Username (-U or -USER)

Use the Username adapter command (-U or -USER) to identify the user name associated with the account being accessed. You can omit this command if mailbox session is currently active.

-USER user_name
Specify a valid user name for the email account being accessed.

When used for a data target and this command is omitted, the default profile is used to log on to the email system. You must be logged-on for the following scenarios:

  • A default profile has not been defined.
  • The messaging system does not support default profiles.
  • -U is not used to specify a profile.

The profile requires a password and the -P command is not used to specify the password.
