10.1 Calloutd Configuration

Main configuration file /etc/mailfromd.conf is used (see Mailfromd Configuration). The configuration statements are basically the same as for mailfromd.

The address to listen on is defined in the server statement. Basically, it is the only statement the configuration file is required to have. The minimal configuration can look like:

program calloutd {
  server {
    listen inet://198.51.100.1:3535;
  }
}  

To instruct the mailfromd daemon to use this server, the following statement should be added to the /etc/mailfromd.conf file:

program mailfromd {
  callout-url inet://198.51.100.1:3535;
}  

The server statement differs a little from the similar statement for mailfromd. This and another calloutd-specific statements are described in detail in the subsections that follow. The rest of statements is shared with mailfromd. The following table lists all supported configuration statements along with cross-references to the correspondent descriptions:
