creating appropriate MIME parts for attachments and
OpenPGP signature; encoding attachments (in
.I Base64
or
.I Quoted-Printable
depending on their type); adding appropriate mail headers.
.PP

be piped directly to a program such as
.B sendmail(8)
to effectively send the message to a mail server.

The first lines of the input message, up to the first blank
