NAME

       barrendero - Mail spool directory cleaner

SYNOPSIS

       barrendero { -d spooldir [-u] | -f folder } [-c config_file | -n]
       barrendero { -h | -V }

DESCRIPTION

       Barrendero  is  a program designed to clean the mail spool directory to
       free disk space. It does this by looking in every mail  folder  in  the
       spool dir and deleting the messages older than a certain age. The users
       can get a mail with the report of the actions done  in  their  folders,
       consisting  on a extract of the headers of the messages deleted and the
       messages soon to be deleted.

OPTIONS

       -d, --spool spooldir
              Specify the spool directory to process, for instance  /var/mail.
              For  each  file  in  the  spool directory, barrendero will check
              whether it is named after a valid system user and that the  user
              matches the file name before cleaning the folder.

       -u, --process-non-users
              Force processing folders in the spool directory that do not seem
              to be valid users’ mailbox names. If a  report  is  emailed,  it
              will  be  sent  to  the  owner  of the file rather than the user
              guessed from the file name.

       -f, --folder folder
              Specify a single mail folder to clean. If a report  is  emailed,
              it will be sent to the owner of the file.

       -c, --config config_file
              Use    an    alternate    configuration    file    instead    of
              /etc/barrendero/barrendero.conf.

       -n, --noconfig
              Do not read any configuration file.

       -h, --help
              Print help information and exit.

       -V, --version
              Print version and copyright information and exit.

CONFIG FILE

       Most barrendero options are defined in the global  configuration  file,
       which is /etc/barrendero/barrendero.conf by default. Some options, such
       as the trigger age, can be configured on a per-user basis.

       See barrendero.conf(5) for more information.
