NAME
       showexternal - Fetch and display the body of a mail message that is included by reference

SYNOPSIS
       showexternal  body-file access-type name [site [directory [mode [server]]]]

DESCRIPTION
       The  showexternal  program  will attempt to obtain the real body of a mail message that is
       included only by reference, using the MIME type "message/external-body".  It  is  intended
       to be called by metamail via a mailcap entry like the following:

       message/external-body; showexternal %s %{access-type} %{name} %{site} %{directory} %{mode}
       %{server} ; needsterminal

       If it succeeds in fetching the message body, showexternal will then call metamail to actu-
       ally display it.

SEE ALSO
       metamail(1)

ENVIRONMENT
       The FTP environment variable can override "ftp" as the name of the ftp program.

BUGS
       Not the greatest error handling in the world.
