NAME

       qmail-lspawn - schedule local deliveries

SYNOPSIS

       qmail-lspawn defaultdelivery

DESCRIPTION

       qmail-lspawn  reads  a series of local delivery commands from descriptor 0, invokes qmail-
       local to perform the deliveries, and prints  the  results  to  descriptor  1.   It  passes
       defaultdelivery to qmail-local as the default delivery instruction.

       qmail-lspawn  invokes  qmail-local  asynchronously,  so the results may not be in the same
       order as the commands.

       For each recipient address, qmail-lspawn finds out which local user controls that address.
       It  first checks the qmail-users mechanism; if the address is not listed there, it invokes
       qmail-getpw.  qmail-lspawn then runs qmail-local under the user's uid and  gid.   It  does
       not set up any supplementary groups.

       qmail-lspawn treats an empty mailbox name as a trash address.
