NAME
     motd — file containing message(s) of the day

DESCRIPTION
     The file /etc/motd is normally displayed by login(1) after a user has
     logged in but before the shell is run.  It is generally used for impor‐
     tant system-wide announcements.  During system startup, a line containing
     the kernel version string is prepended to this file.

     Individual users may suppress the display of this file by creating a file
     named “.hushlogin” in their home directories or through login.conf(5).

FILES
     /etc/motd	       The message of the day.
