amavisd new Interface between MTA and virus scanner/content filters

amavisd new [ u userid ] [ g groupid ] [ c config file ]... [ start | stop | reload | debug | debug sa | foreground ]

amavisd is a high performance interface between message transfer agent (MTA) and virus scanners and/or spam scanners.

This is the amavisd new incarnation of amavisd. It is a performance enhanced and feature enriched version of the original amavisd program.

Amavisd new works as a SMTP proxy. Email is fed to it through SMTP, processed, and fed back to the MTA through a new SMTP connection. There is no buffering
to disk by amavis, it will report that the transfer was sucessfull only after the forwarding MTA has accepted the message.

It is possible to use the sendmail milter interface instead of the SMTP proxy method, as well.

c configfile
Use the specified configuration file instead of using run parts(8) to find config files in /usr/share/amavis/conf.d and /etc/amavis/conf.d (this is a
Debian extension to Amavisd new). More than one c option can be specified and the files will be read in the order given.

u userid
Try to switch to that user id.

g groupid
Try to switch to that group id.

stop Stops a running amavisd new

reload Reloads configuration from config file (may in fact just restart amavisd new)

debug Runs amavisd new in debug mode

/etc/amavis/amavisd.conf, /var/lib/amavis, /var/run/amavis/
