NAME

       notifyd - Cyrus IMAP documentation

       Cyrus notification server

SYNOPSIS

       notifyd [ -C config-file ]  [ -U uses ] [ -T timeout ] [ -D ]

DESCRIPTION

       notifyd is a daemon started from master(8) that handles notification requests on behalf of
       lmtpd(8). Notifyd accepts the request and  performs  the  notification  using  the  method
       specified in the request.

       Note that for notifyd to run properly you must set proto=udp in its cyrus.conf(5) services
       entry.  prefork=1 is also recommended.

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

       notifysocket  option  is  used  to  specify  the  Unix  domain  socket  to  listen  on for
       notifications.

OPTIONS

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

       -U uses
              The  maximum  number  of  times that the process should be used for new connections
              before shutting down.  The default is 250.

       -T timeout
              The number of seconds that the process  will  wait  for  a  new  connection  before
              shutting  down.   Note  that  a  value  of  0 (zero) will disable the timeout.  The
              default is 60.

       -D     Run external debugger specified in debug_command.

NOTIFICATION METHODS

       null
          Ignore the notification request.

       log
          Log the notification to syslog (for testing).

       mailto
          Email the notification.  This method can ONLY be used in a Sieve 'notify' action as  it
          requires a mailto: URL to be specified as an :option.

       zephyr
          Send  the notification as a zephyrgram.  If used in a Sieve 'notify' action, additional
          recipients can be specified as :options.

       external
          Send the notification via an external program.  The path to the  program  is  specified
          using the notify_external option in the configuration file.
