NAME

       amavisd-new - Interface between MTA and virus scanner/content filters

SYNOPSIS

       amavisd-new [ -u userid ] [ -g groupid ] [ -c config-file ]...  [ start
       | debug | stop | reload | debug | debug-sa | foreground ]

DESCRIPTION

       amavisd is a high-performance interface between message transfer  agent
       (MTA) and virus scanners and/or spam scanners.

       This  is  the amavisd-new incarnation of amavisd.  It is a performance-
       enhanced and feature-enriched version of the original amavisd  program.

       Amavisd-new  works  as  a SMTP proxy.  Email is fed to it through SMTP,
       processed, and fed back to the  MTA  through  a  new  SMTP  connection.
       There  is  no  buffering  to  disk  by  amavis, it will report that the
       transfer was sucessfull only after the forwarding MTA has accepted  the
       message.

       It is possible to use the sendmail milter interface instead of the SMTP
       proxy method, as well.
