innmail - Simple mail-sending program


   innmail [-h] [-s subject] address [address ...]


   innmail is a Perl script intended to provide the non-interactive mail-
   sending functionality of mail(1) while avoiding nasty security
   problems.  It takes the body of a mail message on standard input and
   sends it to the specified addresses by invoking the value of mta in

   At least one address (formatted for the MTA specified in inn.conf, if
   it matters) is required.  innmail will sanitize the addresses so that
   they contain only alphanumerics and the symbols "@", ".", "-", "+",
   "_", and "%".

   innmail was written to be suitable for the mailcmd setting in inn.conf.


   -h  Gives usage information.

   -s subject
       Sets the Subject: header of the message.  A warning is issued if
       this option is omitted.


   This sends a one-line message to the local user "joe":

       echo "A one-line message." | innmail -s "Simple message" joe

   innmail by default is used by INN for sending nightly reports and
   control message reports.


   innmail fails on addresses that begin with "-", although one might hope
   that the news server will not need to contact any such addresses.

   There are many "correct" addresses that will be silently modified by
   the sanitization process.  A news administrator should be careful to
   use particularly sane addresses if they may be passed to innmail.


   innmail was written by James Brister <> for
   InterNetNews.  This manual page was originally written by Jeffrey M.
