NAME

sympa_automatic, sympa_automatic.pl - Automatic list creation daemon

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS

sympa_automatic.pl [ -d, --debug ] [ -f, --file=another.sympa.conf ]
[ -k, --keepcopy=directory ]
[ [ -m, --mail ]
[ -h, --help ] [ -v, --version ]

DESCRIPTION

Sympa_automatic.pl is a program which scans permanently the automatic creation spool and processes each message.

If the list a message is bound for has not been there and list creation is authorized, it will be created. Then the message is stored into incoming message spool again and wait for processing by sympa_msg.pl.

OPTIONS

sympa_automatic.pl may run with following options in general.
-d, --debug Enable debug mode.
-f, --config=file Force Sympa to use an alternative configuration file instead of /usr/local/etc/sympa/sympa.conf.
--log_level=level Sets Sympa log level.
sympa_automatic.pl may run in daemon mode with following options.
--foreground The process remains attached to the TTY.
-k, --keepcopy=directory This option tells Sympa to keep a copy of every incoming message, instead of deleting them. ‘directory’ is the directory to store messages.
-m, --mail Sympa will log calls to sendmail, including recipients. This option is useful for keeping track of each mail sent (log files may grow faster though).
With following options sympa_automatic.pl will print some information and exit.
-h, --help Print this help message.
-v, --version Print the version number.

FILES
