NAME

mailping-store - store email from stdin to a mailping incoming maildir  

SYNOPSIS

mailping-store
 

DESCRIPTION


 mailping-store reads an email from standard input and writes it into a maildir chosen according to following logic: 

1.
If EXTENSION is not set, select Maildir.

2. If EXTENSION is set, ensure its value is safe to use, and select EXTENSION/incoming.


 


 mailping-store is usually run from a .forward file, and thus the filenames above are relative to the home directory of the account in question.  

Normal use

Normally, mailping-store is used to ease the setup of new circuits to probe from mailping-cron. This is done with a system account mailping using <mailping@yourhost.example.com> as the from address, and <mailping+circuitname@yourhost.example.com> (or some remote address aliased to that) as the to address. In fact, these are the default values for from and to, so you can just skip creating those configuration files.

This allows adding new test circuits without any changes to the email configuration.  

FILES

/var/lib/mailping/state/circuit/incoming

/var/lib/mailping/state/Maildir/
