NAME
       fastforward - forward mail according to a cdb database

SYNOPSIS
       in .qmail-default: | fastforward	[ -nNpPdD ] cdb

DESCRIPTION
       fastforward forwards each incoming message according to instructions in
       cdb created by setforward.

       If there	is no forwarding instruction in	cdb for	the incoming recipient
       address,	fastforward will bounce	the message.

       You  can	 override .qmail-default with a	specific .qmail-recipient; see
       dot-qmail(5).

       Warning to system administrators: Messages do not reach	~alias/.qmail-
       default	unless	they  are  controlled  by  the alias user.  See	qmail-
       getpw(8).

       SECURITY	WARNING: If cdb	includes instructions pointing	to  a  mailing
       list owned by another user, that	user gains some	amount of control over
       fastforward's behavior.	In particular, he  can	force  fastforward  to
       open  any file that you can access, and to read any world-readable file
       that you	own, even if the file is in a world-inaccessible directory.

OPTIONS
       -n   No delivery.  fastforward will print a description of its actions,
	    but	will not actually read or forward a message.

       -N   (Default.)	Forward	a message as usual.

       -p   Pass  through.  If fastforward does	not find the recipient in cdb,
	    it exits 0,	giving the message to further commands	in  .qmail-de-
	    fault.   If	 fastforward finds the recipient, it forwards the mes-
	    sage and exits 99, so that further commands	are skipped.

       -P   (Default.)	Do not pass through.  If fastforward finds the recipi-
	    ent,  it  forwards	the message and	exits 0.  Otherwise it bounces
	    the	message.

       -d   Use	$DEFAULT@$HOST as the recipient	address, or $EXT@$HOST if $DE-
	    FAULT is not set.

       -D   (Default.)	Use $RECIPIENT as the recipient	address.
