DBMAIL-POP3D(8)						       DBMAIL-POP3D(8)

       dbmail-pop3d - provides access to the DBMail system to client support-
       ing Post	Office Protocol, POP3, as specified in RFC 1939.

       dbmail-pop3d [-f	configfile] [-p	pidfile] [-nvVh]

       The dbmail-pop3d	daemon is a fully featured POP3	server.

       -p pidfile
	   Specify an alternate	pid file. By default the daemons use
	   dbmail-<daemon>.pid for their pid files, saving them	in the
	   directory specified by the pid_directory entry in dbmail.conf or if
	   that	does not exist the value set by	the configuration option
	   --localstatedir, 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: inetd mode. The program remains attached to the
	   console from	which it was started and will read and write on
	   stdin/stdout. This is quite useful for debugging when combined with
	   the -v option. It is	also used for running from (x)inetd.

	   No daemonize: init mode. The	program	remains	attached to the
	   console and will listen on the network sockets defined in
	   dbmail.conf.	This is	mostly used when running from inittab or under
	   the control of daemontools.

       -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. Debian	is
	   patched to have /etc/dbmail/dbmail.conf as the default.

	   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.

	   Show	the version and	copyright, then	exit.

	   Show	a brief	summary	of options, then exit.
