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

NAME
       qconfirm-return - handles bounces from qconfirm-check(1)

SYNOPSIS
       in .qmail:
	      |qconfirm-return [-n limit] [dir]

DESCRIPTION
       qconfirm-return expects QSBMF (qmail-send bounce	message	format)	bounce
       messages	and processes them. It tries to	extract	the recipient  address
       that  caused  the  bounce from the failure paragraph and	the unique key
       that qconfirm-check(8) has created for delivery confirmation  for  mes-
       sages  from  this address from the original message (the	included qcon-
       firm-check(8)'s confirmation request message).

       If qconfirm-return fails	to do so, or the key in	the  original  message
       does  not match the key qconfirm-check(8) has created for this address,
       or the envelope sender is not empty, it prints a	warning	and exits 0.

       Otherwise qconfirm-return notices that this address bounces.  If	 qcon-
       firm-return sees	that this address already has bounced before, it tells
       qconfirm-check(8) to silently drop the message from this	sender address
       the next	time qmail tries to deliver it (exception: see the -n option).

       If qconfirm-return was able to successfully parse and notice the	bounce
       message,	it exits 99, and so tells qmail-local(8) to ignore all further
       delivery	instructions.

       qconfirm-return exits 111 on error.

OPTIONS
       -n limit
	      Limit.  limit must be an integer;	if this	option is given, qcon-
	      firm-return notices addresses that bounce	limit more  times  be-
	      fore telling qconfirm-check(8) to	silently drop the message from
	      the sender address. Default is 0.

       dir    qconfirm directory.  qconfirm-return uses	the qconfirm directory
	      dir  for	checking  pending  addresses and noticing bouncing ad-
	      dresses. Default is .qconfirm.
