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.
