push man page
push — fetch mail via POP
|push|| [-5 | --krb5] [-v | --verbose] [-f | --fork] [-l | --leave] [--from] [-c | --count] [--headers= |
push retrieves mail from the post office box
po-box, and stores the mail in mbox format in
po-box can have any of the following formats:
If no username is specified, push assumes that it's the same as on the local machine;
hostname defaults to the value of the MAILHOST environment variable.
- -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
- behave like from.
- -c, --count
- first print how many messages and bytes there are.
- a list of comma-separated headers that should get printed.
- use this port instead of the default ‘
kpop’ or ‘
The default is to first try Kerberos 5 authentication and then, if that fails, Kerberos 4.
- points to the post office, if no other hostname is specified.
