NAME qmail-lspawn - schedule local deliveries
SYNOPSIS qmail-lspawn defaultdelivery
DESCRIPTION qmail-lspawn reads a series of local delivery commands from descriptor 0, invokes qmail- local to perform the deliveries, and prints the results to descriptor 1. It passes defaultdelivery to qmail-local as the default delivery instruction. qmail-lspawn invokes qmail-local asynchronously, so the results may not be in the same order as the commands. For each recipient address, qmail-lspawn finds out which local user controls that address. It first checks the qmail-users mechanism; if the address is not listed there, it invokes qmail-getpw. qmail-lspawn then runs qmail-local under the user's uid and gid. It does not set up any supplementary groups. qmail-lspawn treats an empty mailbox name as a trash address.
