When invoked with improper options, deliver emits the following:

Usage: deliver [-c <config file>] [-a <address>] [-d <username>] [-p <path>]
               [-f <envelope sender>] [-m <mailbox>] [-n] [-s] [-e] [-k]

  • -a address:
  • -c config_file:
  • -d username: (required)
  • -e:
  • -f envelope_sender_address:
  • -k:
  • -m mailbox:
