SENDMAIL(8) System Manager's Manual SENDMAIL(8)
sendmail - a mail enqueuer for smtpd(8)
sendmail [-tv] [-F name] [-f from] to ...
The sendmail utility is a local enqueuer for the smtpd(8) daemon,
compatible with mailwrapper(8). The message is read on standard input
(stdin) until 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 agent.
Unless the optional -t flag is specified, one or more recipients must be
specified on the command line.
The options are as follows:
Set the sender's full name.
Set the sender's address.
-t Read the message's To:, Cc:, and Bcc: fields for recipients. The
Bcc: field will be deleted before sending.
-v Enable verbose output.
To maintain compatibility with Sendmail, Inc.'s implementation of
sendmail, various other flags are accepted, but have no effect.
The sendmail utility exits 0 on success, and >0 if an error occurs.
