       Sympa is scalable and highly customizable mailing list
       manager.  It can cope with big lists (200,000 subscribers)
       and comes with a complete (user and admin) Web interface. It
       is internationalized, and supports the us, fr, de, es, it,
       fi, and chinese locales. A scripting language allows you to
       extend the behavior of commands. Sympa can be linked to an
       LDAP directory or an RDBMS to create dynamic mailing lists.
       Sympa provides S/MIME and HTTPS based authentication and
       encryption.  Sympa is a modern mailing-list manager. It
       supports a lot of useful features.

       -d, --debug
            Enable debug mode.

       -f, --file=another.sympa.conf
            Force Sympa to use an alternative configuration file
            instead of /etc/sympa/sympa.conf.

       -k, --keepcopy=directory
            This option tells Sympa to keep a copy of every incoming
            message, instead of deleting them. `directory' is the
            directory to store messages.

       -l, --lang=catalog
            Set this option to use a language catalog for Sympa. The
            corresponding catalog file `catalogue'.cat must be
            located in /usr/lib/sympa/nls directory.

       -m, --mail
            Sympa will log calls to sendmail, including recipients.
            This option is useful for keeping track of each mail
            sent (log files may grow faster though).

       -h, --help
            Print this help message.

       -v, --version
