NAME

printmail - format mail in a readable fashion for printing

SYNOPSIS

printmail {-p} {filename}

DESCRIPTION

Printmail copies all messages from either the file specified or the default user mailbox with each message separated by a line of dashes. With the −p option, the messages are separated by a form feed instead.

In fact, this command is actually just a slightly differently formatted call to readmsg:

readmsg {-p} {-f filename} *

which does all the work here.

EXAMPLE

A typical usage of this command is;

printmail | lpr
