NAME

       expirer - zmailer forced queue expiration utility

SYNOPSIS

       expirer [-c channel]       [-h "hostname"]      [-Vs]      [-l logfile]
               [-m "message string"]

DESCRIPTION

       expirer is a ZMailer transport agent which is used to  expire  selected
       recipients  from  the  queue  before  their normal expiration time with
       (possibly) a customized message.  The expirer(8zm) program must be  run
       with root privileges and invoked with the same current directory as the
       scheduler, namely POSTOFFICE/transport.

OPTIONS

       -c channel
              Message recipient selector "channel" (optional)

       -h "hostname"
              Message recipient selector "host" (optional)

       -m "message string"
              An alternate report string.

       -s     Silent mode. Message expiration occurs  without  any  report  to
              anywhere.

       -V     prints a version message and exits.

       -l logfile
              specifies a logfile.

INTERFACE

       This  program  reads  in processable file names relative to the current
       working     directory     of      the      scheduler(8zm)      (namely:
       $POSTIOFFICE/transport/).     Optionally   on   the   same   line   the
       scheduler(8zm) may tell which  host  is  to  be  looked  for  from  the
       recipients of the message.

              relative-spool-path [ <TAB> hostname ]

       This program produces diagnostic output on the standard output.  Normal
       diagnostic output is of the form:

              id/offset<TAB>notify-data<TAB>status message

       where id is the inode number of the message  file,  offset  is  a  byte
       offset  within  its control file where the address being reported on is
       kept, status is one of ok, error,  or  deferred,  and  the  message  is
       descriptive text associated with the report.  The text is terminated by
       a linefeed.  Any other format (as might be produced by subprocesses) is
       passed to standard output for logging in the scheduler(8zm) log.

       The exit status is a code from <sysexits.h>.

ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES

       ZCONFIG
              This  environment  variable is expected to be inherited from the
              scheduler(8zm), and it tells where  scheduler’s  idea  of  ZENV-
              variables are located at.

Z-ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES

       This program uses no ZMailer environment variables.

FILES

       /etc/zmailer/zmailer.conf   (ZCONFIG)
       /var/spool/postoffice       (POSTOFFICE)
