HISTORY

This is a new and simpler version of sendfiles , which directly invokes send . The old one had invoked viamail . The old version had been able to send whole directories, by automatically tarballing them. This new version is not able to do so. The old man page had described some kind of automatical splitting of large content into ‘message/partial’ parts. However, it appears as if this had been removed earlier, only its documentation remained.
