qmail-local(8) [suse man page]

qmail-local(8)                                                System Manager's Manual                                               qmail-local(8)

qmail-local - deliver or forward a mail message SYNOPSIS
qmail-local [ -nN ] user homedir local dash ext domain sender defaultdelivery DESCRIPTION
qmail-local reads a mail message and delivers it to user by the procedure described in dot-qmail(5). The message's envelope recipient is local@domain. qmail-local records local@domain in a new Delivered-To header field. If exactly the same Delivered-To: local@domain already appears in the header, qmail-local bounces the message, to prevent mail forwarding loops. The message's envelope sender is sender. qmail-local records sender in a new Return-Path header field. homedir is the user's home directory. It must be an absolute directory name. dash and ext identify the .qmaildashext file used by qmail-local; see dot-qmail(5). Normally dash is either empty or a lone hyphen. If it is empty, qmail-local treats a nonexistent .qmailext the same way as an empty .qmailext: namely, following the delivery instructions in defaultdelivery. The standard input for qmail-local must be a seekable file, so that qmail-local can read it more than once. OPTIONS
-n Instead of reading and delivering the message, print a description of the delivery instructions. -N (Default.) Read and deliver the message. EXIT CODES
0 if the delivery is completely successful; nonzero if any delivery instruction failed. Exit code 111 indicates temporary failure. SEE ALSO

qmail-command - user-specified mail delivery program SYNOPSIS
in .qmailext: |command DESCRIPTION
qmail-local will, upon your request, feed each incoming mail message through a program of your choice. When a mail message arrives, qmail-local runs sh -c command in your home directory. It makes the message available on command's standard input. WARNING: The mail message does not begin with qmail-local's usual Return-Path and Delivered-To lines. Note that qmail-local uses the same file descriptor for every delivery in your .qmail file, so it is not safe for command to fork a child that reads the message in the background while the parent exits. EXIT CODES
command's exit codes are interpreted as follows: 0 means that the delivery was successful; 99 means that the delivery was successful, but that qmail-local should ignore all further delivery instructions; 100 means that the delivery failed permanently (hard error); 111 means that the delivery failed but should be tried again in a little while (soft error). Currently 64, 65, 70, 76, 77, 78, and 112 are considered hard errors, and all other codes are considered soft errors, but command should avoid relying on this. ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES
qmail-local supplies several useful environment variables to command. WARNING: These environment variables are not quoted. They may con- tain special characters. They are under the control of a possibly malicious remote user. SENDER is the envelope sender address. NEWSENDER is the forwarding envelope sender address, as described in dot-qmail(5). RECIPIENT is the envelope recipient address, local@domain. USER is user. HOME is your home directory, homedir. HOST is the domain part of the recipi- ent address. LOCAL is the local part. EXT is the address extension, ext. HOST2 is the portion of HOST preceding the last dot; HOST3 is the portion of HOST preceding the second-to-last dot; HOST4 is the portion of HOST preceding the third-to-last dot. EXT2 is the portion of EXT following the first dash; EXT3 is the portion following the second dash; EXT4 is the portion following the third dash. DEFAULT is the portion corresponding to the default part of the .qmail-... file name; DEFAULT is not set if the file name does not end with default. DTLINE and RPLINE are the usual Delivered-To and Return-Path lines, including newlines. UFLINE is the UUCP-style From_ line that qmail- local adds to mbox-format files. SEE ALSO
