vmsmaild - mail daemon for DECnet
[-vVhfU] [-l logtype]
vmsmaild is a daemon that forwards incoming VMSmail (or mail11) message
to Unix users. It should be started at system boot time (after DECnet
has been started) and must be run as root. It is recommended that you
run vmsmaild from dnetd(8)
The options below affect the behaviour of vmsmaild. If you are using
dnetd then these options should be specified in the dnetd.conf(5) file.
-l Set logging options. The following are available:
-lm Log to /dev/mono. (only useful if you have my mono monitor
driver or mdacon and a second monitor)
-le Log to stderr. Use this for debugging or testing combined
-ls Log to syslog(3). This is the default if no options are
-v Verbose. The more of these there are the more verbose
vmsmaild will be. Don’t use more than one for normal
operation because it will seriously impair performance.
-h -? Displays help for using the command.
-V Show the version of vmsmaild.
-f Accepts mail send with the MAIL/FOREIGN command. Setting
this option complicates the decoding of all mail message
quite substantially because the remote end thinks it is
talking to a VMS machine that understands RMS file
formats. Only use this option if you really need it.
-U Don’t check that the reply user exists when starting up.
If you only want to use linux as a recipient of mail from
VMS systems and don’t want to create a vmsmail user then
set this option. See the Documentation/mail.README file
for more information on setting up a mail gateway.
