Example text

When sendmail transports mail on a TCP/IP network, it first sends the envelope-sender's address to the other site. If the other site accepts the sender's address as legal, the local sendmail then sends the list of envelope-recipient addresses. The other site accepts or rejects each recipient address one by one. If any recipient addresses are accepted, the local sendmail sends the message (header and body together). This kind of transaction for sending email is called SMTP and is defined in RFC2821.

It can do this in two ways: by running as a program named mailq or by being run as sendmail with the -bp command-line switch. Whichever way you run it, the contents of the queue are printed. gov> Here, the output produced with the -bp switch shows that only one mail message is in the queue. If there were more, each entry would look pretty much the same as this. Each message results in at least two lines of output. The first line shows details about the message and the sender. The d8BJXvF13031 identifies this message in the queue directory /var/spool/mqueue.

Only one recipient is listed in the envelope, whereas two were listed in the message header: To: friend1, friend2@remote The remote machine should not need to know about the local user, friend1, so that bit of recipient information is excluded from the envelope. A given mail message can be sent by using many different envelopes (like the two here), but the header will be common to them all. But note that the headers of a message don't necessarily reflect the actual envelope. You witness such mismatches whenever you receive a message from a mailing list, or receive a spam message.
