3.2.2 Databases in GDBM format

The protocol value `gdbm' specifies a GDBM database. For the detailed description of GDBM system (gdbm)Top section `Introduction' in The GNU DBM Manual.

Technically speaking, each GDBM record consists of a key and content. Its key holds the value of SMTP `AUTHID', whereas its content holds SMTP password, system account name and path to user configuration file, separated by commas. As it was with `text' databases, the two last fields are optional.

The URL syntax for GDBM databases is:

 
gdbm:path

where path specifies absolute file name of the database file.
