NAME

DESCRIPTION

courieruserinfo prints information about a user given a username that is accessable to the Courier authentication library. Usernames can be up to 64 characters long.

Exactly what information is retrieved by courieruserinfo can be specified using various command line switches. Default behaviour is to display all available user information. Using any of the specific information switches overrides this behaviour even if the -A switch is used. Any number of specific information switches can be combined.

Each item to display is returned on a separate line in the format <item>=<value>. If an item cannot be found for a user, the associated value field is blank. courieruserinfo cannot retrieve a user's password.

 

EXAMPLE COMMAND LINES

This command will display only the user's home directory:
       courieruserinfo -d <username>

As will this command:
       courieruserinfo -A -d <username>

Whereas this will display all available user information:
       courieruserinfo -A <username>

And this will display the user's home and maildir directories:
       courieruserinfo -d -m <username>

 

LOGGING

Logging is done to syslog by default or to stderr if the --stderr switch is used. courieruserinfo logs all failures to retrieve user information.

courieruserinfo does certain checks on command line arguments so it is important to put --stderr first in the argument list if it is to be used in order for these checks to be logged properly.
