NAME
       notifyd - Cyrus IMAP documentation

       Cyrus notification server

SYNOPSIS
       notifyd [ -C config-file ]  [ -U uses ] [ -T timeout ] [ -D ]

DESCRIPTION
       notifyd is a daemon started from master(8) that handles notification
       requests on behalf of lmtpd(8). Notifyd accepts the request and
       performs the notification using the method specified in the request.

       Note that for notifyd to run properly you must set proto=udp in its
       cyrus.conf(5) services entry.  prefork=1 is also recommended.

       notifyd reads its configuration options out of the imapd.conf(5) file
       unless specified otherwise by -C.

       notifysocket option is used to specify the Unix domain socket to listen
       on for notifications.

OPTIONS
       -C config-file
              Use the specified configuration file config-file rather than the
              default imapd.conf(5).

       -U uses
              The maximum number of times that the process should be used for
              new connections before shutting down.  The default is 250.

       -T timeout
              The number of seconds that the process will wait for a new
              connection before shutting down.  Note that a value of 0 (zero)
              will disable the timeout.  The default is 60.

       -D     Run external debugger specified in debug_command.

NOTIFICATION METHODS
       null
          Ignore the notification request.

       log
          Log the notification to syslog (for testing).

       mailto
          Email the notification.  This method can ONLY be used in a Sieve
          'notify' action as it requires a mailto: URL to be specified as an
          :option.

       zephyr
          Send the notification as a zephyrgram.  If used in a Sieve 'notify'
          action, additional recipients can be specified as :options.

       external
          Send the notification via an external program.  The path to the
          program is specified using the notify_external option in the
          configuration file.

FILES
       /etc/imapd.conf, /etc/cyrus.conf
