Command Qualifiers Defaults /ALL /NOALL /CHANNEL=name None /CONFIRM /NOCONFIRM /LOG /LOG
message-id[,...]A comma separated list of one or more message identification numbers shown with a previous DIRECTORY command. Ranges are allowed.
Queued messages may be returned to their originator with the RETURN command. The messages to be returned are specified by their message identification numbers shown by the most recent DIRECTORY command. That number appears in the leftmost column of the DIRECTORY command listing. Ambiguous message numbers must be qualified by the proper channel name with the /CHANNEL qualifier.
The returned message is in two parts. The first part explains the reason why the message is being returned; the text of the reason is contained in the file
return_bounced.txtfile located in the PMDF language-specific directory. The second part of the returned message contains the original message itself.
/NOALL (default)Return all messages shown by the last DIRECTORY command. When used in conjunction with the /CHANNEL qualifier, only those messages shown by the last DIRECTORY command for the specified channel will be returned. Unless /NOCONFIRM is specified with /ALL, you will be required to confirm any RETURN/ALL operation.
/CHANNEL=nameSpecifies the name of the channel from which to return messages. Wildcards are not permitted.
/NOCONFIRM (default)When /CONFIRM is specified, you will be prompted to confirm each message return operation.
/NOLOGSpecifies whether informational messages for each message return operation are generated.
