check-sendfile(1) Check if some files have arrived




The check-sendfile command tests if there are files hosed in the user's sendfile spool area. If so he will be informed about the files.

This command should be started from /etc/profile to give all users a chance to notices that some files have arrived in their absence. As the defauld behaviour of sendfiled is to write a note on the user's tty he won't notice receiption if he's not logged in. The lack of need to be logged in is one of sendfile's advantages.


Spool area for the specifig user.
