4.2.1 Basic Settings

(This message will disappear, once this node revised.)

Option: bind [host:]port

Specify the TCP port on which GNU Anubis listens for connections. The default host value is ‘INADDR_ANY’, which means that anyone can connect to GNU Anubis. The default port number is 24 (private mail system). This option is available only in the system configuration file. If you would like, for instance, to bind GNU Anubis to port 25 (SMTP) and limit its clients only to those from ‘localhost’, then set the following in your system configuration file:

 
bind localhost:25
Option: remote-mta host[:port]

Specify a remote SMTP host name or IP address, which GNU Anubis will connect and forward mail to (after processing). The default port number is 25. This option is available in both configuration files.

Option: local-mta file-name [args]

Execute a local SMTP server, which works on standard input and output (inetd-type program). This option excludes the ‘remote-mta’ keyword (or ‘--remote-mta’ command line option). For example:

 
local-mta /usr/sbin/sendmail -bs
Option: mode mode-name

Selects Anubis operation mode. Allowed values for mode-name are:

transparent
auth

See section Authentication, for the detailed discussion of GNU Anubis operation modes.

Option: read-entire-body yes-or-no

When processing a multi-part message using an external filter (see section Using an External Processor) Anubis normally feeds to it only the first part. The rest of the message is copied verbatim. To alter this behavior so that your external program sees the entire message body, set read-entire-body yes in your control section.

Option: incoming-mail-rule string

Declares name of processing sections for incoming mail. Default is ‘INCOMING’. This option is available only for system configuration file. See section Using Anubis to Process Incoming Mail, for detailed description of incoming mail processing.

Option: outgoing-mail-rule string

Declares name of processing sections for outgoing mail. Default is ‘RULE’. This option is available only for system configuration file.
