[5029]30.SH DESCRIPTION
31The
[5222]32.I from
[5029]33program prints out the mail header lines in your incoming mail
[19239]34to show you who your mail is from.  It does this by looking for mail
35in the local spool directory and then checking for mail marked as
36unseen on the post office server.  This command does not retrieve the
37mail from the post office or the spool directory.

[5237]39If no mail is waiting,
40.I from
41is silent unless one of
42.BR -v ", " -r ", or " -t
43is used, in which case it prints "You don't have any mail waiting."
44If the
45.B -n
46option is used,
47.I from
48is always silent if there is no mail.
