DESCRIPTION

The file /etc/mail/mailer.conf contains a series of pairs. The first member of each pair is the name of a program invoking mailwrapper(8) which is typically a symbolic link to /usr/sbin/sendmail. (On a typical system, newaliases(1) and mailq(1) would be set up this way.) The second member of each pair is the name of the program to actually execute when the first name is invoked. The file may also contain comments, denoted by a # mark in the first column of any line.

FILES

/etc/mail/mailer.conf

EXAMPLES

The following is an example of how to set up an mailer.conf for traditional sendmail invocation behavior.
# Execute the "real" sendmail program, named /usr/libexec/sendmail/sendmail
sendmail /usr/libexec/sendmail/sendmail
send-mail /usr/libexec/sendmail/sendmail
mailq /usr/libexec/sendmail/sendmail
newaliases /usr/libexec/sendmail/sendmail

This example shows how to invoke a sendmail-workalike like Postfix in place of sendmail.
# Emulate sendmail using postfix
sendmail /usr/local/sbin/sendmail
send-mail /usr/local/sbin/sendmail
mailq /usr/local/sbin/sendmail
newaliases /usr/local/sbin/sendmail
