NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       popcv - Migrate passwords from the /var/spool/pop/POP file
       to the mailauth database

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

       /usr/bin/popcv [location]

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       The popcv utility gives system administrators the  ability
       to  migrate  passwords from the /var/spool/pop/POP file to
       the mailauth database.  Once  the  passwords  are  in  the
       mailauth  database, use the mailauth utility to administer
       the database.

       Use the location parameter to provide the  full  PATH  for
       the  POP file. If the location parameter is not specified,
       a check is made in the /etc/passwd file for a  pop  entry.
       If an entry exists and if a POP file is found in the $HOME
       directory for the pop user, then that file is used. If  no
       file  is  found, the default location of /var/spool/pop is

       When the POP file is found, the passwords are migrated  to
       the  mailauth  database  as POP passwords. If the mailauth
       database has not been initialized or converted from previous
  versions, the system administrator is prompted to use
       the mailauth utility.
