Startup Notes

The component cannot be launched directly from line of the operating system in an autonomous mode (autonomously from other components). It is launched automatically by the Dr.Web ConfigD configuration daemon when receiving requests on mail objects scanning from other components of Dr.Web for UNIX Mail Servers. To manage the operation of the component, as well as to scan mail objects when needed, you can use the Dr.Web Ctl command-line-based management tool for Dr.Web for UNIX Mail Servers (it is launched by using the drweb-ctl command).

To scan the processing of an arbitrary email message by the Dr.Web MailD component, you can use the checkmail command of Dr.Web Ctl tool. To do that, save the scanned email message on a drive (for example, in the .eml format) and use the command:

$ drweb-ctl checkmail <path to file .eml>

To request documentation about this component of the product from the command line, use the following command. man 1 drweb-maild.
