[GRLUG] Forwarding email files from maildir

To clarify how you'd do that:

for x in /path/to/files/*; do
   echo "HELO localhost"
   echo "MAIL FROM: <sender at address>"
   echo "RCPT TO: <recipient at address>"
   echo "DATA"
   cat ${x}
   echo ""
   echo "."
 ) | sendmail -B

Note I don't actually use sendmail, I use exim, and I know it supports
batch smtp input. I'm not 100% sure what the right arguments are for
sendmail to support it, or whether you might need some
extra/seperate program to support it.
