Maildir splitting relies upon filenames being sorted to output patches in the correct order .


<mbox> Mbox file to split . If not given, the mbox is read from the standard input .

<Maildir> Root of the Maildir to split . This directory should contain the cur, tmp and new subdirectories .

-o<directory> Directory in which to place the individual messages .

-b If any file doesn begin with a From line, assume it is a single mail message instead of signaling error .

-d<prec> Instead of the default 4 digits with leading zeros, different precision can be specified for the generated filenames .

-f<nn> Skip the first <nn> numbers, for example if -f3 is specified, start the numbering with 0004 .

--keep -cr Do not remove \ r from lines ending with \ r \ n .

--mboxrd Input is of the "mboxrd" format and "^>+From " line escaping is reversed .
