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.
Message recipient selector "channel" (optional)
Message recipient selector "host" (optional)
-m "message string"
An alternate report string.

specifies a logfile.
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.

This program produces diagnostic output on the standard output. Normal
diagnostic output is of the form:
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>.
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.
This program uses no ZMailer environment variables.
