This is the binary which processes a mail. Examples of what such processing is:
- Access control
Using the access rules specified in <listdir>/control/access to
perform access control to the list. This is done before headers are
stripped, so one can create allow rules based on headers that are later
- Header stripping
Headers specified in <listdir>/control/delheaders are deleted from the
- Header addition
Headers specified in <listdir>/control/customheaders are added to the
mail. This could be headers like List-ID: or Reply-To:
- List control
In case there's a mail with a recipient delimiter it's not a regular list
mail. Processing of these happens in mlmmj-receive as well. Examples of
such are subscription requests, mails to owner etc. It will base it's
recipient delimiter detection on the Delivered-To: header if present. If
not, the To: header is used.
If the list is moderated, it will happen in mlmmj-process.
When processing is done, it will invoke the needed binary according to whatever
mail it is. If it's a subscription request it will invoke mlmmj-sub, if it's a
regular list mail it will invoke mlmmj-send.
The file TUNABLES from the mlmmj source distribution or in the documentation
directory of the operating system distribution.
