NAME

sympa_msg, sympa_msg.pl - Daemon to handle incoming messages

SYNOPSIS

sympa_msg.pl [ -d, --debug ] [ -f, --file=another.sympa.conf ]
-k, --keepcopy=directory ]
-l, --lang=lang ] [ -m, --mail ]

DESCRIPTION

Sympa_msg.pl is a program which scans permanently the incoming message spool and processes each message.
Messages bound for the lists and authorized sending are modified as neccesity and at last stored into digest spool, archive spool and outgoing spool. Those bound for command addresses are interpreted and appropriate actions are taken. Those bound for listmasters or list admins are forwarded to them.

OPTIONS

Sympa_msg.pl follows the usual GNU command line syntax, with long options starting with two dashes ("--"). A summary of options is included below.
-d, --debug
Enable debug mode.
-f, --config=file
Force Sympa to use an alternative configuration file instead of /etc/sympa/sympa/sympa.conf.
-l, --lang=lang
Set this option to use a language for Sympa. The corresponding gettext catalog file must be located in $LOCALEDIR directory.
--log_level=level
Sets Sympa log level.
sympa_msg.pl may run in daemon mode with following options.
--foreground
The process remains attached to the TTY.
-k, --keepcopy=directory
This option tells Sympa to keep a copy of every incoming message, instead of deleting them. `directory' is the directory to store messages.
-m, --mail
Sympa will log calls to sendmail, including recipients. This option is useful for keeping track of each mail sent (log files may grow faster though).

Note: This option was deprecated.
 
Process is dedicated to messages distribution, commands or to automatic lists creation (default three of them).
