       lmtpd - LMTP server process


       lmtpd [ -C config-file ] [ -U uses ] [ -T timeout ] [ -D ]
             [ -a ]


       Lmtpd is an LMTP server used to deliver mail to the IMAP mailstore.  It
       accepts commands on its standard input and  responds  on  its  standard
       output.   It  MUST  be  invoked  by cyrmaster(8) with those descriptors
       attached to a remote client connection.

       Lmtpd reads its configuration options out  of  the  imapd.conf(5)  file
       unless specified otherwise by -C.


       -C config-file
              Read configuration options from config-file.

       -U uses
              The  maximum number of times that the process should be used for
              new connections before shutting down.  The default is 250.

       -T timeout
              The number of seconds that the  process  will  wait  for  a  new
              connection  before shutting down.  Note that a value of 0 (zero)
              will disable the timeout.  The default is 60.

       -D     Run external debugger specified in debug_command.

       -a     Preauthorize  connections  initiated  on  an  internet   socket,
              instead  of  requiring  LMTP AUTH.  This should only be used for
              connections coming from trusted hosts.
