qconfirm-inject - set Message-ID and VERP and send a mail message

qconfirm-inject [-v] [-nN] recip ...

qconfirm-inject runs qmail-inject(8) to preprocess and send a message it reads from standard input. qconfirm-inject tells qmail-inject(8) to set a Message-ID and variable envelope return path (VERP), according to the configuration in the qconfirm directory, so that delivery notifications are handled through qconfirm-notice(1), and followups can be detected by qconfirm-check-mid(1).
qconfirm-inject also keeps track of Message-IDs of mail messages it injects to enable qconfirm-notice(1) to reliably validate delivery notifications and delivery confirmation request messages.

verbose. Print verbose messages to standard error.
-n -N
These options are passed to qmail-inject(8).

qconfirm-inject reads its configuration from files in the subdirectory conf/ of the qconfirm directory (normally ``~/.qconfirm/conf/''). Only the first line of a configuration file is considered.
The configuration file QNOTICE_USER sets the local part (without extension) of the mail address that handles delivery notifications. If QNOTICE_USER is not set, qconfirm-inject checks the environment variables USER and LOGNAME, in this order. If none of these is set, qconfirm-inject refuses to run. QNOTICE_USER must be set to the user's login name.
The configuration file QNOTICE_HOST sets the host part of the mail address that handles delivery notifications. Normally QNOTICE_HOST is the host part of the mail address qconfirm is configured for.
The configuration file QNOTICE_EXT overrides the default extension to be used to receive delivery notifications (``qnotice-'').
The configuration file QCONFIRM_MID sets the host part of the Message-ID to be used when sending mail messages. Only the first mid of the space-separated list is considered. If QCONFIRM_MID is not set, qconfirm-inject refuses to run.
The configuration file QCONFIRM_MID_TIMEOUT sets the timeout for expiration of Message-IDs in seconds. Default is 3628800.
The configuration file QNOTICE_QMAIL_INJECT overrides the default path to the qmail-inject program (``qmail-inject'').

The environment variable QCONFIRM_DIR overrides the default location of the user's qconfirm directory (``~/.qconfirm/'').


qconfirm(1), qconfirm-inject(1), qconfirm-check(1), qconfirm-conf(1), qconfirm-accept(1), qconfirm-control(1), qconfirm-cdb-check(1), qconfirm-cdb-update(1), qconfirm-return(1)
