Reload portions of the MTA configuration.
For compiled configurations, this utility reloads any mapping tables (
mapping group settings in Unified Configuration or the mapping file in legacy configuration), and the general, reverse, and forward "databases", if the applicable bits of
use_text_databases have been set. It does not, however, reload the entire compiled configuration; in particular, changes to channel definitions and rewrite rules (e.g., the
imta.cnf file in legacy configuration) are not propagated by
imsimta reload. Nor does it, in general, reload changes to MTA options.
imsimta reload utility also reloads authentication, SSL/TLS, and as of Messaging Server 8.0.2, affinity group options. This is done even if the MTA's configuration is not compiled.
Problems encountered attempting to reload the configuration can result in a syslog notice (sent with syslog facility and mask controlled by the
sndopr_priority MTA option):
BADCONFIGLOAD, Attempt to load new configuration failed.
BADCONFIG, Attempt to map new configuration failed.
