MORE INFORMATION

Program: REMOTE GET

Syntax: RMTGET -imailbox:password output-file [-ddrive] [-f0|1|2]

[-h] [-k] [-ms] [-nvalue] [-pvalue] [-r]
[-wydirectory|-wndirectory log-filename]
[-yyy|-yyn|-yny|ynn]
[-zeyy|-zeny|-zeyn|-zdmsgid|-zrmsgid]][-ver]


Options:

-imailbox:password

Use the -i option to specify the user mailbox and password for the application. This identification is assigned by the administrator.
Example: -ijjones:star


output-filename

Use this to specify the file that will contain the message exported from Mail. It can be no longer than a maximum of 8 characters with a 3 character extension.
Example: data.out <or> c:\mail\data.out


-ddrive

Use the -d option to specify the drive that contains the Remote Mail data files. If you do not specify a drive, FFAPI searches for the files on drive M.
Example: -df


-f0|1|2

Use the -f option to specify the new-line sequence to be used in the MMFF output file. Each line in the MMFF is separated by this sequence.

0 = carriage return
1 = line feed
2 = carriage return, line feed

If you do not specify the new-line sequence, carriage return is used.
Example: -f2


-h

Use the -h option to generate messages in the extended mail format. The default is to create the MMFF file using the basic header format.
Example: -h


-k

Use the -k option to keep messages in the postoffice mailbag, including MMFF output files and all message data files. The default is to delete the message from the mailbag once extracted.
Example: -k


-ms

Use the -ms option to generate a log of messages sent in the file \LOG\SENT.LOG located on the drive specified for the Mail data files (-d option). If the file already exists, the new messages are appended to it.
Example: -ms


-nvalue

Use the -n option to specify the number of messages to get from the Mail data file and place in the MMFF output file. The number must be greater than zero and not more than 50. If you do not specify a number, up to 50 messages are retrieved.
Example: -n20


-pvalue

Use the -p option to extract messages assigned a priority equal to or higher than the one you specify. The order of priority is determined by the ASCII character set. Priorities 1 to 5 and R, C, F, and T are reserved for Mail. If you do not specify a priority, all messages are extracted.

Values: 1 - 9 or any letter.
Example: -p3


-r

Use the -r option to get messages from the Remote Mail Outbox. If you do not specify this option, messages are put in the Inbox.
Example: -r


-wydirectory|-wndirectory

Use the -w option to automatically save files sent to the user by file transfer, to indicate what to do with duplicate file names, and to specify the directory to contain the files. Choose -wy to overwrite an existing file if the file received has the same name. Choose -wn to automatically change the name of the file received if the existing file has the same name. Save all files received in the directory you specify.
Example: -wnc:\inbox


log-filename

Use this option to specify the path and the name of the file to contain the audit of files received.
Example: c:\mail\receive.log


-yyy|-yyn|-yny|-ynn Use a -y option to create external files for the message body, attachments, or both.

  • Specify -yyy to generate external files for both the attachments and the body of a message. Yy means generate the files for the message body; the last y means generate files for the message attachments.
  • Specify -yyn to generate external files for the message body. Yy means generate the files for the message body; n means do not generate files for the message attachment.
  • Specify -yny to generate external files for the message attachments. Yn means do not generate files for the message body; the second y means generate files for the message attachments.

If you specify -ynn, the messages along with any associated attachment files are put in the MMFF output file. If you do not specify this option, RmtGet uses -ynn . -zeyy|-zeny|-zeyn|-zdmsgid|-zrmsgid Use a -z option to manipulate individual message headings in the mailbag. You can read message headings, and get or delete a message.

  • To enumerate the headings of the messages in the mailbag, specify -zeyy. The first y means extract headings of unread messages; the second y means extract headings of messages that have been read.
  • To extract only headings of messages that have been read, specify -zeny. The n means do not extract the headings of unread messages; y means extract headings of messages that have been read.
  • To extract only headings of unread messages, specify -zeyn. Y means extract the headings of unread messages; n means do not extract headings of messages that have been read.
  • To get a message and place it in the output file, specify -zrmsgid, where the message identification is the mail identifier.
  • To delete a message in the mailbag, specify -zdmsgid, where the message identification is the mail identifier.

Example: -zd0000008a -ver

Use the -ver option to display the version of this FFAPI program. The version number will appear on the screen unless you direct it to another location.
Example: -ver


Program: REMOTE PUT

Syntax: RMTPUT -imailbox:password input-file [-bffilename]

[-ddrive] [-f0|1|2] [-k] [-mr] [-r] [-wuser-address
[,user-address] physical-filename [ physical-filename]
|-wuser-address [,user-address] physical-filename,
logical-filename [ physical-filename,logical-filename]]][-ver]


Options:

-imailbox:password

See entry under REMOTE GET


input filename

Use this to specify the file that contains the messages to put into the Remote Mail Outbox.
Example: c:\mail\data.in


-bffilename

Use the -bf option to log all error messages in a file you specify. If you omit this option, the errors are directed to standard output.
Example: -bfc:\errors\err.log


-ddrive

See entry under REMOTE GET


-f0|1|2

See entry under REMOTE GET


-k

Use the -k option to keep the MMFF file and all data files that make up the message.
Example: -k


-mr

Use the -mr option to generate a log of messages received in the file: \log\recv.log. If the file already exists, the new messages are appended to it.
Example: -mr


-r

Use the -r option to put the messages into the Remote Mail Inbox. If you omit this option the messages are put in the Outbox.
Example: -r


-wuser-address [,user-address] physical-filename [ physical-filename]
|-wuser-address [,user-address] physical-filename,logical-filename
[physical-filename,logical-filename]

Use the -w option to specify what files are to be sent to whom. Use this option to specify the user address, and the file to be sent. Specify the name of a file by its physical filename followed by a comma (,) and its logical filename, or simply the physical filename.

If you are specifying more than one file, you can specify one file by its physical filename, and the next file by its physical and logical filenames. You can send more than one file to a user; each filename must be preceded by a space.
Example: -wny4/po1/jbrown c:\doc\list1.txt c:\doc\list2.txt

You can also send files to more than one user. Each address must be separated from the next by a comma. No more than ten spaces can precede or follow the comma.
Example: -wny4/po1/jbrown c:\doc\list1.txt,lanet/sales/margb a:list2.txt

You can also repeat the -w option for each additional user. Example:

-wny4/po1/jbrown c:\doc\list1.txt -wlanet/sales/margb a:list2.txt


-ver
