sympa [ -d, --debug ] [ -f, --file=another.sympa.conf ] [ -k, --keepcopy=directory ] [ -l, --lang=catalog ] [ -m, --mail ] [ -h, --help ] [ -v, --version ] [ --import=listname ] [ --close_list=list[@robot]][ --purge_list=list[@robot]] [ --lowercase ] [ --make_alias_file ] [ --dump=listname | ALL]
Sympa is scalable and highly customizable mailing list manager. It can cope with big lists (200,000 subscribers) and comes with a complete (user and admin) Web interface. It is internationalized, and supports the us, fr, de, es, it, fi, and chinese locales. A scripting language allows you to extend the behavior of commands. Sympa can be linked to an LDAP directory or an RDBMS to create dynamic mailing lists. Sympa provides S/MIME and HTTPS based authentication and encryption. Sympa is a modern mailing-list manager. It supports a lot of useful features.
-d, --debug Enable debug mode. -f, --file=another.sympa.conf Force Sympa to use an alternative configuration file instead of /etc/sympa/sympa.conf. -k, --keepcopy=directory This option tells Sympa to keep a copy of every incoming message, instead of deleting them. `directory' is the directory to store messages. -l, --lang=catalog Set this option to use a language catalog for Sympa. The corresponding catalog file `catalogue'.cat must be located in /usr/lib/sympa/nls directory. -m, --mail Sympa will log calls to sendmail, including recipients. This option is useful for keeping track of each mail sent (log files may grow faster though). -h, --help Print this help message. -v, --version Print the version number. With the following options sympa.pl will run in batch mode : --import=list Import subscribers in the list. Data are read from STDIN. The imported data should contain one entry per line : the first field is an email address, the second (optional) field is the free form name. Fields are spaces-separated. Sample : ## Data to be imported ## email gecos email@example.com John - accountant firstname.lastname@example.org Mary - secretary --close_list=list[@robot] Close the list (changing its status to closed), remove aliases and remove subscribers from DB (a dump is created in the list directory to allow restoring the list) --purge_list=list[@robot] Remove the list (remove archive, configuration files, users and owners in admin table. Restore is not possible after this operation. --lowercase Lowercases email addresses in database. --make_alias_file Create an aliases file in /tmp/ with all list aliases. It uses the list_aliases.tpl template. --dump=listname | ALL Dumps subscribers of for `listname' list or all lists. Subscribers are dumped in subscribers.db.dump.
/etc/sympa/sympa.conf main configuration file. /var/spool/sympa/sympa.pid this file contains the process ID of sympa.pl.
