NAME

       esmtpd, esmtpd-ssl, esmtpd-msa - Courier mail server ESMTP daemon

SYNOPSIS

       esmtpd start

       esmtpd stop

       esmtpd restart

       esmtpd-ssl start

       esmtpd-ssl stop

       esmtpd-ssl restart

       esmtpd-msa start

       esmtpd-msa stop

       esmtpd-msa restart

DESCRIPTION

       The   command  "esmtpd  start"  runs  couriertcpd  in  the  background,
       listening on the SMTP port.   couriertcpd  will  run  courieresmtpd  in
       response to connection requests.

       The  command  "esmtpd stop" stops the couriertcpd daemon, shutting down
       the ESMTP service.

       The command "esmtpd-ssl start" starts the server on the  ESMTP-over-SSL
       port, port 465.  "esmtpd-ssl stop" stops it.

       The  command  "esmtpd-msa  start"  starts  the  server  on  the message
       submission port, port 587.  "esmtpd-msa stop" stops it.  The difference
       between  esmtpd  and  esmtpd-msa  is  that  the  latter  is  set up for
       additional processing as defined by RFC 2476 (mainly that the  messages
       will have the Message-ID: and Date: headers added, by default).

       Normally,  makesmtpaccess(8)  automatically  runs  "esmtpd restart", in
       order to reread the /etc/courier/smtpaccess.dat  access  file,  so  you
       don’t  have  to  do  it  manually, yourself. Similarly, makesmtpaccess-
       ssl(8) automatically runs esmtpd-ssl restart and  makesmtpaccess-msa(8)
       automatically runs esmtpd-msa restart

FILES

       /etc/courier/esmtpd
              This   configuration   file  initializes  various  settings  for
              courieresmtpd.

       /etc/courier/esmtpd-ssl
              This   configuration   file   initializes   the   settings   for
              courieresmtpd  when  invoked by esmtpd-ssl.  Note that this file
              is used  to  override  the  settings  /etc/courier/esmtpd.   The
              command "esmtpd-ssl start" first reads /etc/courier/esmtpd, then
              afterwards /etc/courier/esmtpd-ssl. Any settings  in  esmtpd-ssl
              override the corresponding settings in esmtpd

       /etc/courier/esmtpd-msa
              This   configuration   file   initializes   the   settings   for
              courieresmtpd when invoked by esmtpd-msa.  Note that  this  file
              is  used  to  override  the  settings  /etc/courier/esmtpd.  The
              command "esmtpd-msa start" first reads /etc/courier/esmtpd, then
              afterwards  /etc/courier/esmtpd-msa.  Any settings in esmtpd-msa
              override the corresponding settings in esmtpd
