You can configure PureMessage to automatically stop and start during reboots. As part of the PureMessage installation process, a symbolic link called "puremessage" is created between the PureMessage pmx-init program and your operating system's initialization scripts directory. However, you must create additional links to complete the configuration in a way that is appropriate for your system setup.
For example, on Red Hat Linux, you must also add corresponding S* and K* symlinks in the /etc/rc.d/rc[0-6].d/* directories, as appropriate. The correct location of these symlinks is dependent on the run level that has been selected for your operating system. The S* and K* symlinks to the "puremessage" entry should be numbered such that pmx-init starts before the SMTP service (sendmail or Postfix) and shuts down after the SMTP service.
For information about stopping and starting services on other platforms and configuring initialization scripts, refer to your operating system's documentation. For instructions on configuring your mail transfer agent (MTA) to automatically stop and start during reboots, see starting Postfix or sendmail automatically on reboot.
