NAME

rcvdist - asynchronously redistribute new mail

SYNOPSIS

rcvdist [-form formfile] [switches for spost] RECIPIENT... [-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 mmh 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        stringthe addresses to distribute to
rcvdist uses the program spost to do the actual delivery of the message.
