Manual Reference Pages  -  DBMAIL-POP3D (8)

NAME

dbmail-pop3d - provides access to the DBMail system to client support- ing Post Office Protocol, POP3, as specified in RFC 1939.

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS

dbmail-pop3d [-f configfile] [-p pidfile] [-nvVh]

DESCRIPTION

The dbmail-pop3d daemon is a fully featured POP3 server. It will spawn into a number of default processes as set in the dbmail.conf file. These processes will enable full POP3 communication with clients.

OPTIONS

-p pidfile

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 system’s preferred location.

-n

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.

COMMON OPTIONS

-f configfile

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 system’s preferred config file location.

-q

Quietly skip interactive prompts and helpful status messages which would otherwise be printed to stdout. Use two -q’s to silence errors which would otherwise be printed to stderr.

-v

Operate verbosely. Some of the utilities in the DBMail suite can take two -v’s for extra verbosity. Those which don’t understand this convention won’t complain about having the extra -v and will simply operate at their normal verbosity.

-V

Show the version and copyright, then exit.

-h

Show a brief summary of options, then exit.
