citserver - Core of the Citadel Suite.


citserver [-lLogFacility] [-d] [-f] [-D] [-tTraceFile] [-xLogLevel] [-hHomeDir]


Citadel (the binary name is citserver) is the core of the Citadel Suite. It provides Data-storage and Connection-oriented protocols like IMAP/POP/SMTP. Citserver will usualy be spawned via /etc/init.d or inittab. Unless using the -h option you shouldn't run sev‐ eral instances at once. .SH OPTIONS SwitchResult -l Log facility. Usually "mail" -d daemonize (detach from controlling terminal) -D print the directories the server would access to stderr on startup -t[TraceFile] Send log messages to a file instead of syslog -x[LogLevel] Verbosity level of logging (0 to 9) -h[HomeDir] Data directory for this Citadel installation. If the directory name begins with a forward slash, it is an absolute path; otherwise it is relative to the default. Watch the output of -D to observe the effects.
