getmail_mbox − read a message from stdin and deliver to a named mboxrd-format mbox file with fcntl-style locking.
getmail_mbox [OPTION] PATH
Deliver a mail message from standard input, to the mboxrd-format mbox file named PATH. PATH must start with a dot or a slash and must not end with a slash. fcntl-type locking is used; if your system requires another type of locking (such as flock or dotlock ), use an MDA configured for that style of locking instead.
uses the SENDER environment variable to construct a
Return-Path: header field and the contents of the
RECIPIENT environment variable to construct a
Delivered-To: header field at the top of the message.
SENDER is also used in creating the mbox From_ line.
print a status message on success
getmail_mbox exits zero on success, and nonzero on any error. The specific values of the exit code are not documented and may change from version to version.
