NAME

       msmtpd - A minimal SMTP server

SYNOPSIS

       msmtpd [option...]

DESCRIPTION

       Msmtpd  is  a  minimal  SMTP  server that pipes mails to msmtp (or some other program) for
       delivery.  It is intended to be used with system services that expect an  SMTP  server  on
       the local host and cannot be configured to use the sendmail interface that msmtp provides.
       Msmtpd  handles  local  SMTP  clients. It listens on 127.0.0.1 port 25 by default, but can
       also run without its own network sockets in inetd mode, where it  handles  a  single  SMTP
       session on standard input / output.
       In  the  string  that  defines  the  command  that  msmtpd  pipes  each mail to, the first
       occurrence of %F will be  replaced  with  the  envelope  from  address.  Furthermore,  all
       recipients  of  the  mail  will  be  appended  as arguments. The command must not write to
       standard output, as that would mess up the SMTP session.
       Only run msmtpd if you know you need it. Only use a local interface  to  listen  on.  Take
       care  to run it with correct user rights and permissions (e.g. use CAP_NET_BIND_SERVICE to
       bind to  port  25  instead  of  running  as  root,  or  use  systemd  with  inetd  service
       capabilities).  Be  aware  that  the pipe command will be run as the same user that msmtpd
       runs as.
