NAME

mexport — export messages as mbox file

SYNOPSIS

mexport [-S] msgs ...

DESCRIPTION

mexport writes the specified msgs to the standard output as an MBOXRD file. (See mmsg(7) for the message argument syntax.) If no msgs are specified, mexport reads filenames from the standard input, or uses the mes‐ sages in the current sequence if used interactively. mexport uses the ‘Return-Path:’ (or ‘X-Envelope-To:’) and ‘Date:’ headers from each message for the mbox ‘From ’ line. The options are as follows: -S Add ‘Status:’ and ‘X-Status:’ headers according to the msgs maildir flags.

EXIT STATUS

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