Defragmentation channel configuration
A defragmentation channel is normally generated as part of an initial configuration.
In legacy configuration, the defragmentation channel definition consists of a channel entry, at its most minimal perhaps merely:
or as of 8.0:
defragment receivedstate "convert/defragment" defragment-daemon
and rewrite rules of the form:
defragment $U@defragment.localhostname@defragment-daemon defragment.localhostname $U@defragment.localhostname@defragment-daemon
localhostname should be replaced by the name of the local host.
In Unified Configuration, the equivalent would be:
msconfig> show channel:defragment.* role.channel:defragment.official_host_name = defragment-daemon msconfig> show rewrite.rule * defragment* role.rewrite.rule = defragment $U%defragment.domain.com@defragment-daemon role.rewrite.rule = defragment.&/IMTA_HOST/ $U%defragment.domain.com@defragment-daemon
domain.com being replaced by a site's own domain name).
Once such a defragment channel and rewrite rules are in the configuration, then an address of the form
will be routed through the defragmentation channel. (Sending anything other than a message/partial message to the defragmentation channel causes the channel to simply requeue the message for normal delivery.)
