Description Andreas J. Bathe 2000-11-15 10:14:32 UTC
I'm setting up the Cyrus IMAP server (RH 7.0). Upgraded to the Rawhide
version cyrus-imapd-2.0.7-2. In /etc/cron.daily there is the script

su cyrus -s /bin/bash -c '/usr/cyrus/bin/deliver -E 3'

and logs the following error:

deliver: 'E' option no longer supported
421-4.3.0 usage: deliver [-m mailbox] [-a auth] [-r return_path] [-l] [-D]
421 4.3.0 v2.0.7

I commented it out. Do we still need that cron-daily script?

Comment 1 Andreas J. Bathe 2000-11-30 09:22:29 UTC
Within the info-cyrus list I found:

The "ctl_deliver" program now can prune the deliverdb; I believe the
sample cyrus.conf files will automatically call ctl_deliver to prune
back the database once a day.

So I changed /etc/cron.daily/cyrus-imapd to:

su - cyrus -s /bin/bash -c '/usr/cyrus/bin/ctl_deliver -E 3'

I'll change this for 2.0.9-2 and later.  Thanks!

Comment 3 Andy 2004-12-17 15:00:16 UTC
Proposed solution:

in /etc/cron.daily/cyrus-imapd


su - cyrus -s /bin/bash -c '/usr/cyrus/bin/cyr_expire -E 3'
