
       The incm utility incoporates new mails from the mbox or the maildir to Mew's inbox folder.

       The options are as follows:

       -a      Retrieve all mails from maildir/{cur,new} for maildir.

       -b      Backup mails.  mbox: No truncate mbox file.  maildir: To maildir/cur directory.

       -c      Use  the  Content-Length:  field, instead of the "From " line, as a mail separator
	       for mbox.

       -d path Path to mbox/maildir.  If path is a file, mbox is assumed. If path is a directory,
	       maildir is assumed.

       -m path The same as the -d option.

       -s      Read one mail from stdin instead of mbox/maildir.

       -i inboxdir
	       A path to the inbox directory.

       -h      Display this help message.

       -v      Display the version.

   mbox
       For  mbox, the mail separator is "From " in the beginning of lines.  The incm utility does
       not convert ">From " to "From " in the beginning of lines in the body.  On  Solaris,  Con-
       tent-Length: should be used with the -c option to tell the end of mail.

       To  lock mbox, both a lock file("user.lock") and flock() (or lockf(), or open(LOCK_EX) are
       used.

   maildir
       For maildir, no lock and no separator are necessary.

       Consider the following situation:
	       cur/{1,2}
	       new/{3,4}

       Executing incm without the options results in:
	       cur/{1,2}
	       new/{}
	       to inbox: {3,4}

       Executing incm with the -a option results in:
	       cur/{}
	       new/{}
	       to inbox: {1,2,3,4}

       Executing incm with the -b option results in:
	       cur/{1,2,3,4}
	       new/{}
	       to inbox: {3,4}

       Executing incm with the -a option and the -b otpion results in:
	       cur/{1,2,3,4}
	       new/{}
	       to inbox: {1,2,3,4}
       So, if both options are specified, messages are retrieved multiple times.
