NAME

       sympa_automatic, sympa_automatic.pl - Automatic list creation daemon

SYNOPSIS

       "sympa_automatic.pl" [ "-d, --debug" ] [ "-f, --file"=another.sympa.conf ]
       [ "-k, --keepcopy"=directory ] [ [ "-m, --mail" ] [ "-h, --help" ] [ "-v, --version" ]

DESCRIPTION

       Sympa_automatic.pl is a program which scans permanently the automatic creation spool and
       processes each message.

       If the list a message is bound for has not been there and list creation is authorized, it
       will be created.  Then the message is stored into incoming message spool again and wait
       for processing by sympa_msg.pl.

OPTIONS

       sympa_automatic.pl may run with following options in general.

       "-d", "--debug"
           Enable debug mode.

       "-f", "--config="file
           Force Sympa to use an alternative configuration file instead of
           /etc/sympa/sympa/sympa.conf.

       "--log_level="level
           Sets Sympa log level.

       sympa_automatic.pl may run in daemon mode with following options.

       "--foreground"
           The process remains attached to the TTY.

       "-k", "--keepcopy="directory
           This option tells Sympa to keep a copy of every incoming message, instead of deleting
           them. `directory' is the directory to store messages.

       "-m", "--mail"
           Sympa will log calls to sendmail, including recipients. This option is useful for
           keeping track of each mail sent (log files may grow faster though).

       With following options sympa_automatic.pl will print some information and exit.

       "-h", "--help"
           Print this help message.

       "-v", "--version"
           Print the version number.
