mdeliver
deliver messages or import mbox file

mdeliver [-c] [-v] [-X flags] dir < message

mdeliver -M [-c] [-v] [-X flags] dir < mbox

mdeliver adds a message given on the standard input as a new message in the maildir dir.

When -M is used, mdeliver will regard the standard input as an MBOXRD mailbox, split it on “From ” and deliver each message, decoding it according to the MBOXRD convention. mdeliver will set the mtime according to the value of ‘Date:’ and the maildir flags according to the value of ‘Status:’ or ‘X-Status:’.

The messages are delivered in a reliable way and use the default umask(2).

Please note that no syntactical checks are performed on the messages.

The options are as follows:

Deliver each message of an mbox.
Deliver messages into cur/, not new/ (the default).
Print each new message filename after delivery.
flg
Override the flags of the new message file to be flg.

The mdeliver utility exits 0 on success, and >0 if an error occurs.
