mlmmj-receive - receive mails for an mlmmj managed mailinglist
mlmmj-receive -L /path/to/listdir [-h] [-V] [-P] [-F] -h: This help -F: Don't fork in the background (debugging only) -L: Full path to list directory -P: Don't execute mlmmj-process (debugging only) -V: Print version
The mlmmj-receive binary is the one specified in the mailserver config- uration file (aliases file), which writes the mail to the <list- dir>/incoming directory and invokes mlmmj-process unless the -P option is specified. On systems using mailservers supporting the /etc/aliases file, a line to activate an mlmmj managed mailinglist would look like this: list: "|/usr/bin/mlmmj-receive -L /var/spool/mlmmj/list/" It's very important to specify the full path to the binary, or the mailinglist will not function. When the -F option is used, it will not fork in the background. The reason it forks is that if delivery of a mail takes longer time than the mail server will allow a command to be idle before presumed dead, the mail server would kill it.
