ezmlm-warn - send out bounce warnings
][ -t timeout
sends out warning messages for the mailing list stored in
scans dir/bounce/d/ for directories older
days ago (see -t
). The directories are created
and contain bounces. If ezmlm-warn
distribution bounce for box@domain received more
days ago, it sends box@domain
a list of all the message numbers missed recently, and deletes the
bounce. If it sees a warning bounce for
box@domain received more than timeout
ago, it sends box@domain a probe, and deletes
uses dir/bounce/lastd to keep track of when
it was last run. If insufficient time has passed (see -l
exits without further action.
keeps files with the bounced message numbers in
dir/bounce/h. Expired files are removed and
dir/bounce/lasth keeps track of the last subdirectory

currently a subscriber.
If neither the -d
nor the -D
option is given to ezmlm-warn
it will process bounces for both the main and digest lists.
reads dir/copylines to determine how many
lines of the original message to copy into the outgoing message. If
this file is empty or not present, a value of 0
meaning that only the header is copied.

- process bounces only for the digest list. Digest list bounces are stored
in dir/digest/bounce/ rather than in
- Process bounces only for the main list.
- -l lockout
- ezmlm-warn will abort execution if it was run less than
lockout seconds ago. The default is timeout / 50, which with
the default timeout is 20,000 seconds (approx. 5.6 hours). There is
no reason to use this switch, except for testing and possibly in
combination with -t.
- -t timeout
- Bounces received more than timeout days ago are processed. This
overrides the default of 10 days and may possibly be useful for very large
busy lists. Also, a timeout of zero can be used to send a warning
to all addresses for which a bounce has been received and a probe for all
addresses for which a warning has bounces. This is useful to rapidly clear
out bouncing addresses from a (low quality) address list.
