BOUNCE(8)			     System Manager's Manual				BOUNCE(8)

NAME
       bounce - Postfix message bounce or defer daemon

SYNOPSIS
       bounce [generic Postfix daemon options]

DESCRIPTION
       The  bounce  daemon  maintains per-message log files with non-delivery status information.
       Each log file is named after the queue file that it corresponds to, and is kept in a queue
       subdirectory  named after the service name in the master.cf file (either bounce or defer).
       This program expects to be run from the master(8) process manager.

       The bounce daemon processes two types of service requests:

       o      Append a recipient status record to a per-message log file.

       o      Post a bounce message, with a copy of a log file and of the corresponding  message.
	      When the bounce is posted successfully, the log file is deleted.

       The software does a best effort to notify the sender that there was a problem. A notifica-
       tion is sent even when the log file or original message cannot be read.

       Optionally, a client can request that  the  per-message	log  file  be  deleted	when  the
       requested  operation  fails.   This  is	used by clients that cannot retry transactions by
       themselves, and that depend on retry logic in their own client.

STANDARDS
       RFC 822 (ARPA Internet Text Messages)
       RFC 1894 (Delivery Status Notifications)

DIAGNOSTICS
       Problems and transactions are logged to syslogd(8).

BUGS
       The log files use an ad-hoc, unstructured format. This will have to  change  in	order  to
       easily support standard delivery status notifications.

CONFIGURATION PARAMETERS
       The  following main.cf parameters are especially relevant to this program. See the Postfix
       main.cf file for syntax details and for default values. Use  the  postfix  reload  command
       after a configuration change.

       bounce_notice_recipient
	      The recipient of single bounce postmaster notices.

       2bounce_notice_recipient
	      The recipient of double bounce postmaster notices.

       delay_notice_recipient
	      The recipient of "delayed mail" postmaster notices.

       bounce_size_limit
	      Limit the amount of original message context that is sent in a non-delivery notifi-
	      cation.

       mail_name
	      Use this mail system name in the introductory text at the start of  a  bounce  mes-
	      sage.

       notify_classes
	      Notify  the  postmaster  of  bounced  mail  when this parameter includes the bounce
	      class. For privacy reasons, the message body is not included.
