NAME
       postkick - kick a Postfix service

SYNOPSIS
       postkick [-c config_dir] [-v] class service request

DESCRIPTION
       The  postkick(1)  command  sends  request  to the specified service over a local transport
       channel.  This command makes Postfix private IPC accessible for use in, for example, shell
       scripts.

       Options:

       -c config_dir
	      Read  the  main.cf configuration file in the named directory instead of the default
	      configuration directory.

       -v     Enable verbose logging for debugging purposes. Multiple -v options make  the  soft-
	      ware increasingly verbose.

       Arguments:

       class  Name  of a class of local transport channel endpoints, either public (accessible by
	      any local user) or private (administrative access only).

       service
	      The name of a local transport endpoint within the named class.

       request
	      A string. The list of valid requests is service-specific.

DIAGNOSTICS
       Problems and transactions are logged to the standard error stream.

ENVIRONMENT
