mail2sms(5)		      File Formats Manual		   mail2sms(5)

NAME
       mail2sms	- reads	a (MIME) mail and converts it to a short message.

SYNOPSIS
       /usr/local/etc/mail2sms.conf
       ~/.mail2sms

DESCRIPTION
       mail2sms	 offers	 search	 and  replace,	conditional rules, conditional
       search and replace etc to create	a custom  output.  It  can  optionally
       pipe its	output into a specified	program.

       All this	is controlled with the config file, which this man page	intend
       to describe.

       The config file contains	a series of control commands.  Each entry  has
       the form:

	      keyword	[ : value ]

       keyword		   This	 is the	command	that sets or control a certain
			   item	or the flow of the config file	starting  from
			   here.

       value		   This	 parameter depends on the command. It may also
			   be left out depending on the	command.

       Values are either written plainly and whitespaces left and right	of the
       words  are  cut off, or within quotes (").  If the value	is quoted, you
       must escape quotes to be	able to	have them in the string, as in:	 "  \"
       ".

       Fields should be	separated by any number	of SPACE and/or	TAB characters
       and a colon (:).

       The available commands are of a few different kinds, and	therefore this
       description  has	a few different	sections that describe the commands in
       each section.

       A `#' (number sign) indicates the beginning of a	comment; characters up
       to the end of the line are not interpreted by routines which parses the
       file.

       Basically, there	are two	kinds of keywords. The first is	the  one  read
       and dealt with in real-time when	read, they may also build strings that
       define output format, command to	run etc.. The other type is  the  key-
       words  that  build  a tree of regular expressions with accompanying ac-
       tions. It is important to understand the	difference.

General	Keywords
       Left to write. See the README for now.

FILES
       /etc/aliases	   Takes care of sendmail aliases and is a good	 place
			   to automatically run	mail2sms from.
