NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       from - Shows whom mail messages are from

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

       from [-s sender] [user]

       The  from command prints out the mail header lines in your
       mailbox file.

OPTIONS    [Toc]    [Back]

       Prints headers for mail sent by sender.  Specifies a  mail
       spool directory.

              Use this flag if you want to examine a mailbox in a
              directory other than /usr/spool/mail, which is  the
              system default.

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       If  user  is  specified,  then  user's mailbox is examined
       instead of your own.

EXAMPLES    [Toc]    [Back]

       To display the message headings in  your  mailbox,  enter:

              The  names of the senders and the message dates are
              displayed.  To display  the  message  headings  for
              mail sent by a specific user, enter: from -s dale

              Displays  only the message headings of the messages
              sent from user dale.  To display the message  headings
 in a specific user's mailbox, enter: from dawn

              The message headings from user dawn's  mailbox  are
              displayed,  provided  you  have read permission for
              dawn's mailbox.
