       send - mail routing and delivery

       upas/send [ -b ] [ -i ] [ -r ] [ -x ] [ -# ] [ mailaddr ...  ]

       Send  is not normally run directly by the user.	Instead, mail protocol
       agents like smtpd (see smtp(8)) and mail preparers like marshal(1) fork
       and execute send.

       Send  reads  a message from standard input and disposes of it in one of
       four ways:

       ·  If mailaddr refers to a local mailbox, it appends it to the  recipi‐
	  ent's mailbox.

       ·  If mailaddr is remote, it queues the mail for remote delivery.

       ·  If  the -r option is given and the mail is undeliverable, it returns
	  the mail to the sender.

       ·  if the -r option is not given and  the  mail	is  undeliverable,  it
	  appends the mail to /mail/box/username/dead.letter and prints a mes‐
	  sage to standard error.

       The file /mail/lib/rewrite determines exactly how to deliver  or	 queue
       the mail.  The decision is based purely on the recipient address.

       The options are:

       -b     suppresses the addition of the To: line.

       -i     let  the message input be terminated by a line containing only a
	      period, for compatibility with old mailers.

       -x     do not send mail, but instead report the full  mail  address  of
	      the recipient.

       -#     do  not send mail, but instead report what command would be used
	      to send the mail.

       -r     input is via a pipe from another program.	 Expect a From line at
	      the  start  of the message to provide the name of the sender and
	      timestamp.  This implies the -b option.

       Send uses the login name as the reply address.
