       formation about a user

DESCRIPTION
       courieruserinfo prints information about	a user given a	username  that
       is  accessable  to the Courier authentication library. Usernames	can be
       up to 64	characters long.

       Exactly what information	is retrieved by	courieruserinfo	can be	speci-
       fied  using various command line	switches. Default behaviour is to dis-
       play all	available user information. Using any of the specific informa-
       tion  switches  overrides this behaviour	even if	the -A switch is used.
       Any number of specific information switches can be combined.

       Each item to display is returned	on  a  separate	 line  in  the	format
       <item>=<value>.	If  an item cannot be found for	a user,	the associated
       value field is blank.  courieruserinfo cannot retrieve a	 user's	 pass-
       word.

EXAMPLE	COMMAND	LINES
       This command will display only the user's home directory:
	    courieruserinfo -d <username>

       As will this command:
	    courieruserinfo -A -d <username>

       Whereas this will display all available user information:
	    courieruserinfo -A <username>

       And this	will display the user's	home and maildir directories:
	    courieruserinfo -d -m <username>

LOGGING
       Logging	is  done  to  syslog  by  default or to	stderr if the --stderr
       switch is used.	courieruserinfo	logs all failures to retrieve user in-
       formation.

       courieruserinfo	does certain checks on command line arguments so it is
       important to put	--stderr first in the argument list if	it  is	to  be
       used in order for these checks to be logged properly.
