SYNOPSIS

mini_sendmail [-f<name>] [-t] [-s<server>] [-p<port>] [-T<timeout>] [-v] address ...

DESCRIPTION

With no flags, mini_sendmail reads its standard input up to an end-of-file and sends a copy of the message found there to all of the addresses listed.

The message is sent by connecting to a local SMTP server. This means mini_sendmail can be used to send email from inside a chroot(2) area.
-f Sets the name of the "from" person (i.e. the sender of the mail).
-t Read message for recipients. To:, Cc:, and Bcc: lines will be scanned for recipient addresses. The Bcc: line will be deleted before transmission.
-s Specifies the SMTP server to use. Without this it uses localhost.
-p Specifies the port to use. Without this it uses 25, the standard SMTP port.
-T Specifies timeout - defaults to one minute.
-v Verbose mode - shows the conversation with the SMTP server.
