Manual Reference Pages - DBMAIL-LMTPD (8)
dbmail-lmtpd - receive messages from an MTA supporting the Lightweight Mail Transport Protocol, as specified in RFC 2033.
dbmail-lmtpd [-f configfile] [-p pidfile] [-nvVh]
The dbmail-lmtpd daemon will spawn child processes as specified in the dbmail.conf file. These processes listen, by default, on port 24 of the localhost interface. Mail Transfer Agents, MTAs such as Postfix and Exim, speak LMTP to their Mail Delivery Agents which receive and store messages. DBMail implements such a system using a database backend.
Specify an alternate pid file. The daemons are currently hardcoded to use /var/run/dbmail-<daemon> for their pid files, and will halt if the pid file cannot be written. Use the -p pidfile option to place the pid file in your systems preferred location.
No daemonize. The program remains attached to the console from which it was started. This is quite useful for debugging when combined with the -v option.
Specify an alternate config file. The utilities are currently hardcoded to use /etc/dbmail.conf for their configs, and will halt if the config file cannot be found. Use the -f configfile option to specify your systems preferred config file location.
Quietly skip interactive prompts and helpful status messages which would otherwise be printed to stdout. Use two -qs to silence errors which would otherwise be printed to stderr.
Operate verbosely. Some of the utilities in the DBMail suite can take two -vs for extra verbosity. Those which dont understand this convention wont complain about having the extra -v and will simply operate at their normal verbosity.
