qmail-users - assign mail addresses to users

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


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

          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.

          /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.

          A simple assignment is a line of the form


          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

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

          local is interpreted without regard to case.

          A wildcard assignment is a line of the form


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


          for every string ext.

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


          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.
