RCVDIST(1)                                                           [nmh-1.5]                                                          RCVDIST(1)

NAME
rcvdist - asynchronously redistribute new mail SYNOPSIS
/usr/lib/mh/rcvdist [-form formfile] [switches for postproc] address1 ... [-version] [-help] DESCRIPTION
The rcvdist program will accept a message on its standard input and resend a copy of this message to all of the addresses listed on its command line. When a message is redistributed with the rcvdist command, the format of the Resent-xxx header fields is controlled by the forms files "rcvdistcomps". If a file named "rcvdistcomps" exists in the user's nmh directory, it will be used instead of the default one. You may specify an alternate forms file with the switch -form formfile. The "rcvdistcomps" file uses the format string facility described in mh-format(5). In addition to the standard format escapes, rcvdist also recognizes the following additional component escape: Escape Returns Description addresses string the addresses to distribute to By default, rcvdist uses the program post to do the actual delivery of the message, although this can be changed by defining the postproc profile component.

NAME
rcvtty - report new mail SYNOPSIS
/usr/lib/mh/rcvtty [command] [-form formatfile] [-format string] [-width columns] [-bell | -nobell] [-newline | -nonewline] [-biff] [-ver- sion] [-help] DESCRIPTION
The rcvtty can be used to report new mail. It is used primarily in conjunction with mail filtering agents such as slocal or procmail. The rcvtty program executes the named command with the message as its standard input, and writes the resulting output on your terminal. Alternately, if no command is specified (or is bogus), then rcvtty will instead write a one-line scan listing. The default output format of this scan listing may be overridden by using either the -form formatfile or -format string option, similar to the equivalent options for scan and inc. See mh-format(5) for details. A newline is output before the message output, and the terminal bell is rung after the output. The -nonewline and -nobell options will inhibit these functions. The switch -width columns may be given to specify the width of the scan line. The default is to use the width of the terminal. In addition to the standard format escapes described in mh-format(5), rcvtty also recognizes the following additional component escapes: Escape Returns Description body string the (compressed) first part of the body dtimenow date the current date folder string the name of the current folder By default, rcvtty will send its output to every terminal on the local machine that is owned by current user, and that has given write per- mission as granted by the command mesg(1). If the option -biff is given, then rcvtty will obey the notification status set by the command biff(1) instead. FILES
