NAME
       deliver - deliver mail to an IMAP mailbox

SYNOPSIS
       deliver [ -C config-file ] [ -d ] [ -r address ]
               [ -f address ] [ -m mailbox ] [ -a auth-id ]
               [ -q ] [ userid ]...
       deliver [ -C config-file ] -l

DESCRIPTION
       Deliver reads a message from the standard input and delivers it to one
       or more IMAP mailboxes.

       Deliver reads its configuration options out of the imapd.conf(5) file
       unless specified otherwise by -C.

OPTIONS
       -C config-file
              Read configuration options from config-file.

       -d     Ignored for compatability with /bin/mail.

       -r address
              Insert a Return-Path: header containing address

       -f address
              Insert a Return-Path: header containing address

       -m mailbox
              Deliver to mailbox.  If any userids are specified, attempts to
              deliver to user.userid.mailbox for each userid.  If the ACL on
              any such mailbox does not grant the sender the "p" right or if
              -m is not specified, then delivers to the INBOX for the userid,
              regardless of the ACL on the INBOX.

              If no userids are specified, attempts to deliver to mailbox.  If
              the ACL on mailbox does not grant the sender the "p" right, the
              delivery fails.

       -a auth-id
              Specify the authorization id of the sender.  Defaults to
              "anonymous".

       -q     Deliver message even when receiving mailbox is over quota.

       -l     Accept messages using the LMTP protocol.

NOTES
       Depending on the setting of reject8bit in imapd.conf(5), deliver either
       rejects/accepts messages with 8-bit-set characters in the headers.  If
       we accept messages with 8-bit-set characters in the headers, then
       depending on the setting of munge8bit, these characters are either left
       un-touched or changed to `X'.  This is because such characters can't be
       interpreted since the character set is not known, although some
       communities not well-served by US-ASCII assume that those characters
       can be used to represent characters not present in US-ASCII.

       A method for encoding 8-bit-set characters is provided by RFC 2047.
