=head1 NAME

qmtppull - pull mail from remote server over SSH with QMTP

=head1 SYNOPSIS

B<qmtppull> I<server> I<user> I<maildir> I<prefix> S<[ I<sshoptions> ]>

=head1 DESCRIPTION

B<qmtppull> is a small shell script that uses B<stdinxout> to feed
contents of a B<maildir> on a remote host to a local B<qmail-qmtpd>,
effectively delivering the messages locally. This connection is
cryptographically authenticated and protected by B<ssh>.

I suggest you use an RSA key with an empty password and limited
allowed commands for batch mail sending.

=head1 REQUIREMENTS

The local host must have B<qmail-qmtpd> and B<ssh> installed. The
remote host must have B<maildirserial> and B<serialqmtp> (from the
serialmail package) and B<ssh> installed, and have a way of storing
the messages in the maildir.
