NAME
       maildir(1,5) - safely write(1,2) data to a qmail-style maildir(1,5)


SYNOPSIS
       maildir(1,5) dir


INTRODUCTION
       maildir(1,5)  is  a shell script which invokes safecat.  It is equivalent to
       safecat dir/tmp dir/new.  It saves a little typing for those  who  want
       to  use  qmail maildirs, which have a fixed structure.  safecat, on the
       other hand, allows the user to have one temporary  directory  for  many
       spool  directories. This is occasionally useful; some people don't like
       to multiply the number of places which need to be periodically  cleaned
       up.
