mdeliver
deliver messages or import mbox file

mdeliver [

-X flags
] dir < message

mdeliver -M [
-c
] [
-v
] [
-X flags
] dir < mbox

mdeliver adds a message given on the standard input as a new message in the maildir dir.
When -M is used, mdeliver will regard the standard input as an MBOXRD mailbox, split it on “From ” and deliver each message, decoding it according to the MBOXRD convention. mdeliver will set the mtime according to the value of ‘Date:’ and the maildir flags according to the value of ‘Status:’ or ‘X-Status:’.
The messages are delivered in a reliable way and use the default umask(2).
Please note that no syntactical checks are performed on the messages.
The options are as follows:
 
 
Deliver each message of an mbox.
 
 
Deliver messages into cur/, not new/ (the default).
 
 
Print each new message filename after delivery.
 
 
flg
Override the flags of the new message file to be flg.

The mdeliver utility exits 0 on success, and >0 if an error occurs.
