0bd1a913 6This file contains complete lists of four kinds of Exim option:
8 1. Those that can appear in the run time configuration file;
9 2. Those that can be used on the command line;
10 3. Those that can appear in the build time configuration (Local/Makefile);
11 4. Those that can appear in the build time configuration for the Exim monitor
12 (Local/eximon.conf).
83da1223 14This file was last updated for Exim release 4.67.
20As Exim has developed, new options have been added at each major release. For
21the most part, backwards compatibility has been maintained, and obsolete
22options continue to be recognized. However, incompatible changes took place at
23releases 3.00, and 4.00. In both cases, several groups of options were
24amalgamated into new, extended options, and obsolete options were removed.
26The table below contains a complete list of all Exim's current options, along
27with their types, default values, and where they can be used. String options
28that are expanded before use are marked with *. Host lists, domain lists, and
29address lists are always expanded. In some cases the defaults are not fixed
30values, or not short enough to fit in the table. These are indicated by +. Some
31other default values are determined when the Exim binary is compiled; these are
32indicated by ++.
34For options that are specific to a particular driver, the fourth column
35contains the driver name, for example, appendfile. Otherwise, it contains
37 . `main' for options that appear in the main section of Exim's configuration
38 file;
40 . `authenticators' for generic options that apply to any authenticator;
42 . `routers' for generic options that apply to any router;
44 . `transports' for generic options that apply to any transport.
46The fifth column contains the version of Exim in which the option was added, or
47substantially changed. Where no number is given, the option has been in Exim
48since the very early releases. The routers were completely reorganised for
49release 4.00, and so no router options are shown as earlier than 4.00, though
50in fact some of them were inherited from earlier versions.

726The table below contains a complete list of options that can be set in
727Local/Makefile when building Exim. More information about individual options
728can be found in src/EDITME and OS/Makefile-Default.
730The second column below gives the type of option:
732 . `system' means the option is concerned with the operating system;
734 . `driver' means the option selects a driver to be included in the binary;
736 . `lookup' means the option selects a lookuptype to be included in the binary;
738 . `mandatory' means the option is required to be supplied;
740 . `recommended' means the option is recommended to be supplied;
742 . `optional' means what it says;
744Those marked with * are specialized and are unlikely to be required in most
745installations. Those that are marked with ** are commonly set in OS-specific
746Makefiles. If you use any of these in your Local/Makefile, you may need to
747reproduce some of the OS-specific settings. For example, in the Makefile for
748Solaris (which is actually called OS/Makefile-SunOS5), there is
750 LIBS=-lsocket -lnsl -lkstat
752If you use LIBS to add extra libraries, you must also include the OS ones in
753your setting. It is better, in this particular case, to use EXTRALIBS, which is
754empty by default, and is provided for just this reason. Of course, if you do
755actually want to modify a setting from the OS-specific file, there is nothing
756to stop you overriding it in your Local/Makefile.
