pathway_group — a container for pathways



Currently, esmtp_listener options used in the pathway_group scope are not recognized by ecelerity. For this reason, do not use pathway_group as a configuration container. As a workaround, use the pathway scope only.

The pathway_group scope is used to logically group pathways so that common configuration options need not be repeated throughout a configuration file.

pathway_group "group1" {
  idle_time = 400
  pathway "example1" {
    banner_hostname = "example1.mail.server"

  pathway "example2" {
    banner_hostname = "example2.mail.server"

In the example above, both pathways will have the same idle_time but different banner_hostnames.


pathway_group is valid in the global scope.
