NAME
       dovecot-lda - Dovecot's local mail delivery agent

SYNOPSIS
       dovecot-lda  [-ek]  [-a	address]  [-c config_file] [-d username] [-f envelope_sender] [-m
       mailbox] [-o setting=value] [-p path]

DESCRIPTION
       The dovecot-lda is a local mail delivery agent which takes mail from an MTA  and  delivers
       it to a user's mailbox, while keeping Dovecot index files up to date.

       Main features of the dovecot-lda are:

       *   Mailbox indexing during mail delivery, providing faster mailbox access later

       *   Quota enforcing by the quota plugin

       *   Sieve language support by the Pigeonhole sieve plugin

OPTIONS
       Options accepted by dovecot-lda:

       -a address
	      Destination address (e.g. user+ext@domain). Default is the same as username.

       -c config_file
	      Alternative configuration file path.

       -d username
	      Destination  username.   If  given,  the user information is looked up from userdb.
	      Typically used with virtual users, but not necessarily with system users.

       -e     If mail gets rejected, write the rejection reason to stderr and exit with status 77
	      (EX_NOPERM).  The default is to send a rejection mail ourself.

       -f envelope_sender
	      Envelope sender address.

       -k     Don't clear all environment at startup.

       -m mailbox
	      Destination  mailbox (default is INBOX).	If the mailbox doesn't exist, it will not
	      be created (unless the lda_mailbox_autocreate setting is set to yes).  If a message
	      couldn't be saved to the mailbox for any reason, it's delivered to INBOX instead.

       -o setting=value
	      Overrides  the  configuration  setting  from /etc/dovecot/dovecot.conf and from the
	      userdb with the given value.  In order to override multiple settings, the -o option
	      may be specified multiple times.

       -p path
	      Path  to	the mail to be delivered instead of reading from stdin.  If using maildir
	      the file is hard linked to the destination if possible.  This allows a single  mail
	      to  be delivered to multiple users using hard links, but currently it also prevents
	      deliver from updating cache file so it shouldn't be used unless really necessary.

EXIT STATUS
       dovecot-lda will exit with one of the following values:

       0   Delivery was successful. (EX_OK)

       64  Invalid parameter given. (EX_USAGE)

       77  -e option was used and mail was rejected.  Typically this happens when  user  is  over
	   quota and quota_full_tempfail = no is configured. (EX_NOPERM)

       75  A  temporary  failure.  This is returned for almost all failures. See the log file for
	   details. (EX_TEMPFAIL)

FILES
       /etc/dovecot/dovecot.conf
	      Dovecot's main configuration file.

       /etc/dovecot/conf.d/10-mail.conf
	      Mailbox locations and namespaces.

       /etc/dovecot/conf.d/15-lda.conf
	      LDA specific settings.

       /etc/dovecot/conf.d/90-plugin.conf
	      Plugin specific settings.

       /etc/dovecot/conf.d/90-quota.conf
	      Quota configuration.
