       vmsmaild - mail daemon for DECnet


       vmsmaild [options]
       [-vVhfU] [-l logtype]


       vmsmaild is a daemon that forwards incoming VMSmail (or mail11) message to Unix users.  It
       should be started at system boot time (after DECnet has been started) and must be  run  as
       root. It is recommended that you run vmsmaild from dnetd(8)
       The  options  below  affect  the  behaviour of vmsmaild. If you are using dnetd then these
       options should be specified in the dnetd.conf(5) file.


       -l     Set logging options. The following are available:
              -lm Log to /dev/mono. (only useful if you have my mono monitor driver or mdacon and
              a second monitor)
              -le Log to stderr. Use this for debugging or testing combined with -d.
              -ls Log to syslog(3). This is the default if no options are given.

       -v     Verbose.  The more of these there are the more verbose vmsmaild will be.  Don't use
              more than one for normal operation because it will seriously impair performance.

       -h -?  Displays help for using the command.

       -V     Show the version of vmsmaild.

       -f     Accepts mail send with the MAIL/FOREIGN command. Setting  this  option  complicates
              the  decoding of all mail message quite substantially because the remote end thinks
              it is talking to a VMS machine that understands RMS file  formats.  Only  use  this
              option if you really need it.

       -U     Don't  check  that  the reply user exists when starting up. If you only want to use
              linux as a recipient of mail from VMS systems and don't want to  create  a  vmsmail
              user  then  set  this  option.  See  the  Documentation/mail.README  file  for more
              information on setting up a mail gateway.
