t.m.m.MaildirDirdbmDomain(AbstractMaildirDomain) : class documentation

Part of twisted.mail.maildir View Source View In Hierarchy

A Maildir Domain where membership is checked by a dirdbm file.
Method __init__ Initialize.
Method userDirectory Get the directory for a user
Method addUser Undocumented
Method getCredentialsCheckers Undocumented
Method requestAvatar Undocumented

Inherited from AbstractMaildirDomain:

Method setAliasGroup Undocumented
Method exists Check for existence of user in the domain.
Method startMessage Save a message for the given user.
Method willRelay Undocumented
def __init__(self, service, root, postmaster=0): (source)

The first argument is where the Domain directory is rooted. The second is whether non-existing addresses are simply forwarded to postmaster instead of outright bounce

The directory structure of a MailddirDirdbmDomain is:

/passwd <-- a dirdbm file /USER/{cur,new,del} <-- each user has these three directories

def userDirectory(self, name): (source)
Get the directory for a user

If the user exists in the dirdbm file, return the directory os.path.join(root, name), creating it if necessary. Otherwise, returns postmaster's mailbox instead if bounces go to postmaster, otherwise return None

def addUser(self, user, password): (source)
def getCredentialsCheckers(self): (source)
def requestAvatar(self, avatarId, mind, *interfaces): (source)
