NAME

push - fetch mail via POP  

SYNOPSIS

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

DESCRIPTION

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, 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

$ push --from -5 havregryn

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