7.8 Privilege Configuration

Mailfromd Conf: user name

Switch to this user’s privileges after startup. See Starting and Stopping, for a discussion of the privileges mailfromd runs under and the options that affect them. See also group below.

Mailfromd Conf: group name

Retain the supplementary group name when switching to user privileges. By default mailfromd clears the list of supplementary groups when switching to user privileges, but this statement allows to retain the given group. It can be specified multiple times to retain several groups. This option may be necessary to maintain proper access rights for various files. See Starting and Stopping.
