DESCRIPTION is a program which scans permanently the incoming message spool and processes
       each message.

       Messages bound for the lists and authorized sending are modified as necessity and at last
       stored into digest spool, archive spool and outgoing spool.  Those bound for command
       addresses are interpreted and appropriate actions are taken.  Those bound for listmasters
       or list admins are forwarded to them.

OPTIONS follows the usual GNU command line syntax, with long options starting with
       two dashes ("--").  A summary of options is included below.

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

       "-f", "--config="file
           Force Sympa to use an alternative configuration file instead of

       "-l", "--lang="lang
           Set this option to use a language for Sympa. The corresponding gettext catalog file
           must be located in $LOCALEDIR directory.

           Sets Sympa log level. may run in daemon mode with following options.

           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).

           Note: This option was deprecated.

           Process is dedicated to messages distribution ("process_message"), commands
           ("process_command") or to automatic lists creation ("process_creation", default three
           of them).
