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

NAME
       ezmlm-store  - store messages posted to a moderated lists and send mod-
       eration requests	to the moderator(s).

SYNOPSIS
       ezmlm-store [-bBcCmMpPrRsSvVyY] dir

DESCRIPTION
       ezmlm-store stores a main message sent to a ezmlm mailing list awaiting
       message moderation or user confirmation.

       If the -y option	is set,	or dir/confirmpost exists and the -Y option is
       not set,	it works in user confirmation mode.  Otherwise if  dir/modpost
       exists,	it works in message moderation mode.  Otherwise	the message is
       passed on to ezmlm-send(1).

       If either dir/modpostonly exists	or the -P option is set, only  modera-
       tors will be allowed to post.  Posts from other addresses are bounced.

USER CONFIRMATION
       ezmlm-store reads a mail	message	and stores it in dir/mod/unconfirmed/.
       ezmlm-store also	sends a	user confirmation request with a copy  of  the
       message to the envelope sender of the message.  The confirm request in-
       cludes cookies for message rejection and	acceptance.

       The sender can take either action by replying to	 the  appropriate  ad-
       dress.  For user	convenience, the confirm address is given in the ``Re-
       ply-To:'' header.

       Once the	confirmation request has been successfully  sent,  ezmlm-store
       sets  the  owner-execute	 bit  of  the message in dir/mod/unconfirmed/.
       Messages	without	this bit set are the result of	incomplete  executions
       of ezmlm-store and are ignored.

MODERATION
       ezmlm-store  reads  a  mail  message and	stores it in dir/mod/pending/.
       ezmlm-store also	sends a	moderation request with	a copy of the  message
       to  the list of moderators stored in dir/mod/subscribers/.  If dir/mod-
       post contains a directory name, moddir, with a leading  forward	slash,
       the moderator list in /moddir/subscribers/ is used instead. This	allows
       separate	sets of	moderators for subscription and	message	moderation, as
       well  as	 the  use of the same moderator	list for several ezmlm mailing
       lists, owned by the same	user. If the -s	switch is used,	the moderators
       are  divided  into two sets. Those pointed to by	dir/modpost which will
       receive confirmation requests for posts with their SENDER address,  and
       those stored with the base directory dir/mod/ which will	receive	moder-
       ation requests for messages posted from SENDERs not part	of  the	 first
       group.  This can	be used	to have	a set of trusted users (``moderating''
       themselves to thwart SENDER faking), and	a set of more traditional mod-
       erators,	which receive approval requests	for other posts.

       Note:  The  contents  of	 dir/modpost do	not affect the location	of the
       message moderation queue.

       If SENDER is a moderator, the request is	sent to	that moderator only.

       The moderation request includes cookies for message rejection  and  ac-
       ceptance.   The moderator can take either action	by replying to the ap-
       propriate address.  For moderator convenience, the  accept  address  is
       given  in  the  ``Reply-To:''  header,  and  the	 reject	address	in the
       ``From:'' header.

       If the list is set up with remote administration	and the	sender is  not
       a  moderator, the ``Cc:'' header	will contain a confirmation address to
       add the sender to the ``allow'' database. This allows the moderator  to
       both  approve  the  post	 and  add  the	sender to the list of accepted
       posters by replying to ``all''.

       The default subject of all message moderation requests is MODERATE  for
       listname@host.	The  default  subject  of all message confirmation re-
       quests is Confirm post to listname@host.

       Once the	request	has been successfully sent to the  moderators,	ezmlm-
       store  sets  the	 owner-execute bit of the message in dir/mod/pending/.
       Messages	without	this bit set are the result of	incomplete  executions
       of ezmlm-store and are ignored.

CONFIRMATION AND MODERATION MESSAGES
       At  the beginning of the	message, ezmlm-store prints a new Mailing-List
       field with the contents of the TXT_MAILING_LIST	message.   It  rejects
       the message if there is already a Mailing-List field.

       ezmlm-store  does  not  distribute  bounce messages: if the environment
       variable	SENDER is set, and is either empty or  #@[],  ezmlm-store  re-
       jects the message.

       If  dir/qmqpservers  exists, ezmlm-store	will use qmail-qmqp(1) to send
       messages.

OPTIONS
       -b     (Default.)  With the moderation request, send both  headers  and
	      body of the message to be	moderated.

       -B     With  the	 moderation  request, send header, but not body	of the
	      message to be moderated.	This may be useful  if	moderation  is
	      used  to	allow one or a few poorly connected addresses to post,
	      and posts	are very large (e.g. when the list is used as  a  dis-
	      tribution	channel	of e.g.	catalogs).

       -cCrR  Passed  on  to  ezmlm-send(1)  in	case this program is executed.
	      This happens only	if neither dir/modpost nor dir/confirmpost ex-
	      ist.

       -m     (Default.)  The post is sent as a	MIME enclosure.

       -M     The post is appended to the message.

       -s     The  contents  of	dir/modpost with the default dir/mod/ are used
	      as the base directory for	self-approving users, whereas dir/mod/
	      is  used	as  the	 base directory	for the	moderators to whom ap-
	      proval requests for other	posts are sent.

       -S     (Default.)   The	contents  of  dir/modpost  with	 the   default
	      dir/mod/	are  used as the base directory	for the	moderators for
	      all moderator functions.

       -p     (Default.)  Anyone can post. Posts that are not from a moderator
	      are sent out to all moderators for approval. Posts that are from
	      a	moderator are sent only	to that	moderator. This	is the default
	      unless the dir/modpostonly file exists.

       -P     Only  moderators	can  post. Those posts are sent	to the posting
	      moderator	for approval. Posts from other addresses are  bounced.
	      This  can	 be used to relatively securely	restrict posts to mes-
	      sages originating	from a given set of addresses.

       -y     Run in post confirmation mode even if dir/confirmpost  does  not
	      exists.

       -Y     Ignore  dir/confirmpost.	 (This option is useful	if ezmlm-store
	      is called	after post confirmation, to allow message moderation.)

       -v     Display ezmlm-store version information.

       -V     Display ezmlm-store version information.

USAGE
       First of	all, remember that  ezmlm-store	 will  simply  execute	ezmlm-
       send(1) unless dir/modpost exists, dir/confirmpost exists, or -y	option
       is specified.  For the switches,	use -P for lists where only moderators
       can post	securely, i.e. they are	asked to approve their own posts after
       posting,	whereas	other SENDERs are rejected. For	low-security more con-
       venient versions	of this	type of	restriction, see ezmlm-gate(1).

       Normally	 (no  switches),  posts	 from moderators are sent for approval
       only to the sending moderator, whereas posts from other	addresses  are
       sent  to	 all moderators.  Thus,	you can	set up an announcement list by
       adding all potential posters as moderators. However, you	may also  want
       to  allow others	to post, as long as the	posts are approved. This would
       be default ezmlm-store function.

       To make the set of ``approved posters'' who approve  their  own	posts,
       different  from	the  set  of  addresses	 that approve posts from other
       users, use the -s switch. Add a directory name  to  dir/modpost.	  This
       directory  is  the base directory of the	``approved posters'' database.
       Add the moderators for other posts to dir/mod/ using ezmlm-sub(1).

CHARACTER SETS
       If dir/charset exists, ezmlm-store will use the	character  set	listed
       for all messages. Otherwise, the	default	``us-ascii'' will be used. The
       character set can be suffixed by	``:'' followed by a code. If the  code
       is  ``Q'', outgoing messages are	sent as	``Quoted-Printable'', if it is
       '`B'' they are sent ``base64'' encoded.	Otherwise, text	is sent	as is.
