3.2.2 Databases in GDBM format

The protocol value ‘gdbm’ specifies a GDBM database. For the detailed description of GDBM system Introduction in The GNU DBM Manual.

Technically speaking, each GDBM record consists of a key and content. Its key holds the value of SMTPAUTHID’, 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.
