       mailstats - display mail statistics


       mailstats [-c] [-o] [-p] [-P] [-C cffile] [-f stfile]


       The mailstats utility displays the current mail statistics.

       First, the time at which statistics started being kept is displayed, in
       the format specified by ctime(3).  Then, the statistics for each mailer
       are  displayed  on  a  single line, each with the following white space
       separated fields:

              M           The mailer number.
              msgsfr      Number of messages from the mailer.
              bytes_from  Kbytes from the mailer.
              msgsto      Number of messages to the mailer.
              bytes_to    Kbytes to the mailer.
              msgsrej     Number of messages rejected.
              msgsdis     Number of messages discarded.
              msgsqur     Number of messages quarantined.
              Mailer      The name of the mailer.

       After this display, a line totaling the values for all of  the  mailers
       is  displayed  (preceded  with  a  ``T''),  separated from the previous
       information by  a  line  containing  only  equals  (``='')  characters.
       Another line preceded with a ``C'' lists the number of TCP connections.

       The options are as follows:

       -C     Read  the  specified  file  instead  of  the  default   sendmail
              configuration file.

       -c     Try   to   use   instead  of  the  default  sendmail
              configuration file.

       -f     Read the specified statistics file  instead  of  the  statistics
              file specified in the sendmail configuration file.

       -P     Output  information  in  program-readable  mode without clearing

       -p     Output  information   in   program-readable   mode   and   clear

       -o     Don't display the name of the mailer in the output.

       The mailstats utility exits 0 on success, and >0 if an error occurs.

       /etc/mail/statistics     The default sendmail statistics file.
