Plugins

The delivery daemon can be extended by a number of plugins. In Gromox, their filenames begin with libmtahook_.

Configuration directives (gromox.cfg)

The following directives are recognized when reading from /etc/gromox/gromox.cfg, or when the -c option is used to specify a custom file:

daemons_fd_limit

In gromox-delivery, this is treated as an alias for lda_fd_limit.

lda_fd_limit
Request that the file descriptor table be at least this large. The magic value 0 indicates that the system default hard limit (rlim_max, cf. setrlimit(2)) should be used.
Default: 0

Configuration directives (delivery.cfg)

The following directives are recognized when reading from /etc/gromox/delivery.cfg, or when the -c option is used to specify a custom file:
