It is assumed that the incoming mail for manitou-mdx is received by a local unix account (fetchmail default behavior), or locally mail-dropped (fetchmail with --mda or
maildrop). One of these methods may be used:
The following line can be added to the
/etc/aliases file to make the incoming mail being piped into manitou-spool:
myaccount: "|manitou-spool /path/to/some/manitou/spool-directory"(the newaliases command must be run for the aliases file to be reloaded).
To drop the mailfiles into a directory named for instance
$HOME/private/manitou/spool, the following lines should be added to the .procmailrc file in the HOME directory:
:0 |manitou-spool $HOME/private/manitou/spool
Procmail is popular for its filtering capabilities, but a simple
$HOME/.forward file is sufficient to deliver into mailfiles. Refer to the local mail system documentation on how to set up a .forward file.
