NAME

       awayrc - configuration file for Away

DESCRIPTION

       An  away  configuration  file consists of a series of commands.  Each line of the file may
       contain only one command.  Command names are case-insensitive.  Commands and arguments are
       separated by spaces.

       The  hash  mark,  or  pound sign ("#"), is used as a comment character.  You can use it to
       annotate your configuration file.  All text after the comment character to the end of  the
       line is ignored.

       Take  note  that  if  any  mailboxes  are configured in the rc file, they will be the only
       mailboxes checked, which means  that  you  must  add  your  inbox--the  $MAIL  environment
       variable will be ignored.

COMMANDS

       mail VALUE
              This  command  allows  the  user  to  disable  or enable the checking of the user's
              mailboxes.  If mail checking is disabled, all  mailbox  and  maildir  commands  are
              ignored.  VALUE can be 0, 1, no, or yes.  The default value is 'yes'.

       mailbox FILENAME
              A file that should be checked for "new mail."  The filename will be appended to the
              previous maildir declaration.  An  optional  description  of  the  mailbox  may  be
              supplied.   If  the  description  contains  a space, the entire description must be
              enclosed in braces, "{" and "}".

       maildir DIRECTORY
              A path where subsequent mailbox declarations will be located.  The only argument is
              the path itself.

       persist VALUE
              This  command  will set whether to do persistent mail checking.  VALUE can be 0, 1,
              no, or yes.  The default value is 'yes'.

       time SECONDS
              This command will set the number of seconds that away sleeps before performing  its
              background  tasks.   Presently,  the only background task that away will perform is
              the checking of mailboxes.  The SECONDS value must be more than the minimum,  which
              set  at  compile  time.   The  only argument is the number of seconds.  The default
              value is 300.

EXAMPLE

       # check mailboxes
       mail yes

       # check mail every 60 seconds
       time 60

       # do not do persistent checking
       persist no

       # inbox
       maildir /var/spool/mail
           mailbox johndoe                {your Inbox}

       # procmail folders
       maildir /home/johndoe/mail
           mailbox linux-security         {Linux Security}
           mailbox mutt-announce          {Mutt Announce}
