I am at present working with the mail expert in my office to get the mail

The "--" on the command-line shuts off any subsequent options parsing.
Hence, everything after it is treated as non-option arguments, which
would be names of mail folders. I.e. "-outdir" and everything that
follows is treated as input mail folders.
For piping via sendmail, the use of "-- -" is not needed. Something
like the following will work:
(newlines added for readability, it should be a single line)
BTW, all command-line options have to be specified before any non-option
