     NAME
          qmail-users - assign mail addresses to users

     OVERVIEW
          The file /var/qmail/users/assign assigns addresses to users.
          For example,

             =joe.shmoe:joe:503:78:/home/joe:::

          says that mail for joe.shmoe should be delivered to user
          joe, with uid 503 and gid 78, as specified by
          /home/joe/.qmail.

          Assignments fed to qmail-newu will be used by qmail-lspawn
          to control qmail-local's deliveries.  See qmail-newu(8).  A
          change to /var/qmail/users/assign will have no effect until
          qmail-newu is run.

     STRUCTURE
          /var/qmail/users/assign is a series of assignments, one per
          line.  It ends with a line containing a single dot.  Lines
          must not contain NUL.

     SIMPLE ASSIGNMENTS
          A simple assignment is a line of the form

             =local:user:uid:gid:homedir:dash:ext:

          Here local is an address; user, uid, and gid are the account
          name, uid, and gid of the user in charge of local; and
          messages to local will be controlled by
          homedir/.qmaildashext.

          If there are several assignments for the same local address,
          qmail-lspawn will use the first one.

          local is interpreted without regard to case.

     WILDCARD ASSIGNMENTS
          A wildcard assignment is a line of the form

             +loc:user:uid:gid:homedir:dash:pre:

          This assignment applies to any address beginning with loc,
          including loc itself.  It means the same as

             =locext:user:uid:gid:homedir:dash:preext:

          for every string ext.

          A more specific wildcard assignment overrides a less
          specific assignment, and a simple assignment overrides any
          wildcard assignment.  For example:

             +:alias:7790:2108:/var/qmail/alias:-::
             +joe-:joe:507:100:/home/joe:-::
             =joe:joe:507:100:/home/joe:::

          The address joe is handled by the third line; the address
          joe-direct is handled by the second line; the address bill
          is handled by the first line.
