The OSSP lmtp2nntp program is an LMTP service.
Version: 1.4.1The OSSP lmtp2nntp program is an LMTP service for use in conjunction with a Mail Transfer Agent (MTA) like Sendmail or Postfix, providing a reliable real-time mail to news gateway.
Operating System: Linux
Input messages get their headers slightly reformatted to match Usenet news article format. The article is then posted or feeded into a remote NNTP service (like INN). Delivery must take place immediately or the transaction fails.
OSSP lmtp2nntp relies on the queueing capabilities of the MTA in order to provide a fully reliable service. For this the program returns proper delivery status notification which indicates successful completed action, persistent transient failure or permanent failure.
