       mailer - script to warn users about their weak passwords


       mailer password-files


       This manual page documents briefly the mailer command, which is part of
       the john  package.   This  manual  page  was  written  for  the  Debian
       GNU/Linux  distribution  because  the  original program does not have a
       manual page.  john, better known as John the Ripper, is a tool to  find
       weak passwords of users in a server.
       The  mailer  tool is useful to inform users which have been found to be
       using weak passwords by mail.

       You should edit the message mailer will send to the users, but remember
       to copy the script to a safe place before editing it, as it’s generally
       a bad idea to modify things living in /usr.


       john(8), unafs(8), unique(8), unshadow(8).

       The programs are documented fully by John’s documentation, which should
       be  available  in  /usr/share/doc/john  or other location, depending on
       your system.
