showpartial(1)                                     showpartial(1)

NAME
       showpartial - Fetch and display the body of a mail message
       that is included by reference

SYNOPSIS
       showpartial  file id partnum totalnum

DESCRIPTION
       The showpartial program will squirrel away the body  of  a
       MIME-format  message that is of type "message/partial" for
       later use.  When it is called on the last piece,  it  will
       put  the  pieces together and call metamail to display the
       full message.  It is intended to be called by metamail via
       a mailcap entry like the following:

       message/partial; showpartial %s %{id} %{number} %{total}

       The  parts  are squirrelled away on /tmp, which means that
       /tmp can fill up if you never  get  the  remaining  parts.
       When  the  message is finally displayed, via metamail, the
       parts are all discarded, and the user is asked whether  or
       not to delete the file containing the entire message.
