ezmlm-return(1)		    General Commands Manual	       ezmlm-return(1)

NAME
       ezmlm-return - handle mailing list bounces

SYNOPSIS
       ezmlm-return [ -dD ] dir

DESCRIPTION
       ezmlm-return handles bounces for	the mailing list stored	in dir and, if
       it exists, the associated digest	list.

       ezmlm-return is normally	invoked	from a .qmail file.  It	reads  a  mail
       message	from  its standard input, and a	mail envelope from the SENDER,
       LOCAL, and HOST environment variables.

       ezmlm-return exits 99, not 0, upon success.

OPTIONS
       -d     ezmlm-return will	assume the bounce is for a digest list.	  Nor-
	      mally,  ezmlm-return  will  autodetect  this from	the bounce ad-
	      dress. Autodetection makes ezmlm-return less flexible  and  will
	      be removed in future versions.

       -D     ezmlm-return  will  assume that the bounce is for	a normal (non-
	      digest) list.  Normally, ezmlm-return will autodetect this  from
	      the bounce address. Autodetection	makes ezmlm-return less	flexi-
	      ble and will be removed in future	versions.  -D will become  the
	      default.

ADDRESSES
       ezmlm-return handles mail sent to any of	the following addresses:

       local-return-
	      Trash.  A	help message or	subscription acknowledgment bounced.

       local-return-msg-box=domain
	      Distribution  bounce.  Message number msg	was lost on the	way to
	      box@domain.

       local-return-msg-
	      Pre-VERP distribution bounce, in QSBMF format.   Message	number
	      msg  was	lost on	the way	to one or more addresses; ezmlm-return
	      will parse the bounce to figure out the addresses.

       local-return-warn-cookie-box=domain
	      Warning bounce.  A warning message from ezmlm-warn bounced.

       local-return-probe-cookie-box=domain
	      Probe bounce.  A probe from  ezmlm-warn  bounced.	  ezmlm-return
	      will remove box@domain from the mailing list.

       local-return-receipt-cookie-fImsg-
	      A	 receipt  from	the  list.  This is logged. For	SQL supporting
	      lists, cookie is verified	and receipt logged only	if the	cookie
	      is  correct.  The	arrival	of the receipt shows that qmail	at the
	      sending host is running.

	      For all the above	addresses if, local is	followed  by  -digest,
	      bounces  are  assumed to be from the digest list,	and are	stored
	      in dir/digest/bounce rather than in dir /bounce .
