SYMPA_MSG(8)			 sympa 6.2.56			  SYMPA_MSG(8)

NAME
       sympa_msg, sympa_msg.pl - Daemon	to handle incoming messages

SYNOPSIS
       "sympa_msg.pl" [	"-d", "--debug"	]
       [ "-f", "--file"=another.sympa.conf ] [ "-k", "--keepcopy"=directory ]
       [ "-l", "--lang"=lang ] [ "-m", "--mail"	] [ "-h", "--help" ]
       [ "-v", "--version" ]

DESCRIPTION
       Sympa_msg.pl is a program which scans permanently the incoming message
       spool and processes each	message.

       Messages	bound for the lists and	authorized sending are modified	as
       necessity and at	last stored into digest	spool, archive spool and
       outgoing	spool.	Those bound for	command	addresses are interpreted and
       appropriate actions are taken.  Those bound for listmasters or list
       admins are forwarded to them.

OPTIONS
       Sympa_msg.pl follows the	usual GNU command line syntax, with long
       options starting	with two dashes	("--").	 A summary of options is
       included	below.

       "-d", "--debug"
	   Enable debug	mode.

       "-f", "--config="file
	   Force Sympa to use an alternative configuration file	instead	of
	   /usr/local/etc/sympa/sympa.conf.

       "-l", "--lang="lang
	   Set this option to use a language for Sympa.	The corresponding
	   gettext catalog file	must be	located	in $LOCALEDIR directory.

       "--log_level="level
	   Sets	Sympa log level.

       sympa_msg.pl may	run in daemon mode with	following options.

       "--foreground"
	   The process remains attached	to the TTY.

       "-k", "--keepcopy="directory
	   This	option tells Sympa to keep a copy of every incoming message,
	   instead of deleting them. `directory' is the	directory to store
	   messages.

       "-m", "--mail"
	   Sympa will log calls	to sendmail, including recipients. This	option
	   is useful for keeping track of each mail sent (log files may	grow
	   faster though).

       "--service="service
	   Note: This option was deprecated.

	   Process is dedicated	to messages distribution ("process_message"),
	   commands ("process_command")	or to automatic	lists creation
	   ("process_creation",	default	three of them).

       With following options sympa_msg.pl will	print some information and
       exit.

       "-h", "--help"
	   Print this help message.

       "-v", "--version"
	   Print the version number.
