       kuvert_submit - MTA wrapper for mail submission to kuvert(1)


       kuvert_submit [sendmail-options] [recipients...]


       Kuvert_submit submits an email either directly to sendmail(8) or
       enqueues it for kuvert(1) for further processing.  kuvert_submit should
       be called by your MUA instead of your usual MTA to enable kuvert to
       intercept and process the outgoing mails. Please see your MUA’s
       documentation about how to override the MTA to be used.

       Kuvert_submit transparently invokes "/usr/sbin/sendmail" directly if it
       cannot find a ~/.kuvert configuration file, or if the -bv option is
       given. Otherwise, it enqueues the email in the queue directory
       specified in the configuration file.  If that fails or if the
       configuration file is invalid, kuvert_submit prints an error message to
       STDERR and terminates with exit code 1.  On successful submission,
       kuvert_submit terminates with exit code 0.

       Kuvert_submit also logs messages to syslog with the facility "mail".


       If it runs the MTA directly then kuvert_submit passes all options
       through to /usr/sbin/sendmail. Otherwise, it ignores all options except
       -f and -t (and -bv which triggers a direct sendmail pass-through).

       -f <emailaddress>
           Sets the envelope sender. Kuvert_submit passes this on to kuvert.

       -t  Tells an MTA to use the recipients in the mail instead of any
           commandline arguments. If -t is not given then kuvert_submit passes
           the recipients from the commandline on to kuvert.


           The configuration file read by kuvert and kuvert_submit. If not
           present, kuvert_submit calls /usr/sbin/sendmail directly.

           The default queue directory.
