7.3 Changing defaults for DIR/text/ files

Copy the ezmlmrc(5) file from the ezmlm bin directory to .ezmlmrc in your .qmail file base directory (usually your home directory):

     % cp /usr/local/bin/ezmlm/ezmlmrc ~/.ezmlmrc

The base ezmlmrc(5) file lives in the ezmlm binary directory, which may differ from ‘/usr/local/bin/ezmlm/ezmlmrc’ if you do not have a default setup. If your system administrator has placed a ezmlmrc(5) file into the /etc directory, start with that one instead, as it is likely to already contain some useful local customization and comments.

Now edit ~/.ezmlmrc. Find the tag corresponding to the text file you want to change, e.g. ‘</text/mod-request/>’, and modify it appropriately. Some tags have conditional flags, so that succeeding text is copied only if specific switches are on/off. Thus, text succeeding ‘</text/file#rms/>’ is copied into DIR/text/file if and only if the ezmlm-make(1) -rms switches are all used. For more info, see documentation in ezmlmrc(5) and the ezmlm-make(1) man page. To invoke a custom .ezmlmrc file, use the ezmlm-make(1) -c (custom) switch.
