/usr/bin/deliver [-d] [-r address] [-f address] [-m mailbox] [-a auth-
id] [-e] [-q] [-F flag]... [userid]...

Delivers to mailbox. If any userids are specified, attempts to deliver
to user.userid.mailbox for each userid. If the access control list
(ACL) on any such mailbox does not grant the sender the right to post
mail (p right) or if -m is not specified, then delivers to the INBOX
for the userid , regardless of the ACL on the INBOX.
If no userids are specified, the deliver command attempts to
deliver to mailbox. If the ACL on mailbox does not grant the
sender the p right, the delivery fails. Specifies the autho‐
rization id of the sender. Defaults to “anonymous”. Enables
duplicate delivery suppression. This suppresses delivery of the
message to a mailbox if a message with the same message-id (or
resent-message-id) is recorded as having already been delivered
to the mailbox. Records the mailbox and message-id/resent-mes‐
sage-id of all successful deliveries. Delivers a message even
when the receiving mailbox is over its quota. Sets the system
option or keyword flag on the delivered message. Removes the
duplicate delivery database of entries older than days.
The deliver command reads a message from the standard input and deliv‐
ers it to one or more IMAP mailboxes.
The deliver command reads its configuration options out of the
imapd.conf file. Depending on the setting of the reject8bit field in
the imapd.conf file, deliver either rejects messages with 8-bit-set
characters in the headers or changes these characters to X.
