NAME

vadduser - Add a user to a virtual domain

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS

vadduser [-c INT] [--msgcount=INT] [-D] [--no-mailbox] [-d STR] [--directory=STR] [-e INT] [--expiry=INT] [-f STR] [--forward=STR] [--password=STR] [-P] [--no-password] [-p STR] [--personal=STR] [-Q INT] [--hardquota=INT] [-q INT] [--softquota=INT] [--quiet] [-z INT] [--msgsize=INT] USERNAME [ALIAS1 ...]\n or vaddalias USERNAME [ALIAS1 ...]

DESCRIPTION

This program is used to set up a user within a virtual host. If this program is reading from a tty, it will then ask for a password (twice, to make sure you typed it in correctly), otherwise it will read the password from the input with no prompting. It will then add the user to the virtual password table in the current directory and create a mail directory for the new user. It will also add an entry for each of the named aliases.

OPTIONS

-c INT, --msgcount=INT Set the user’s message count limit.
-D, --no-mailbox Do not create a mailbox for this user. Defaults to true for vaddalias.
-d STR, --directory=STR Set the path to the user’s mailbox. Note that this directory is unconditionally prefixed with ./.
-e INT, --expiry=INT Set the account’s expiry time (in seconds).
-f STR, --forward=STR Add a forwarding address to this user (this may be used multiple times).
--password=STR Encrypted password. Defaults to asking for a password.
-P, --no-password Do not ask for a password, and instead set the pass phrase field to an unusable value.
-p STR, --personal=STR Set the user’s personal information.
-Q INT, --hardquota=INT Set the user’s hard quota (in bytes).
-q INT, --softquota=INT Set the user’s soft quota (in bytes).
--quiet Suppress all status messages.
-z INT, --msgsize=INT Set the user’s message size limit (in bytes).

RETURN VALUE

0 if all steps were successful, non-zero otherwise. If any of the steps fail, a diagnostic message is printed.

SEE ALSO

vsetup(1)

NOTES

You must have either created the users subdirectory by hand or run the vsetup program before using this program.

This program expects the environment variable HOME to be set, and executes a change directory to the contents of it before starting. It is also required that you change user to the domain owner before using these utilities.
