NAME

mlock -- lock a mailbox  

SYNOPSIS

/usr/bin/mlock  

DESCRIPTION

If libc-client.so is unable to create a mailbox lock file, it will call this program. This makes using the mailbox safe over i.e. NFS. There is no reason to call mlock yourself or through another program. It is setgid mail so there is no need to change the permissions of /var/mail to 1777.  

BUGS

No documentation other than this crappy man page,
