NAMEdbounce-simple-safecat - store double-bounced email messages into a Maildir
SYNOPSISdbounce-simple-safecat [-a addr] [-d dir] [-i queueid] [-t type] -f msg
DESCRIPTIONThe dbounce-simple-safecat utility reads an email message file from the local MTA's queue directory and invokes the safecat(1) utility to store it into a Maildir-format directory for the administrator's perusal. It is intended to be used as a double-bounce handler by mail transfer agents such as dma(8) (when dma's DBOUNCEPROG configuration setting is specified). The dbounce-simple-safecat utility accepts the following command-line options; only -f is mandatory: -a addr The recipient of the bounce message. -d dir The bounce directory, /var/spool/mail/dma-bounces by default. -f msg The full path to the bounced message to process. -i queueid The ID of the bounce message in the local MTA's queue. -t type The MTA type, currently unused.
EXAMPLESCopy a message from the local dma(8) queue into the default double-bounce Maildir: dbounce-simple-safecat -a email@example.com -i 40c1b8.882e250 -t dma -f /var/spool/dma/40c1b8.882e250 A minimal execution with only the mandatory parameters: dbounce-simple-safecat -f /var/spool/dma/40c1b8.882e250 Explicitly specify the destination directory: dbounce-simple-safecat -d /root/bounces -f /var/spool/dma/40c1b8.882e250
EXIT STATUSThe dbounce-simple-safecat utility exits 0 on success, and >0 if an error occurs.
