NAME

       qmail-local - deliver or forward a mail message

SYNOPSIS

       qmail-local [ -nN ] user homedir local dash ext domain sender defaultdelivery

DESCRIPTION

       qmail-local  reads  a  mail  message and delivers it to user by the procedure described in
       dot-qmail(5).

       The message's envelope recipient is local@domain.  qmail-local records local@domain  in  a
       new  Delivered-To  header  field.   If exactly the same Delivered-To: local@domain already
       appears in the header, qmail-local bounces the message, to prevent mail forwarding loops.

       The message's envelope sender is sender.  qmail-local records sender in a new  Return-Path
       header field.

       homedir is the user's home directory.  It must be an absolute directory name.

       dash  and  ext  identify  the  .qmaildashext  file  used by qmail-local; see dot-qmail(5).
       Normally dash is either empty or a lone hyphen.  If it  is  empty,  qmail-local  treats  a
       nonexistent  .qmailext  the same way as an empty .qmailext: namely, following the delivery
       instructions in defaultdelivery.

       The standard input for qmail-local must be a seekable file, so that qmail-local  can  read
       it more than once.

OPTIONS

       -n     Instead  of reading and delivering the message, print a description of the delivery
              instructions.

       -N     (Default.) Read and deliver the message.

EXIT CODES

       0 if the delivery is completely successful; nonzero if any  delivery  instruction  failed.
       Exit code 111 indicates temporary failure.
