NAME

       sensible-mda - a generic local MDA router for Debian systems

SYNOPSIS

       sensible-mda from to detail client-addr

DESCRIPTION

       sensible-mda  is used to simplify the installation and configuration of
       sendmail(8)  ,  or  other  MTAs  for  use  on  Debian  systems.    With
       sensible-mda,  sendmail  can  support  a  plethora  of  MDAs (procmail,
       maildrop, deliver, etc.) without  having   pick  any  one  of  them  as
       required.

FUNCTION

       sensible-mda is called by sendmail as a local mailer when the following
       exists in sendmail.mc:
       define(LOCAL_MAILER_ARGS, sensible-mda $g $u $h ${client_addr})dnl

       sensible-mda will look for the following MDAs (in this order), and pass
       the  mail  on  to  the first SUID MDA found (Or first found MDA, if run
       w/euid=root): procmail(1), maildrop(1), deliver(8), mail.local(8)

OPTIONS

       Available command line options are the following:

       from   The sender of this email (sendmail $g variable)

       to     The recipient of this email (sendmail $u variable)

       detail The  detail  portion  of  the  recipient  userid  (sendmail   $h
              variable) - ie:
              cowboy+sendmail@debian.org

       client-addr
              TCP/IP  address of the sender (sendmail ${client_addr} variable)
              Not used (for the nonce)

FILES

       /etc/mail/sendmail.mc
              sendmail m4 input to generate sendmail.cf

       /etc/mail/sendmail.cf
              actual sendmail configuration file (treated as a binary file)
