SYNOPSIS

push [-5-| -krb5 ] [-v-| -verbose ] [-f-| -fork ] [-l-| --leave ] [-from] [-c-| --count ] [-headers-=headers] [-p port-spec | Xo -port-= port-spec ] po-box filename

DESCRIPTION

push retrieves mail from the post office box po-box, and stores the mail in mbox format in filename. The po-box can have any of the following formats:
hostname:username
po:hostname:username
username@hostname
po:username@hostname
hostname
po:username
 

If no username is specified, push assumes that it’s the same as on the local machine; hostname defaults to the value of the MAILHOST environment variable.

Supported options:
-5 , -krb5
  use Kerberos 5 (if compiled with support for Kerberos 5)
-f , -fork
  fork before starting to delete messages
-l , -leave
  don’t delete fetched mail
-from
  behave like from.
-c , -count
  first print how many messages and bytes there are.
-headers-= headers
  a list of comma-separated headers that should get printed.
-p port-spec, -port-= port-spec
  use this port instead of the default kpop’ or 1109’.

The default is to first try Kerberos 5 authentication and then, if that fails, Kerberos 4.

ENVIRONMENT

MAILHOST
  points to the post office, if no other hostname is specified.

EXAMPLES

$ push cornfield:roosta ~/.emacs-mail-crash-box

tries to fetch mail for the user roosta from the post office at "cornfield", and stores the mail in ~/.emacs-mail-crash-box (you are using Gnus, aren’t you?)

$ push --from -5 havregryn

tries to fetch From: lines for current user at post office "havregryn" using Kerberos 5.

SEE ALSO

from(1), pfrom(1), movemail(8), popper(8)

HISTORY

push was written while waiting for movemail to finish getting the mail.
