Maildir splitting relies upon filenames being sorted to output patches in the correct order.

4. OPTIONS

<mbox>
Mbox file to split. If not given, the mbox is read from the standard input.

<Maildir>
Root of the Maildir to split. This directory should contain the cur, tmp and new subdirectories.

-o<directory>
Directory in which to place the individual messages.

-b
If any file doesn(cqt begin with a From line, assume it is a single mail message instead of signaling error.

-d<prec>
Instead of the default 4 digits with leading zeros, different precision can be specified for the generated filenames.

-f<nn>
Skip the first <nn> numbers, for example if -f3 is specified, start the numbering with 0004.

--keep-cr
Do not remove \r from lines ending with \r\n.
