NAME
       notifyd - Cyrus notification server

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

DESCRIPTION
       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.

OPTIONS
       -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.
