.TH INNMAIL 1
.SH NAME
innmail \- simple mail-sending program
.SH SYNOPSIS
.B innmail
[-h]
[-s \fIsubject\fR]
\fIADDRESS\fR[...]
.SH DESCRIPTION
.B innmail
is a
.B perl
script intended to provide the non-interactive mail-sending
functionality of
.IR mail (1)
while avoiding nasty security problems.
.SH OPTIONS
.PP
At least one address (formatted for the \fImta\fR specified in
\fIinn.conf\fR) is required.  \fIinnmail\fR will sanitize the
addresses (so thy contain only alphanumerics and the symbols `@',
`.', `\-', `+', `_', and `%'), although not guarantee their
adherence to standard.
.PP
The body of the message is read from standard input.
.TP
.BI \-h
give usage help
.TP
.BI \-s " subject"
set the `Subject' header of the message (a warning is issued if this
is ommitted)
.SH BUGS
\fIinnmail\fR fails on addresses that begin with `\-', however one
might hope the news server will not need to contact any such
addresses.  In addition, there exist many `correct' addresses that
will be silently modified by the sanitization process.  A news
administrator should be careful to use particularly sane addresses
if they may be passed to \fIinnmail\fR.
