ezmlm-receipt - handle sublist replies at the main list
ezmlm-receipt [ -dD ] dir
ezmlm-receipt handles mail from sublists of the main list
stored in dir and, if it exists, the associated main
digest list. ezmlm-receipt is used for main list with
only sublists as subscribers. It is not useful for normal
ezmlm-receipt is normally invoked from a .qmail file. It
reads a mail message from its standard input, and a mail
envelope from the SENDER, LOCAL, and HOST environment
ezmlm-receipt has two functions. It takes the place of
ezmlm-receipt(1) for main lists that have only sublists as
subscribers. Bounces do not lead to removal of the bounc-
ing address. emzlm-receipt saves the bounce, and logs the
event to the mail log. ezmlm-receipt also saves the
bounce to dir/bounce/dnnn.ppp where nnn is a time stamp
and ppp the PID of the process. A maximum of 50 bounces
are saved. Further bounces are discarded until room is
made in the bounce directory by manually removing files.
If the list uses and SQL database, the even is logged to
the _mlog table instead, and only if the distribution
cookie matches. The bounce is still saved, but only if it
contained a matching distribution cookie.
ezmlm-receipt also handles feedback messages from the sub-
list. These are used to monitor that the sublist is able
to send out messages. Receipt of feedback messages is
logged to the mail log. If the list uses and SQL
database, the even is logged to the _mlog table instead,
and only if the distribution cookie matches.
-d ezmlm-receipt will assume the message is for a
digest list. Normally, ezmlm-receipt will autode-
tect this from the bounce address. Autodetection
makes ezmlm-receipt less flexible and will be
removed in future versions.
-D ezmlm-receipt will assume that the bounce is for a
normal (non-digest) list. Normally, ezmlm-receipt
will autodetect this from the bounce address.
Autodetection makes ezmlm-receipt less flexible and
will be removed in future versions. -D will become
ezmlm-receipt handles mail sent to any of the following
Trash. A help message or subscription acknowledg-
Distribution bounce. Message number msg was lost
on the way to the sublist box@domain.
Pre-VERP distribution bounce, in QSBMF format.
Message number msg was lost on the way to one or
more sublists; ezmlm-receipt will parse the bounce
to figure out the addresses.
Feedback message from a sublist. ezmlm-receipt
will figure out message number and sublist address
from the envelope sender.
For all the above addresses if, local is followed
by -digest, messages are assumed to relate to the
digest list, and are stored in dir/digest/bounce
rather than in dir /bounce .
