a mail enqueuer for

for the smtpd(8) daemon, compatible with

sendmail encounters an end-of-file. The
sendmail enqueuer is not intended to be used
directly to send mail, but rather via a frontend known as a mail user
Unless the optional
-t flag is specified,
one or more recipients must be specified on the command line.
The options are as follows:
