       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 configu-
	      ration file.

       -c     Try to use submit.cf instead of the default sendmail  configura-
	      tion 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 statis-

       -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/sendmail.cf	The default sendmail configuration file.
       /var/log/mail/statistics The default sendmail statistics file.
