NAME

       cyr_deny - Cyrus IMAP documentation

       deny users access to Cyrus services

SYNOPSIS

       cyr_deny [ -C config-file ] [ -s services ] [ -m message ] user
       cyr_deny [ -C config-file ] -a user
       cyr_deny [ -C config-file ] -l

DESCRIPTION

       cyr_deny  is  used  to deny individual users access to Cyrus services.  The first synopsis
       denies user user access to Cyrus  services,  the  second  synopsis  allows  access  again.
       cyr_deny  works  by adding an entry to the Cyrus user_deny.db database; the third synopsis
       lists the entries in the database.

       cyr_deny reads its configuration options out of the imapd.conf(5)  file  unless  specified
       otherwise by -C.

OPTIONS

       -C config-file
              Use   the   specified  configuration  file  config-file  rather  than  the  default
              imapd.conf(5).

       -a user
              Allow access to all services  for  user  user  (remove  any  entry  from  the  deny
              database).

       -s services
              Deny access only to the given services, which is a comma-separated list of wildcard
              patterns.  The default is "*" which denies access to all services.

       -m message
              Provide a message which is sent to the user to explain why access is being  denied.
              A default message is used if none is specified.

       -l     List the entries in the deny database.
