Mail notification port

#MAIL_NOTIFICATION_PORT=79

Using the command finger nm_notifyuser to send the text finger nm_notifyuser to the MAIL_NOTIFICATION_PORT triggers the email daemon to check for new mail. Deploying this command also stops automatic email account polling.

The default notification port is 79. To disable the mail notification listener, comment out this setting or set it to -1.

For more information on this port setting, see Request for Comments (RFC) 4146 on the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) website at www.ietf.org.
