DESCRIPTION

Citadel (the binary name is citserver) is the core of the Citadel Suite. It provides Data-storage and Connection-oriented protocols like IMAP/POP/SMTP. Citserver will usualy be spawned via /etc/init.d or inittab. Unless using the -h option you shouldn't run several instances at once. .SH OPTIONS
