Revision as of 17:10, 13 February 2020


Table of MTA options, listed alphabetically, shown below, lists the available options in alphabetic order. A brief description of each option is included, though more details can be found in the discussions of the individual options. See also MTA options, listed by functionality, which lists the options grouped together by function, and which furthermore includes links to subsections with general information about the groups of options.

MTA options, listed alphabetically
Option Usage
access_auth (New in 8.0) Control whether FROM_ACCESS mapping table probes include the SMTP MAIL FROM AUTH parameter's value and/or the canonical username produced by authentication
access_counts Control whether recipient access mapping table probes include a recipient count field
access_errors Control the information issued in certain error messages
access_orcpt Control whether recipient access mapping table probes include an ORCPT field
alias_case Control the case sensitivity of aliases; support for this option is RESTRICTED: set it only if instructed to do so by Oracle engineering
alias_domains Control the format of alias file (and hence Unified Configuration alias options) and alias database lookups
alias_entry_cache_negative Whether to cache negative results (i.e., failures) of alias lookups (alias_urlN lookups)
alias_entry_cache_size Number of alias lookup (alias_urlN) results to keep cached
alias_entry_cache_timeout How long to cache alias lookup (alias_urlN) results
alias_magic Control the order in which alias lookups are performed; support for this option is RESTRICTED
alias_url0 URL for doing alias lookups
alias_url1 URL for doing alias lookups
alias_url2 URL for doing alias lookups
alias_url3 URL for doing alias lookups
alias_hash_size Set the number of aliases allowed in the alias file
alias_member_size Set the number of alias expansions allowed: in the alias file (legacy configuration), or via alias option (Unified Configuration)
aliasdetourhost_null_optin (New in MS 6.2p4) Specify a value for the attribute named by the ldap_detourhost_optin MTA option (and new in MS 7.0.5, also the attribute named by the ldap_domain_attr_detourhostoptin) that means that the attribute should be ignored; the purpose is to allow a way of "turning off" message detouring (where the detouring is typically for purposes of spam/virus filtering) for sites and users whose provisioning facilities find it easier to set an attribute value rather than to remove an attribute entirely
allow_unquoted_addrs_violate_rfc2798 Look up addresses in LDAP with quotes stripped from the local part
alternate_recipient (New in MS 8.0.1) Specify the comment string used to add an alternate recipient for an address.
alternate_recipient_mode (New in MS 8.0.1) Control handling of multiple alternate recipients.
ap_debug Internal MTA debugging option: enable debugging of low level address parsing; support for this option is RESTRICTED
autoreply_timeout_default Specify a default duration between successive vacation responses to the same sender
averages_cache_size (New in MS 6.2) Size of the cache of load average values
averages_cache_timeout (New in MS 6.2) Timeout for the cache of load average values
block_limit Limit the size of messages allowed through the MTA
block_size Set the size of MTA "blocks"
blocked_mail_from_ips Specify IP address literals whose A records should be ignored for purposes of the lookups done due to the mailfromdnsverify channel keyword (new in 6.1-0.01 release)
bounce_block_limit Limit the amount of original message content included in bounce messages
brightmail_* Synonyms for the corresponding spamfilter_* options; see the spamfilter_* options for definitions
buffer_size Set the buffer size used when writing message files; default is 8192
cache_debug Output direct LDAP lookup caching statistics
cache_magic OBSOLETE: Control the sorting (for processing purposes) of old message files
channel_table_size Set the number of channels allowed in the MTA configuration
circuitcheck_completed_bins Specify the bins for the message circuit check message counters
circuitcheck_paths_size Number of circuit check paths (entries) to allow in the circuit check configuration file
comment_chars Set the "comment" character(s) in MTA configuration files
content_return_block_limit Force NOTARY non-return of content flag for messages over the specified size
conversion_size Set the number of entries allowed in the conversion file (legacy configuration) or conversions MTA option (Unified Configuration)
conversions (Unified Configuration only) Conversion entries; replaces legacy configuration conversions file
defer_group_processing Set a default for whether direct LDAP group (list) expansion is deferred to the reprocess channel
delimiter_char (New in 7.0) RESTRICTED. Specify the delimiter character (normally the vertical bar character)
delivery_options Specify interpretation of mailDeliveryOption values
dequeue_debug Enable debugging of message dequeue operations
dequeue_map RESTRICTED. Map files into memory when dequeuing
describe_cache_limit Control size of message part description cache for message body processing purposes
digest_on Specify the comment string that enables mailing list digests (in preference to regular mailing list postings); usage is RESTRICTED
dirsync_hack In dirsync mode, enable "hack" of falling back to trying to do an LDAP lookup and adding the LDAP result to the alias database; usage is DELETED
domain_failure Rewrite template to apply when an LDAP lookup encounters an LDAP error
domain_hash_size Set the number of rewrite rules allowed
domain_match_cache_size Number of domain lookup ($V rewrite template) results to keep cached
domain_match_cache_timeout How long to cache domain lookup ($V rewrite template) results
domain_match_url URL for an extra, special lookup for domains, e.g., URL for looking up vanity domains
domain_uplevel Control whether to search "upwards" in the DC tree for domain names, and whether to use a "canonical" domain name when searching for user entries
