qmail-start - turn on mail delivery


       qmail-start [ logger arg ...  ]


       qmail-start   invokes   qmail-send,  qmail-lspawn,  qmail-
       rspawn, and qmail-clean.  These four daemons cooperate  to
       deliver messages from the queue.

       qmail-start  arranges  for qmail-send's activity record to
       be sent to qmail-start's output.  See qmail-log(5) for the
       format  of  the  activity record.  Other than this, qmail-
       start does not print anything, even on failure.

       If logger is supplied, qmail-start invokes logger with the
       given  arguments,  and  feeds qmail-send's activity record
       through logger.

       Environment variables given to qmail-start will eventually
       be  passed on to qmail-alias, so make sure to clean up the
       environment if you run qmail-start manually:

          # env - PATH="/var/qmail/bin:$PATH"
          qmail-start logger -p mail.info -t qmail &
          (all on one line)

       qmail-start sets the uid and gid of each daemon  properly.

       Note that qmail-send normally juggles several simultaneous
       deliveries.  To reduce qmail-send's impact on  other  pro-
       grams, you can run qmail-start with a low priority.
