8 Mailfromd Command Line Syntax

The mailfromd binary is started from the command line using the following syntax (brackets indicate optional parts):

$ mailfromd [options] [asgn] [script]

The meaning of each invocation part is described in the table below:

options

The command line options (see options).

asgn

var=value

where var is the name of a Sendmail macro and value is the value to be assigned to it.

script

The file name of the filter script, if other than the default one.
