NAME

       hmrc - Hypermail configuration file

DESCRIPTION

       Hypermail  can  use  a configuration file to allow you to customize the
       individual aspects of a list.  In past versions  of  hypermail  it  was
       necessary  for  all  hmrc  variables  to begin with ’hm_’.  While still
       supported, it is not necessary to use the ’hm_’ prefix any  longer  and
       this  document  reflects  that.  [This  page  is  out  of date. See the
       hmrc.html file for complete and up to date info.]
(#) are considered comments and are ignored.  The format of the "options" need
to be in lowercase and separated with an equals (=) sign, such as:

       option = value
       mbox = /home/john/my_mailbox
       filemode = 0600
specified,  Hypermail  will  use the one specified as CONFIGFILE in options.h.

CONFIGURATION OPTIONS

       Below is a list of variables that Hypermail understands.

       Boolean numbers can have the value of 0 or 1.

       htmlsuffix = suffix
              Use  this  to  specify  the  html  file  suffix  to be used when
              Hypermail generates the html files.  This is dependent on  local
              needs.   Do  not  put  a  ’.’  in the value.  It would result in
              "file..html", probably not what you want.

       language = two letter language specification
              This is a two-letter string specifying the default  language  to
              use,  or  a longer string specifying a language and locale.  Set
              this the value of the  language  table  you  wish  to  use  when
              running and generating archives.

          Current supported languages:

                de - German
                en - English
                es - Spanish
                fi - Finnish
                fr - French
                gr - Greek
                el - Greek
                is - Icelandic
                no - Norwegian
                pl - Polish
                ru - Russian
                sv - Swedish

          The directory /usr/share/i18n/locales on many systems has the locale
          codes that are available on that system.

       uselock = boolean_number
              Controls whether to use hypermail’s built-in locking  mechanism.
              By default, this option is set to 1.  Set it to 0 if you have an
              external  locking  mechanism,  like,  for  example,  when  using
              procmail or smartlist.

       locktime = number-of-seconds
              Set  this to the number of seconds that a lock should be honored
              when processing inbound messages.  Defaults to 3600 seconds.

       usemeta = boolean_number
              This option allows you to use metadata to store the content type
              of  a  MIME  attachment  and, later on,  when a user browses the
              attachment, send back this information in the HTTP  Content-Type
              header.   When  set  to  1,  the  Content-Type header of  a MIME
              attachment will be stored in a metadata file.  Let us  say  that
              the  MIME attachments for a message are stored in directory att-
              num.  The metadata for those attachments will then be stored  in
              directory att-num/.meta.  If a MIME attachment is stored in file
              att-file, its metadata will be  stored  in  file  att-file.meta.
              This  convention  is  directly compatible with the Apache server
              handling of metada.

       mbox = filename
              This is the mailbox to read messages in from.  Set this  with  a
              value of NONE to read from standard input.

       ietf_mbox = boolean_number
              Setting  this variable to 1 will tell hypermail that the mbox is
              formatted according to the  IETF  mbox  convention:  all  lines,
              except for the envelope, are prefixed with a > char.

       archives = URL
              This  will  create  a  link  in the archived index pages labeled
              Other mail archives to the specified URL.  Set this to  NONE  to
              omit such a link.

       custom_archives = HTML text
              If  this variable is defined, a navigation entry will be created
              below the sorted_by_x list  entry,  with  the  text  Other  mail
              archives: followed by the value of this variable. Set it to NONE
              to ommit such an entry.

       about = URL
              This will create a link in  the  archived  index  pages  labeled
              About  this  archive  to the specified URL.  Set this to NONE to
              omit such a link.

       indextable = boolean_number
              Setting this variable to 1 will tell Hypermail  to  generate  an
              message index Subject/Author/Date listings using a table format.
              Set to 0 if you want the standard Hypermail index page look  and
              feel.

       usetable = boolean_number
              Setting  this  variable  to 1 will tell Hypermail to generate an
              index menu at the top and bottom of each page in a table format.
              Set  to 0 if you want the standard Hypermail page look and feel.

       reverse = boolean_number
              Setting this variable to 1 will reverse-sort the article entries
              in  the  date  and  thread  index  files  by  the date they were
              received.  That is, the most recent messages will appear at  the
              top of the index rather than the other way around.

       showheaders = boolean_number
              Set  this  to 1 to show the article header lines in the archived
              HTML files.  These lines typically include the To: , From: , and
              Subject: information found in most email messages.

       showhtml = [ 0 | 1 | 2 ]
              Set  this  to  1 to show the articles in a proportionally-spaced
              font rather than a fixed-width (monospace) font.  Set this to  2
              for   more  complex  conversion  to  html  similar  to  that  in
              txt2html.pl.  Showhtml = 2 will normally produce  nicer  looking
              results  than  showhtml  =  1, and showhtml = 0 will look pretty
              dull, but 1 and 2  run  risks  of  altering  the  appearance  in
              undesired ways.

       showbr = boolean_number
              Set  this  to  1 to place <br> tags at the end of article lines.
              Otherwise, all non-quoted article lines will  word  wrap.   This
              only takes effect if showhtml is enabled.

       iquotes = boolean_number
              Set this to 1 to italicize quoted lines.

       showhr = boolean_number
              Set  this  to  1  to  place  horizontal  rules  before and after
              articles.

       show_msg_links = boolean_number
              Set this to 1 to put the individual message links at the top  of
              the  individual  message  pages.  Set this to 0 to produce pages
              without the Next, Previous, Reply, In-Reply-To, etc.  links.

       eurodate = boolean_number
              Set this to 1 to display article received dates with days before
              months instead of months before days.

       showreplies = boolean_number
              Set  this  to  1  to  show  all replies to a message as links in
              article files.

       discard_dup_msgids = boolean_number
              Set this to 0 to accept messages with a Message-ID matching that
              of  a message already in this archive.  By default such messages
              are discarded.

       require_msgids = boolean_number
              Set this to 0 to accept messages without  a  Message-ID  header.
              Set  this  to 1 to discard messages without a Message-ID header.
              By default such messages are discarded.

       spamprotect = boolean_number
              Set this to 1 to make hypermail not output real email  addresses
              in  the  output  HTML,  but instead obfuscate them a little.  By
              default email addresses are not obfuscated.

       antispam_at = string
              Set this to 1 make hypermail use something like  "_at_"  instead
              of the RFC 2822 @ address separator.

       attachmentsindex = boolean_number
              Set  this to 0 to make hypermail not output an index of articles
              with attachments.  By default hypermail outputs this index.

       dateformat = strftime date format
              Format used in  strftime(3)  call  for  displaying  dates.   See
              strftime(3) for the valid conversion specifications.

       stripsubject = string
              A  string to be stripped from all subject lines. Helps unclutter
              mailing lists which add tags to subject lines.

       mailto = address
              The address of the contact point that is put in the HTML  header
              line
                 <LINK REV=made HREF=mailto:MAILTO>
              Setting this to NONE disables <LINK...> header generation.

       mailcommand = command
              This  specifies  the  mail  command to use when converting email
              addresses to links.  The variables $TO, $SUBJECT, and $ID can be
              used in constructing the command string.

          $TO represents the address to send mail to,

          $SUBJECT represents the subject that is being replied to, and

          $ID  represents  the message ID of the article that is being replied
          to.

          If defined as NONE , email addresses will not be converted to  links
          in    articles.     A    possible   command   one   could   use   is
          mailto:$TO?subject=$SUBJECT and the Subject: would  also  be  filled
          in.   This  can  be  changed  to specify a CGI program such as /cgi-
          bin/mail?to=$TO .  A CGI mail program is included  with  the  source
          which can be used for this purpose.

       domainaddr = domainname
              Set  this  to  the  domainname  you want added to a mail address
              appearing in the RFC822 field which lack a hostname.   When  the
              list  resides  on the same host as the user sending the message,
              it is  often  not  required  of  the  MTA  to  domain-ize  these
              addresses  for  delivery.  In such cases, Hypermail will add the
              DOMAINADDR to the email address.  If  defined  as  NONE  ,  this
              feature is turned off.

       label = label name
              Define this as the label to put in archives.

       dir = directory
              This is the directory that Hypermail will look for when creating
              and updating archives.  If defined as NONE  the  directory  will
              have the same name as the input mailbox.

          Using  date  substitution cookies, you can tell Hypermail to archive
          messages in directories by the date they were received.

          Substitution cookies supported

              %d - two digit day of month (1-28/30/31)
              %D - three letter day of the week
              %m - two digit month of year (1-12)
              %M - three letter month of year (Jan, ..., Dec)
              %y - four digit year (1990,..2001)

          For example, if you wished to have Hypermail archive files  by  year
          and month, you might use

                    dir = /lists/somelist/%y/%M

          When  a  message  was  processed  it  would  be put into a directory
          /lists/somelist/1998/Jun (if the message is  processed  in  June  of
          1998).   If  the  message arrives and there is no storage directory,
          Hypermail will automatically create it and store the message in  the
          new directory.
           Note  that the date that Hypermail was run will be used, not a date
          from the message (use the folder_by_date option  to  have  Hypermail
          use dates from messages).

       attachmentlink = attachment link format

          Substitution cookies supported:

              %p for the full path to the attachment
              %f for the file name part only
              %d for the directory name only
              %n for the message number
              %c for the content type string

       dirmode = octal_number
              This  is  an  octal number representing the permissions that new
              directories are set to when they are created.  If  the  archives
              will  be  made  publically available, it’s a good idea to define
              this as 0755.

       filemode = octal_number
              This is an octal number representing the file  permissions  that
              new  files  are  set  to when they are created.  If the archives
              will be made publically available, it’s a good  idea  to  define
              this as 0644.

       overwrite = boolean_number
              Set this to 1 to make Hypermail overwrite existing archives.

       increment = boolean_number
              Set this to 1 to read one article only and append it to existing
              archives.

       progress = [ 0 | 1 | 2 ]
              Set this to 1 or 2 to always show a progress report as Hypermail
              works.   With  a setting of 1, hypermail overwrites the progress
              information relating to attachment creation.  With a setting  of
              2,  attachment  creation information is listed individually with
              the number of the message the attachments relate  to.   This  is
              written to stdout.

       thrdlevels = number
              This  specifies  the  number  of thread levels to outline in the
              thread index.  For instance, if  thrdlevels  is  2,  replies  to
              messages  will  be  indented  once  in the index, but replies to
              replies, etc., will only be indented once as well.

       defaultindex = type
              This specifies the  default  index  that  users  can  view  when
              entering the archive.  Valid types are date, thread, author, and
              subject.

       avoid_indices = which_index_files_not_to_use
              This is a list of index files to not generate. Valid  types  are
              date, thread, author, and subject.

       ihtmlheaderfile = path
              Define path as the path to a template file containing valid HTML
              formatting statements that you wish to included at  the  top  of
              every  index page.  Hypermail will print this file as the header
              of the index so make sure it contains <HTML>, <HEAD>, <BODY> and
              other statements that suit your local customized needs.

       ihtmlfooterfile = path
              Define path as the path to a template file containing valid HTML
              formatting statements that you wish to included at the bottom of
              every index page.  Hypermail will print this file as the trailer
              of the index so make sure it contains at a minimum a </BODY> and
              </HTML> statement.

       mhtmlheaderfile = path
              Define path as the path to a template file containing valid HTML
              formatting statements that you wish to use at the top  of  every
              message  page.   Hypermail will print this file as the header of
              the message so make sure it contains <HTML>, <HEAD>, <BODY>  and
              other statements that suit your local customized needs.

       mhtmlfooterfile = path
              Define path as the path to a template file containing valid HTML
              formatting statements you wish to use at  the  bottom  of  every
              message  page.  Hypermail will print this file as the trailer of
              the message so make sure it contains at a minimum a </BODY>  and
              </HTML> statement.

       hmail = Mailing_List_Submission_Address
              Set  this  to the list’s submission address.  When enabled, this
              can be used to submit a new message to the list  served  by  the
              hypermail archive.  NONE means don’t use it.

       icss_url = URL
              This  will link an external stylesheet found at the given URL to
              the index files. This will happen thru a  LINK  element  in  the
              index  document’s HEAD.  By default this option is desactivated.

       mcss_url = URL
              This will link an external stylesheet found at the given URL  to
              the  message  files. This will happen thru a LINK element in the
              message  document’s   HEAD.    By   default   this   option   is
              desactivated.

       show_headers = list_of_RFC_Headers_to_display
              This  is  the  list of headers to be displayed if showheaders is
              set to 1 (TRUE).  They can be listed comma  or  space  separated
              all  on  a  single  line.   If it contains the special character
              ‘‘*’’ hypermail will display all header lines.

       readone = boolean_number
              Set this to 1 to specify there is only one message in the input.

       inlinehtml = boolean_number
              This  is  used to make text/html parts to get inlined within the
              mail messages.  If set to 0  ,  HTML-parts  will  be  stored  as
              separate files.

       readone = boolean number
              Set this to 1 to specify there is only one message in the input.

       text_types = MIME types to be treated as text/plain.
              This is a list of MIME types that you want  hypermail  to  treat
              exactly  as  if  they  were  text/plain.   This  can  be  listed
              individually on multiple lines or comma or space separated on  a
              single line.

       prefered_types = which alternative types to use
              When  mails using multipart/mixed types are scanned, this is the
              list of alternative MIME types that you want used.  This can  be
              listed   individually  on  multiple  lines  or  comma  or  space
              separated on a single line.  Note: Order is important.

       inline_types = which_image_types_should_be_inlined
              This is the list of MIME types that you want inlined as  opposed
              to   simply  linked  into  the  message.   They  can  be  listed
              individually on multiple lines or comma or space separated on  a
              single line.

       ignore_types = types_of_MIME_attachments_to_ignore
              This  is  the list of MIME attachment types that you do not want
              to do anything with.  They are quietly  ignored.   They  can  be
              listed   individually  on  multiple  lines  or  comma  or  space
              separated on a single line.

       linkquotes = [ 0 | 1 ]
              Set this to On to create fine-grained links from quoted text  to
              the  text  where  the  quote  originated.  It  also improves the
              threads index file by more  accurately  matching  messages  with
              replies.  Note  that  this  may be rather cpu intensive (see the
              searchbackmsgnum option to alter the performance).

       searchbackmsgnum = postive integer
              If the linkquotes option is on  and  an  incremental  update  is
              being done (-u option), this controls the tradeoff between speed
              and the reliability of finding the right source for quoted text.
              Try  to  set  it  to  the  largest  number of messages between a
              message and the final direct reply to that message.

       link_to_replies = [ string | NONE]
              If the linkquotes option is on, specifying a string here  causes
              it  to  generate links from original quoted text the location(s)
              in replies which quote them. The string is used to  display  the
              link.

       quote_hide_threshold = percent (integer)
              If  the linkquotes option is on, setting this to an integer less
              than 100 will cause it to  replace  quoted  text  with  one-line
              links  if the percent of lines in the message body (exluding the
              signature)  consisting  of  quoted  text  exceeds   the   number
              indicated by this option.

       quote_link_string = [ string | NONE ]
              If   the   quote_hide_threshold   option   is  being  used,  the
              quote_link_string will be used if available to display the  link
              that  replaces  the quoted text. If no string is specified here,
              the first line of each section of quoted text will used.

       monthly_index = [ 0 | 1 ]
              Set this to On to create additional index  files  broken  up  by
              month. A summary.html file will provide links to all the monthly
              indices.

       yearly_index = [ 0 | 1 ]
              Set this to On to create additional index  files  broken  up  by
              year.  A  summary.html file will provide links to all the yearly
              indices.

       thread_file_depth = [ 0 | 1 ]
              If nonzero, break the threads index file  into  multiple  files,
              with  the  initial message of each thread in the main index file
              along with links to files containing the replies.  Setting  this
              to  1  creates one file for each thread that has replies, and is
              recommended for archives  with  over  a  few  hundred  messages.
              Setting  this  greater  than  1  will produce multiple levels of
              files for each thread whose replies are nested by  more  than  1
              level,  but  that  is  rarely  useful.  This option is currently
              disabled if the indextable option is  turned  on,  and  probably
              needs to be less than thrdlevels.
