incm - Incorporating new mails for Mew


incm [options]


The incm utility incorporates new mails from the mbox or the maildir to Mew's inbox

The options are as follows:

-a Retrieve all mails from maildir/{cur,new} for maildir.

-b Backup mails. mbox: No truncate mbox file. maildir: To maildir/cur directory.

-c Use the Content-Length: field, instead of the "From " line, as a mail separator
for mbox.

-d path Path to mbox/maildir. If path is a file, mbox is assumed. If path is a directory,
maildir is assumed.

-m path The same as the -d option.

-s Read one mail from stdin instead of mbox/maildir.

-i inboxdir
A path to the inbox directory.

-u Don't touch ".mew-mtime".

-f Preserve Unix From (Envelope Sender) line in mbox case.

-p mode Specify file mode that creates in mbox case.

-o Use the suffix when creating messages.

-x suffix
Use this suffix.

-h Display this help message.

-v Display the version.

For mbox, the mail separator is "From " in the beginning of lines. The incm utility does
not convert ">From " to "From " in the beginning of lines in the body. On Solaris,
Content-Length: should be used with the -c option to tell the end of mail.

To lock mbox, a lock file("<user>.lock"), flock() or lockf(), and open(O_EXLOCK) are used.

For maildir, no lock and no separator are necessary.

Consider the following situation:

Executing incm without the options results in:
to inbox: {3,4}

Executing incm with the -a option results in:
to inbox: {1,2,3,4}

Executing incm with the -b option results in:
to inbox: {3,4}

Executing incm with the -a option and the -b option results in:
to inbox: {1,2,3,4}
So, if both options are specified, messages are retrieved multiple times.
