When to use the precedence fields in email? Mass mails, such as mailing-lists, should have a Precedence that gives a priority of bulk, junk, or list. At other systems these priorities will cause well-designed programs (such as the vacation reply program) to skip automatically replying to such messages. Also, this prevents most email servers from returning the message if it cannot be delivered.


An example of sending a bulk email message:

febootimail -TEXT "Sending mass email!" -FROM ed@example.net -TO ryan@example.com -PRECEDENCE bulk


In the example above, a localhost is used as an SMTP mail server. Usually, it is required to specify an SMTP server manually using the SMTP argument. Server authentication is performed with the AUTH, USER, and PASS arguments. An example with authentication:

febootimail -TEXT Sending email to list! -FROM ed@example.net -TO ryan@example.com -PRECEDENCE list -SUBJECT Precedence example -SMTP mail.example.com -AUTH AUTO -USER ed -PASS KJgfS@hD4AGH
