       notifyd - Cyrus notification server

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

       Notifyd is a daemon started from cyrus-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 services entry.  prefork=1 is also recommended.

       Notifyd reads its configuration options out of the imapd.conf(5) file
       unless specified otherwise by -C.  The notifysocket option is used to
       specify the Unix domain socket to listen on for notifications.

       -C config-file
              Read configuration options from config-file.

       -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.

       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

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

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