NAME

       ftpmail - FIFO-based Perl script for sending email based on proftpd TransferLog

SYNOPSIS

       ftpmail  [ --help ] [ --fifo fifo-path ] [ --from email-address ] [ --log xferlog-file ] [
       --recipient email-address ] [ --subject email-subject ] [ --smtp-server server-address ] [
       --attach-file ] [ --auth smtp-auth-info-file ] [ --ignore-users regex-pattern ] [ --watch-
       users regex-pattern ]

DESCRIPTION

       ftpmail is a Perl script designed to read ProFTPD's TransferLog log entries, watching  for
       uploads, and to send an automatic email notification when uploads occur.  To use ftpmail ,
       you configure your proftpd daemon to write its TransferLog to a FIFO; the ftpmail  program
       is a FIFO reading program which then processes those log messages.

OPTIONS

       --help      Display a short usage description, including all available options.

       --attach-file
                   If  used,  this  will  cause a copy of the uploaded file to be included, as an
                   attachment, in the generated email.

       --auth smtp-auth-info-file
                   Configures the path to a file containing SMTP authentication information.  The
                   configured file should look like this:
                          user      username
                          password  password

       --fifo fifo-path
                   Indicates  the  path  to the FIFO to which proftpd is writing its TransferLog.
                   That is, this is the path that you used for the TransferLog directive in  your
                   proftpd.conf.  This parameter is REQUIRED.

       --from email-address
                   Specifies  the  email address to use in the From email header.  This parameter
                   is REQUIRED.

       --ignore-users regex-pattern
                   Specifies a Perl regular expression.  If the uploading user name matches  this
                   regular  expression,  then  an  email  notification is NOT sent; otherwise, an
                   email is sent.

       --log xferlog-path
                   Since this script reads the TransferLog using FIFOs,  the  actual  TransferLog
                   file  is  not  written  by  default.   Use  this  option  to  write the normal
                   TransferLog file, in addition to watching for uploads.

       --recipient email-address
                   Specifies an email address to which to  send  an  email  notification  of  the
                   upload.    This  option  can  be  used  multiple  times  to  specify  multiple
                   recipients.  AT LEAST ONE recipient is REQUIRED.

       --smtp-server server-address
                   Specifies the SMTP server to which to  send  the  email.   This  parameter  is
                   REQUIRED.

       --subject subject
                   Specify a custom Subject email header for the email sent.  The default Subject
                   is:
                          User '$user' uploaded file '$file' via FTP

       --watch-users regex-pattern
                   Specifies a Perl regular expression.  If the uploading user name matches  this
                   regular expression, then an email notification is sent; otherwise, no email is
                   sent.
