Setting Example Description
dlist_path (none) The directory for lists.dat and all DList work files, log file, and list archiving.

dlist_rotate 50000 Size of log file in bytes before it is rotated (default and minimum value is 60 kbytes)
dlist_smtp_host <domain[:port]> In version 2.5g and above, this setting lets you set the domain or IP Address of the SMTP server it should send mail to. Optionally you can add a colon followed by a port number that DList should connect to other than the default SMTP port 25. (On older versions, DList will ALWAYS send out messages to the ip address,, but you can use this setting to set the port that it talks to.)
dlist_accept_from_request <true/false> true Added for Backwards compatibility. If true, it will accept messages from usernames containing '-request' (default is false).

You probably got here by using a link on our Complete Settings List page. That page lists all settings at the time of the latest compile, so we probably have not documented the setting that you are looking for yet.

Please contact DMail Support with a list of any settings which you want described and we will add them to these pages.
