pygn2m(1) Python Gateway news to mail


pygs -t recipient@domain1 -s sender@domain2 [ -e envelope@domain3 ] [ -h ]


IMPORTANT: this man page is to be continued. The Whole pyg gateway is in devel. state. try -h option for more detailed option.

pygn2m reads from stdin a nntp article, sending it to recipient@domain1 a rfc822 compliant email setting Resent-Sender: sender@domain2 and envelope envelope@domain3 if exists, else sender@domain2.

If pygn2m reads from stdin a sigle line starting with /, it is considered an absolute path to an article (ie in a spool), so pygn2m will open and read it.


There is some documetation in /urs/share/doc/pyg

I created mailgate user (moderator of local.moderated ng). Every article posted in local.moderated is sent to mailgate, in its .procmailrc I've put:

:0 bhc * ^To: *local-moderated | $HOME/pygs -t kalfa@localhost -e [email protected] -s '[email protected]'

where kalfa@localhost is the recipient (usually a mailing list)

Here is an header extract from kalfa@localhost mbox:

From [email protected] From: whosentnntparticle@domain4 To: kalfa@localhost Resent-Sender: [email protected]

note that sender and envelope are different. rfc822 says that Sender: have to be a human user (not a program or similia). envelope can mailgate user.
