NAME

mailer - script to warn users about their weak passwords  

SYNOPSIS

mailer password-files  

DESCRIPTION

This manual page documents briefly the mailer command, which is part of the john package. This manual page was written for the Debian GNU/Linux distribution because the original program does not have a manual page. john, better known as John the Ripper, is a tool to find weak passwords of users in a server.
The mailer tool is useful to inform users which have been found to be using weak passwords by mail.

You should edit the message mailer will send to the users, but remember to copy the script to a safe place before editing it, as it's generally a bad idea to modify things living in /usr.  

SEE ALSO

john(8), unafs(8), unique(8), unshadow(8).

The programs are documented fully by John's documentation, which should be available in /usr/share/doc/john or other location, depending on your system.
