    DESCRIPTION

           This  manual page gives a brief introduction to SMTP mail addresses, as
           used on the Internet.  These addresses are in the general format
    
                user@domain
    
           where a domain is a  hierarchical  dot-separated  list  of  subdomains.
           These examples are valid forms of the same address:
    
                eric@monet.berkeley.edu
                Eric Allman <eric@monet.berkeley.edu>
                   eric@monet.berkeley.edu (Eric Allman)
    
           The  domain part ("monet.berkeley.edu") is a mail-accepting domain.  It
           can be a host and in the past it usually was, but it  doesn't  have  to
           be.  The domain part is not case sensitive.
    
           The local part ("eric") is often a username, but its meaning is defined
           by the local software.  Sometimes it is case sensitive,  although  that
           is  unusual.   If  you  see a local-part that looks like garbage, it is
           usually because of a gateway between an internal e-mail system and  the
           net, here are some examples:
    
                "surname/admd=telemail/c=us/o=hp/prmd=hp"@some.where
                USER%SOMETHING@some.where
                machine!machine!name@some.where
                I2461572@some.where
    
           (These  are,  respectively, an X.400 gateway, a gateway to an arbitrary
           internal mail system  that  lacks  proper  internet  support,  an  UUCP
           gateway, and the last one is just boring username policy.)
    
           The  real-name  part ("Eric Allman") can either be placed before <>, or
           in () at the end.  (Strictly speaking the two aren't the same, but  the
           difference  is beyond the scope of this page.)  The name may have to be
           quoted using "", for example, if it contains ".":
    
                "Eric P. Allman" <eric@monet.berkeley.edu>
    
       Abbreviation.
           Many mail systems let users abbreviate the domain name.  For  instance,
           users  at  berkeley.edu  may get away with "eric@monet" to send mail to
           Eric Allman.  This behavior is deprecated.  Sometimes it works, but you
           should not depend on it.
    
       Route-addrs.
           In the past, sometimes one had to route a message through several hosts
           to get it to its final destination.  Addresses which show these  relays
           are termed "route-addrs".  These use the syntax:
    
                <@hosta,@hostb:user@hostc>
    
           /etc/aliases
           ~/.forward
