meillo@0 4 masqmail.conf \- masqmail configuration file
meillo@34 5
meillo@34 6
meillo@0 7 .SH DESCRIPTION
meillo@0 8
meillo@34 9 This man page describes the syntax of the main configuration file of masqmail.
meillo@34 10 Its usual location is \fI/etc/masqmail/masqmail.conf\fR
meillo@0 11
meillo@0 12 The configuration consists of lines of the form
meillo@0 13
meillo@34 14 \fBval\fR = \fIexpression\fR
meillo@0 15
meillo@34 16 Where \fBval\fR is a variable name and \fIexpression\fR a string,
meillo@34 17 which can be quoted with double quotes `"'.
meillo@34 18 If the expression is on multiple lines or contains characters other than letters,
meillo@155 19 digits or the characters `.', `-', `_', `/', ';', '@', ':', it must be quoted.
meillo@34 20 You can use quotes inside quotes by escaping them with a backslash.
meillo@0 21
meillo@155 22 Each \fBval\fP has a type, which can be boolean, numeric, string or list.
meillo@34 23 A boolean variable can be set with one of the values `on', `yes', and `true' or `off', `no' and `false'.
meillo@34 24 List items are separated with semicolons `;'.
meillo@155 25 For some values, patterns (like `*',`?') can be used.
meillo@155 26 The spaces in front of and after the equal sign `=' are optional.
meillo@0 27
meillo@34 28 Most lists (exceptions: \fBlocal_hosts\fR, \fBlocal_nets\fR, \fBlisten_addresses\fR,
meillo@139 29 \fBonline_routes\fR, and \fBonline_gets\fR) accept files.
meillo@34 30 These will be recognized by a leading slash `/'.
meillo@34 31 The contents of these files will be included at the position of the file name,
meillo@34 32 there can be items or other files before and after the file entry.
meillo@155 33 The format of the files is different though, within these files each entry is on another line
meillo@155 34 and the entries are not separated by semicolons.
meillo@34 35 This makes it easy to include large lists which are common in different configuration files,
meillo@34 36 so they do not have to appear in every configuration file.
meillo@0 37
meillo@34 38 Blank lines and lines starting with a hash `#' are ignored.
meillo@34 39
meillo@0 40
meillo@0 41 .SH OPTIONS
meillo@34 42
meillo@0 43 .TP
meillo@34 44 \fBrun_as_user = \fIboolean\fR
meillo@0 45
meillo@34 46 If this is set, masqmail runs with the user id of the user who invoked it and never changes it.
meillo@34 47 This is for debugging purposes only.
meillo@34 48 If the user is not root, masqmail will not be able to listen on a port < 1024
meillo@34 49 and will not be able to deliver local mail to others than the user.
meillo@0 50
meillo@0 51 .TP
meillo@34 52 \fBuse_syslog = \fIboolean\fR
meillo@0 53
meillo@34 54 If this is set, masqmail uses syslogd for logging.
meillo@34 55 It uses facility MAIL.
meillo@34 56 You still have to set \fBlog_dir\fR for debug files.
meillo@0 57
meillo@0 58 .TP
meillo@34 59 \fBdebug_level = \fIn\fR
meillo@0 60
meillo@34 61 Set the debug level.
meillo@34 62 Valid values are 0 to 6, increasing it further makes no difference.
meillo@34 63 Be careful if you set this as high as 5 or higher, the logs may very soon fill your hard drive.
meillo@0 64
meillo@0 65 .TP
meillo@44 66 \fBlog_dir = \fIfile\fR
meillo@44 67
meillo@155 68 The directory where logs are stored, if syslog is not used.
meillo@155 69 Debug files are always stored in this directory if debugging is enabled.
meillo@44 70 \fI/var/log/masqmail\fR is a common value.
meillo@44 71 \fIfile\fR must be an absolute path.
meillo@44 72
meillo@44 73 .TP
meillo@34 74 \fBmail_dir = \fIfile\fR
meillo@0 75
meillo@34 76 The directory where local mail is stored, usually \fI/var/spool/mail\fR or \fI/var/mail\fR.
meillo@44 77 \fIfile\fR must be an absolute path.
meillo@0 78
meillo@0 79 .TP
meillo@34 80 \fBspool_dir = \fIfile\fR
meillo@0 81
meillo@34 82 The directory where masqmail stores its spool files (and later also other stuff).
meillo@34 83 It must have a subdirectory \fIinput\fR.
meillo@34 84 Masqmail needs read and write permissions for this directory.
meillo@34 85 I suggest to use \fI/var/spool/masqmail\fR.
meillo@44 86 \fIfile\fR must be an absolute path.
meillo@0 87
meillo@0 88 .TP
meillo@133 89 \fBlock_dir = \fIfile\fR
meillo@133 90
meillo@133 91 The directory where masqmail stores its lock files.
meillo@133 92 Masqmail needs read and write permissions for this directory.
meillo@133 93 By default it is a directory ``lock'' inside of \fIspool_dir\fP.
meillo@133 94 \fIfile\fR must be an absolute path.
meillo@133 95
meillo@133 96 .TP
meillo@34 97 \fBhost_name = \fIstring\fR
meillo@0 98
meillo@34 99 This is used in different places: Masqmail identifies itself in the greeting banner
meillo@34 100 on incoming connections and in the HELO/EHLO command for outgoing connections with this name,
meillo@34 101 it is used in the Received: header and to qualify the sender of a locally originating message.
meillo@0 102
meillo@34 103 If the string begins with a slash `/', it it assumed that it is a filename,
meillo@34 104 and the first line of this file will be used.
meillo@34 105 Usually this will be `/etc/mailname' to make masqmail conform to Debian policies.
meillo@0 106
meillo@34 107 It is not used to find whether an address is local. Use \fBlocal_hosts\fR for that.
meillo@0 108
meillo@0 109 .TP
meillo@34 110 \fBremote_port = \fIn\fR
meillo@0 111
meillo@0 112 The remote port number to be used. This defaults to port 25.
meillo@0 113
meillo@34 114 This option is deprecated.
meillo@34 115 Use \fBhost_name\fR in the route configuration instead.
meillo@34 116 See \fBmasqmail.route(5)\fR.
meillo@34 117
meillo@0 118 .TP
meillo@34 119 \fBlocal_hosts = \fIlist\fR
meillo@0 120
meillo@34 121 A semicolon `;' separated list of hostnames which are considered local.
meillo@34 122 Normally you set it to "localhost;foo;" if your host has the
meillo@34 123 fully qualified domain name `'.
meillo@0 124
meillo@0 125 .TP
meillo@34 126 \fBlocal_nets = \fIlist\fR
meillo@0 127
meillo@34 128 A semicolon `;' separated list of hostnames which are on the `local' net.
meillo@34 129 Delivery to these hosts is attempted immediately.
meillo@34 130 You can use patterns with `*', e.g. "*".
meillo@0 131
meillo@0 132 .TP
meillo@34 133 \fBlocal_addresses = \fIlist\fR
meillo@0 134
meillo@34 135 A semicolon `;' separated list of fully qualified email-addresses which are
meillo@34 136 considered local although their domain name part is not in the list of \fBlocal_hosts\fR.
meillo@0 137
meillo@34 138 For example: There are two people working at your LAN: person1@yourdomain and person2@yourdomain.
meillo@34 139 But there are other persons @yourdomain which are NOT local.
meillo@34 140 So you can not put yourdomain to the list of local_hosts.
meillo@34 141 If person1 now wants to write to person2@yourdomain and this mail should not leave the LAN then you can put
meillo@0 142
meillo@0 143 local_addresses = "person1@yourdomain;person2@yourdomain"
meillo@0 144
meillo@0 145 to your masqmail.conf.
meillo@34 146
meillo@0 147 .TP
meillo@34 148 \fBnot_local_addresses = \fIlist\fR
meillo@0 149
meillo@34 150 A semicolon `;' separated list of fully qualified email-addresses which are
meillo@34 151 considered not local although their domain name part is in the list of \fBlocal_hosts\fR.
meillo@0 152
meillo@34 153 This is the opposite of the previous case.
meillo@34 154 The majority of addresses of a specific domain are local.
meillo@34 155 But some users are not.
meillo@34 156 With this option you can easily exclude these users.
meillo@0 157
meillo@0 158 Example:
meillo@0 159
meillo@0 160 local_hosts = "localhost;myhost;"
meillo@0 161
meillo@0 162 not_local_addresses = ""
meillo@34 163
meillo@0 164 .TP
meillo@34 165 \fBlisten_addresses = \fIlist\fR
meillo@0 166
meillo@34 167 A semicolon `;' separated list of interfaces on which connections will be accepted.
meillo@34 168 An interface ist defined by a hostname, optionally followed by a colon `:' and a number for the port.
meillo@34 169 If this is left out, port 25 will be used.
meillo@0 170
meillo@34 171 You can set this to "localhost:25;foo:25" if your hostname is `foo'.
meillo@0 172
meillo@34 173 Note that the names are resolved to IP addreses.
meillo@34 174 If your host has different names which resolve to the same IP,
meillo@34 175 use only one of them, otherwise you will get an error message.
meillo@0 176
meillo@0 177 .TP
meillo@34 178 \fBdo_save_envelope_to = \fIboolean\fR
meillo@0 179
meillo@34 180 If this is set to true, a possibly existing Envelope-to: header in an incoming mail
meillo@34 181 which is received via either pop3 or smtp will be saved as an X-Orig-Envelope-to: header.
meillo@0 182
meillo@34 183 This is useful if you retrieve mail from a pop3 server with either masqmail or fetchmail,
meillo@34 184 and the server supports Envelope-to: headers,
meillo@34 185 and you want to make use of those with a mail filtering tool, e.g. procmail.
meillo@34 186 It cannot be preserved because masqmail sets such a header by itself.
meillo@0 187
meillo@0 188 Default is false.
meillo@34 189
meillo@0 190 .TP
meillo@34 191 \fBdo_relay = \fIboolean\fR
meillo@0 192
meillo@34 193 If this is set to false, mail with a return path that is not local and a destination
meillo@34 194 that is also not local will not be accepted via smtp and a 550 reply will be given.
meillo@34 195 Default is true.
meillo@0 196
meillo@34 197 Note that this will not protect you from spammers using open relays,
meillo@34 198 but from users unable to set their address in their mail clients.
meillo@0 199
meillo@0 200 .TP
meillo@34 201 \fBdo_queue = \fIboolean\fR
meillo@0 202
meillo@34 203 If this is set, mail will not be delivered immediately when accepted.
meillo@34 204 Same as calling masqmail with the \fB\-odq\fR option.
meillo@0 205
meillo@0 206 .TP
meillo@34 207 \fBonline_routes.\fIname\fR = \fIlist\fR
meillo@0 208
meillo@34 209 Replace \fIname\fR with a name to identify a connection.
meillo@34 210 Set this to a filename (or a list of filenames) for the special route configuration for that connection.
meillo@34 211 You will use that name to call masqmail with the \fB\-qo\fR option every time a
meillo@34 212 connection to your ISP is set up.
meillo@0 213
meillo@34 214 Example: Your ISP has the name FastNet.
meillo@34 215 Then you write the following line in the main configuration:
meillo@0 216
meillo@139 217 \fBonline_routes.FastNet\fR = \fI"/etc/masqmail/fastnet.route"\fR
meillo@0 218
meillo@34 219 \fI/etc/masqmail/fastnet.route\fR is the route configuration file, see \fBmasqmail.route(5)\fR.
meillo@34 220 As soon as a link to FastNet has been set up, you call masqmail \fB\-qo \fIFastNet\fR.
meillo@34 221 Masqmail will then read the specified file and send the mails.
meillo@0 222
meillo@0 223 .TP
meillo@34 224 \fBconnect_route.\fIname\fR = \fIlist\fR
meillo@0 225
meillo@34 226 Old name for \fBonline_routes\fR.
meillo@0 227
meillo@0 228 .TP
meillo@34 229 \fBlocal_net_route = \fIfile\fR
meillo@0 230
meillo@34 231 This is similar to \fBonline_routes.\fIname\fR but for the local net.
meillo@34 232 Recipient addresses that are in local_nets will be routed using this route configuration.
meillo@34 233 Main purpose is to define a mail server with mail_host in your local network.
meillo@34 234 In simple environments this can be left unset.
meillo@34 235 If unset, a default route configuration will be used.
meillo@0 236
meillo@0 237 .TP
meillo@34 238 \fBalias_file = \fIfile\fR
meillo@0 239
meillo@34 240 Set this to the location of your alias file.
meillo@34 241 If unset, no aliasing will be done.
meillo@0 242
meillo@0 243 .TP
meillo@34 244 \fBalias_local_caseless = \fIboolean\fR
meillo@0 245
meillo@0 246 If this is set, local parts in the alias file will be matched disregarding upper/lower case.
meillo@34 247
meillo@0 248 .TP
meillo@34 249 \fBpipe_fromline = \fIboolean\fR
meillo@0 250
meillo@34 251 If this is set, a from line will be prepended to the output stream whenever
meillo@34 252 a pipe command is called after an alias expansion.
meillo@34 253 Default is false.
meillo@0 254
meillo@0 255 .TP
meillo@34 256 \fBpipe_fromhack = \fIboolean\fR
meillo@0 257
meillo@34 258 If this is set, each line beginning with `From ' is replaced with `>From '
meillo@34 259 whenever a pipe command is called after an alias expansion.
meillo@34 260 You probably want this if you have set \fBpipe_fromline\fR above.
meillo@34 261 Default is false.
meillo@0 262
meillo@0 263 .TP
meillo@34 264 \fBmbox_default = \fIstring\fR
meillo@0 265
meillo@34 266 The default local delivery method.
meillo@34 267 Can be one of mbox, mda or maildir (the latter only if maildir support is enabled at compile time).
meillo@34 268 Default is mbox.
meillo@34 269 You can override this for each user by using the \fBmbox_users\fR, \fBmda_users\fR,
meillo@34 270 or \fBmaildir_users\fR options (see below).
meillo@0 271
meillo@0 272 .TP
meillo@34 273 \fBmbox_users = \fIlist\fR
meillo@0 274
meillo@0 275 A list of users which wish delivery to an mbox style mail folder.
meillo@34 276
meillo@0 277 .TP
meillo@34 278 \fBmda_users = \fIlist\fR
meillo@0 279
meillo@34 280 A list of users which wish local delivery to an mda.
meillo@34 281 You have to set \fBmda\fR (see below) as well.
meillo@0 282
meillo@0 283 .TP
meillo@34 284 \fBmaildir_users = \fIlist\fR
meillo@0 285
meillo@34 286 A list of users which wish delivery to a qmail style maildir.
meillo@34 287 The path to maildir is ~/Maildir/.
meillo@34 288 The maildir will be created if it does not exist.
meillo@0 289
meillo@0 290 .TP
meillo@34 291 \fBmda = \fIexpand string\fR
meillo@0 292
meillo@34 293 If you want local delivery to be transferred to an mda (Mail Delivery Agent),
meillo@34 294 set this to a command.
meillo@34 295 The argument will be expanded on delivery time,
meillo@34 296 you can use variables beginning with a dolloar sign `$', optionally enclosed in curly braces.
meillo@34 297 Variables you can use are:
meillo@0 298
meillo@34 299 uid - the unique message id.
meillo@34 300 This is not necessarily identical with the Message ID as given in the Message ID: header.
meillo@0 301
meillo@0 302 received_host - the host the mail was received from
meillo@0 303
meillo@34 304 ident - the ident, this is either the ident delivered by the ident protocol
meillo@34 305 or the user id of the sender if the message was received locally.
meillo@0 306
meillo@0 307 return_path_local - the local part of the return path (sender).
meillo@0 308
meillo@0 309 return_path_domain - the domain part of the return path (sender).
meillo@0 310
meillo@0 311 return_path - the complete return path (sender).
meillo@0 312
meillo@0 313 rcpt_local - the local part of the recipient.
meillo@0 314
meillo@0 315 rcpt_domain - the domain part of the recipient.
meillo@0 316
meillo@0 317 rcpt - the complete recipient address.
meillo@0 318
meillo@0 319 Example:
meillo@0 320
meillo@16 321 mda="/usr/bin/procmail \-Y \-d ${rcpt_local}"
meillo@0 322
meillo@34 323 For the mda, as for pipe commands, a few environment variables will be set as well.
meillo@34 324 See \fBmasqmail(8)\fR.
meillo@34 325 To use environment variables for the mda, the dollar sign `$' has to be escaped with a backslash,
meillo@34 326 otherwise they will be tried to be expanded with the internal variables.
meillo@34 327
meillo@0 328 .TP
meillo@34 329 \fBmda_fromline = \fIboolean\fR
meillo@0 330
meillo@34 331 If this is set, a from line will be prepended to the output stream whenever
meillo@34 332 a message is delivered to an mda.
meillo@34 333 Default is false.
meillo@0 334
meillo@0 335 .TP
meillo@34 336 \fBmda_fromhack = \fIboolean\fR
meillo@0 337
meillo@34 338 If this is set, each line beginning with `From ' is replaced with `>From '
meillo@34 339 whenever a message is delivered to an mda.
meillo@34 340 You probably want this if you have set \fBmda_fromline\fR above.
meillo@34 341 Default is false.
meillo@0 342
meillo@0 343 .TP
meillo@34 344 \fBonline_detect = \fIstring\fR
meillo@0 345
meillo@34 346 Defines the method masqmail uses to detect whether there is currently an online connection.
meillo@112 347 It can have the values \fIfile\fR, \fIpipe\fR, or \fImserver\fR.
meillo@0 348
meillo@112 349 When it is set to \fIfile\fR, masqmail first checks for the existence of \fBonline_file\fR
meillo@34 350 (see below) and if it exists, it reads it.
meillo@34 351 The content of the file should be the name of the current connection as defined
meillo@34 352 with \fBconnect_route.\fIname\fR (trailing whitespace is removed).
meillo@0 353
meillo@112 354 When it is set to \fIpipe\fR, masqmail calls the executable given by the
meillo@34 355 \fBonline_pipe\fR option (see below) and reads the current online status from its standard output.
meillo@0 356
meillo@112 357 When it is set to \fImserver\fR, masqmail connects to the masqdialer server
meillo@34 358 using the value of \fBmserver_iface\fR and asks it whether a connection exists and for the name,
meillo@34 359 which should be the name of the current connection as defined with \fBconnect_route.\fIname\fR.
meillo@92 360 \fBThe mserver detection method is OBSOLETE.\fR
meillo@92 361 See mserver_iface for a note on how to replace it.
meillo@0 362
meillo@34 363 No matter how masqmail detects the online status,
meillo@34 364 only messages that are accepted at online time will be delivered using the connection.
meillo@34 365 The spool still has to be emptied with masqmail \fB\-qo\fIconnection\fR.
meillo@0 366
meillo@0 367 .TP
meillo@34 368 \fBonline_file = \fIfile\fR
meillo@0 369
meillo@34 370 This is the name of the file checked for when masqmail determines whether it is online.
meillo@34 371 The file should only exist when there is currently a connection.
meillo@34 372 Create it in your ip-up script with e.g.
meillo@0 373
meillo@92 374 echo "connection-name" >/var/run/masqmail/masqmail-route
meillo@0 375
meillo@37 376 chmod 0644 /var/run/masqmail/masqmail-route
meillo@0 377
meillo@0 378 Do not forget to delete it in your ip-down script.
meillo@34 379
meillo@0 380 .TP
meillo@34 381 \fBonline_pipe = \fIfile\fR
meillo@0 382
meillo@34 383 This is the name of the executable which will be called to determine the online status.
meillo@34 384 This executable should just print the name of the current connection to
meillo@34 385 the standard output and return a zero status code.
meillo@34 386 masqmail assumes it is offline if the script returns with a non zero status.
meillo@34 387 Simple example:
meillo@0 388
meillo@0 389 #!/bin/sh
meillo@0 390
meillo@37 391 [ \-e /var/run/masqmail/masqmail-route ] || exit 1
meillo@0 392
meillo@37 393 cat /var/run/masqmail/masqmail-route
meillo@0 394
meillo@0 395 exit 0
meillo@0 396
meillo@129 397 Of course, instead of the example above you could as well use \fIfile\fR as
meillo@34 398 the online detection method, but you can do something more sophisticated.
meillo@34 399
meillo@0 400 .TP
meillo@34 401 \fBmserver_iface = \fIinterface\fR
meillo@0 402
meillo@92 403 \fBThis option is OBSOLETE\fP, use
meillo@92 404
meillo@92 405 online_method=pipe
meillo@92 406
meillo@92 407 online_pipe="/usr/bin/mservdetect localhost 222"
meillo@92 408
meillo@92 409 instead.
meillo@92 410
meillo@34 411 The interface the masqdialer server is listening to.
meillo@34 412 Usually this will be "localhost:224" if mserver is running on the same host as masqmail.
meillo@34 413 But using this option, you can also let masqmail run on another host by setting
meillo@34 414 \fBmserver_iface\fR to another hostname, e.g. "foo:224".

meillo@34 461 (starting with the receiving time of the message) shall be generated.
meillo@0 462
meillo@34 463 A warning will only be generated just after an attempt to deliver the mail
meillo@34 464 and if that attempt failed temporarily.
meillo@34 465 So a warning may be generated after a longer time, if there was no attempt before.

meillo@0 475
meillo@34 476 The excedence of this time will only be noticed if the message was actually tried to be delivered.
meillo@34 477 If, for example, the message can only be delivered when online,
meillo@34 478 but you have not been online for that time, no bounce will be generated.
