The program operates in two modes: read and send.
Mail enters send mode when at least one email address
was specified in its command line. In this mode the program waits

the specified addresses and exits. See Composing Mail, for a
detailed description of this behavior.
If the command line contained no email addresses,

contents of the user system mailbox. Use the --file (-f)
option to specify another mailbox name. For more detail, see
In addition to the Mailutils configuration file,
