BSMTP(1)		    Network backup, recovery and verification			 BSMTP(1)

NAME
	bsmtp - Bacula's SMTP client (mail submission program)

SYNOPSIS
       bsmtp [options] <recipient> <...>

DESCRIPTION
       bsmtp  is  a  simple mail user agent designed to permit more flexibility than the standard
       mail programs typically found on Unix systems, and to ease portability. It can even run on
       Windows	machines. It is used by the Director daemon to send notifications and requests to
       the operator.

OPTIONS
       -4     Forces bsmtp to use IPv4 addresses only.

       -6     Forces bsmtp to use IPv6 addresses only.

       -8     Encode the mail in UTF-8.

       -a     Use any ip protocol for address resolution.

       -c     Set the Cc: header.

       -d nn  Set debug level to nn.

       -dt    Print timestamp in debug output.

       -f     Set the From: header. If not specified, bsmtp will try to use your username.

       -h mailhost:port
	      Use mailhost:port as the SMTP server. (default port: 25)

       -s     Set the Subject: header.

       -r     Set the Reply-To:: header.

       -l     Set the maximum number of lines to be sent. (default: unlimited)

       -?     Show version and usage of program.

USAGE
       recipients is a space separated list of email addresses.

       The body of the email message is read from standard input. Message is ended by sending the
       EOF  character  (Ctrl-D on many systems) on the start of a new line, much like many 'mail'
       commands.

       The actual, automated behavior of bsmtp will depend on the mail-related	configuration  of
       the Director in the Messages resource of bacula-dir.conf.

       Interactive use of bsmtp is pertinent to manually test and ensure these configuration bits
       are valid. This is highly recommended.

CONFIGURATION
       These commands should each appear on a single line in the configuration file.

       Messages {
	 Name = Standard
	 mailcommand = "/home/bacula/bin/bsmtp -h mail.domain.com -f \"\(Bacula\) \<%r\>\"
				  -s \"Bacula: %t %e of %c %l\" %r"
	 operatorcommand = "/home/bacula/bin/bsmtp -h mail.domain.com -f \"\(Bacula\) \<%r\>\"
					-s \"Bacula: Intervention needed for %j\" %r"
	 mail = sysadmin@site.domain.com = all, !skipped
	 operator = sysop@site.domain.com = mount
	 console = all, !skipped, !saved
	}

       home/bacula/bin	is  replaced  with  the  path  to  the	Bacula	binary	 directory,   and
       mail.domain.com is replaced with the fully qualified name of an SMTP server, which usually
       listen on port 25.

ENVIRONMENT
       If the -h option is not specified, bsmtp will  use  environment	variable  SMTPSERVER,  or
       'localhost' if not set.

NOTES
       Since bsmtp always uses a TCP connection rather than writing to a spool file, you may find
       that your From: address is being rejected because it does not contain a valid  domain,  or
       because	your  message  has  gotten  caught in spam filtering rules. Generally, you should
       specify a fully qualified domain name in the from field, and  depending	on  whether  your
       SMTP  gateway  is  Exim or Sendmail, you may need to modify the syntax of the from part of
       the message.

       If bsmtp cannot connect to the specified mail host, it will retry to connect to localhost.

BUGS
       If you are getting incorrect dates (e.g. 1970) and you  are  running  with  a  non-English
       locale, you might try setting the LANG="en_US" environment variable.
