NAME

       notifyd - Cyrus notification server

SYNOPSIS

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

DESCRIPTION

       Notifyd is a daemon started from cyrmaster(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 services
       entry.  prefork=1 is also recommended.

       Notifyd reads its configuration options out of the  imapd.conf(5)  file  unless  specified
       otherwise  by  -C.   The  notifysocket option is used to specify the Unix domain socket to
       listen on for notifications.

OPTIONS

       -C config-file
              Read configuration options from config-file.

       -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

              additional recipients can be specified as :options.
