General-Purpose Mail Package
|Official GNU Software|
Run as a standalone daemon.
The server is started from /etc/inetd.conf file:
comsat dgram udp wait root /usr/sbin/comsatd \ comsatd -c /etc/comsat.conf
This is the default operation mode.
Test mode. In this mode,
comsatd takes two arguments:
URL of a mailbox and QID of the message from that
mailbox and prints the notification to the current user tty
(/dev/tty), or file, if it is supplied. If the
~/.biffrc file exists, it will be used. For example:
$ comsatd --test /var/mail/root 34589
Notice, that file is an optional argument. When supplied, it should follow the short option form immediately, or the long option form after the equals sign, e.g.:
$ comsatd --test=logfile /var/mail/root 34589
$ comsatd -tlogfile /var/mail/root 34589
Don’t detach from the controlling terminal, remain in foreground.
