NAME

       qmail-newu - prepare address assignments for qmail-lspawn

SYNOPSIS

       qmail-newu

DESCRIPTION

       qmail-newu  reads  the  assignments  in /var/lib/qmail/users/assign and
       writes them into /var/lib/qmail/users/cdb in a binary format suited for
       quick access by qmail-lspawn.

       If  there  is  a  problem  with  users/assign, qmail-newu complains and
       leaves users/cdb alone.

       qmail-newu ensures that users/cdb  is  updated  atomically,  so  qmail-
       lspawn never has to wait for qmail-newu to finish.  However, qmail-newu
       makes no  attempt  to  protect  against  two  simultaneous  updates  of
       users/cdb.

       The binary users/cdb format is portable across machines.
