negociating a TLS session. By default this value is unset and biboumi
tries a list of well-known paths.
+ An address (IPv4 or IPv6) to bind the outgoing sockets to. If no value is
+ specified, it will use the one assigned by the operating system. You can
+ for example use outgoing_bind=192.168.1.11 to force biboumi to use the
+ interface with this address. Note that this is only used for connections

+ on 127.0.0.1.
The configuration can be re-read at runtime (you can for example change the
log level without having to restart biboumi) by sending SIGUSR1 or SIGUSR2
(see kill(1)) to the process.
