       dbmail-lmtpd - receive messages from an MTA supporting the Lightweight
       Mail Transport Protocol, as specified in RFC 2033.


       dbmail-lmtpd [-f configfile] [-p pidfile] [-nvVh]


       The dbmail-lmtpd daemon will spawn child processes as specified in the
       dbmail.conf file. These processes listen, by default, on port 24 of the
       localhost interface. Mail Transfer Agents, MTA’s such as Postfix and
       Exim, speak LMTP to their Mail Delivery Agents which receive and store
       messages. DBMail implements such a system using a database backend.


       -p pidfile
          Specify an alternate pid file. The daemons are currently hardcoded
          to use /var/run/dbmail-<daemon> for their pid files, and will halt
          if the pid file cannot be written. Use the -p pidfile option to
          place the pid file in your system’s preferred location.

          No daemonize. The program remains attached to the console from which
          it was started. This is quite useful for debugging when combined
          with the -v option.


       -f configfile
          Specify an alternate config file. The utilities are currently
          hardcoded to use /etc/dbmail.conf for their configs, and will halt
          if the config file cannot be found. Use the -f configfile option to
          specify your system’s preferred config file location.

          Quietly skip interactive prompts and helpful status messages which
          would otherwise be printed to stdout. Use two -q’s to silence errors
          which would otherwise be printed to stderr.

          Operate verbosely. Some of the utilities in the DBMail suite can
          take two -v’s for extra verbosity. Those which don’t understand this
          convention won’t complain about having the extra -v and will simply
          operate at their normal verbosity.
