check for MMDF mail that has been submitted but not delivered
checkmail [ -a ] [ -f ] [ -m ]
checkmail checks the MMDF mail queue on the local machine for
messages that have been sent by the invoker.
If invoked without any arguments, the ``Subject:'' of each message found
is given along with a list of addressees who have not yet received
the message. Usually, messages are still in the queue because the
addressee's host machine is down.
The -a (all addresses) option causes all addresses to
be shown (both delivered and undelivered). Some delivered addresses
may not appear since some sites remove already-delivered addresses
from the address list files for efficiency.
The -f (fast) option suppresses the printing of
the ``Subject'' line.
The -m (all messages) option causes checkmail to check all
messages in the mail queue, not just those of the invoker. This is only
useful for mail system maintainers who wish to find problem hosts.
The -m option can be used only by users root or
MMDF is not part of any currently supported standard; it was developed at
the University of Delaware and is used with permission.
