within it to support the local@host sublist. The
sublist handles bounces, but not subscriptions. It is intended for
creation of sublists that are part of an SQL database supported
distributed ezmlm list. For creation of regular sublists, use
While these switches can be omitted, the list will not function unless they are
- -3 mainlocal
- Local name of the main list for which this list is a sublist. If the
sublist is a sublist for digests, mainlocal should refer to the
mail list, i.e. stripped of ``-digest''. This is required in order for the
bounce texts to refer to the correct archive. Use the -d
- -4 mainhost
- Host name of the main list for which this list is a sublist.
- -6 host:port:user:pass:db:table
- SQL connect info. Specifies the host and port to connect to, the
user/password to use, the database name, and the root table name. The host
defaults to ``localhost'', the database and table to ``ezmlm''. The port
default is the default for the particular SQL server type used. For
sublists disseminating a digest, ``table'' will end in ``_digest''.
- This sublist is a sublist of a digest list. The -3 argment used
should be the local name of the main list, rather than the digest list,
i.e. the terminal ``-digest'' should be stripped.
- -5 owner
- The address to which to redirect mail send to
local-owner@host. The default is the owner
address for the main list.
A common task is to create both a sublist for the main list and a sublist for
the corresponding digest. Note that the local list names are given as is,
whereas the main list name always refers to the main list itself (and not its
digest). The main list is ``mainloc@mainhost'', the local sublist is
``me-sub1@myhost''; the main digest is ``mainloc-digest@mainhost'' and the
local digest sublist is ``me-sub1-digest@myhost''.
