       notifyd - Cyrus notification server


       notifyd [ -C config-file ] [ -U uses ] [ -T timeout ]
               [ -D ]


       Notifyd is a daemon started from cyrmaster(8) that handles notification
       requests on behalf  of  lmtpd(8).   Notifyd  accepts  the  request  and
       performs the notification using the method specified in the request.

       Note  that  for  notifyd  to run properly you must set proto=udp in its
       cyrus.conf services entry.  prefork=1 is also recommended.

       Notifyd reads its configuration options out of the  imapd.conf(5)  file
       unless  specified  otherwise by -C.  The notifysocket option is used to
       specify the Unix domain socket to listen on for notifications.


       -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.


       null   Ignore the notification request.

       log    Log the notification to syslog (for testing).

       mailto Email the notification.  This method can ONLY be used in a Sieve
              'notify' action as it requires a mailto: URL to be specified  as
              an :option.

       zephyr Send  the  notification  as  a  zephyrgram.   If used in a Sieve
              'notify' action,  additional  recipients  can  be  specified  as


              Default configuration file.
