cyr_deny is used to deny individual users access to Cyrus services. The
first synopsis denies user user access to Cyrus services, the second
synopsis allows access again. cyr_deny works by adding an entry to the
Cyrus user_deny.db database; the third synopsis lists the entries in
the database. The service names to be matched are those as used in
cyr_deny reads its configuration options out of the
imapd.conf(5) file unless specified otherwise by -C.
- -C config-file
- Use the specified configuration file config-file rather than the
- -a user
- Allow access to all services for user user (remove any entry from
the deny database).
- -s services
- Deny access only to the given services, which is a comma-separated
list of wildcard patterns. The default is “*” which denies
access to all services.
- -m message
- Provide a message which is sent to the user to explain why access is being
denied. A default message is used if none is specified.
- List the entries in the deny database.
This command was introduced in version 3.0.
