NAME
       bounce - Postfix delivery status reports

SYNOPSIS
       bounce [generic Postfix daemon options]

DESCRIPTION
       The  bounce(8)  daemon  maintains  per-message log files with delivery status information.
       Each log file is named after the queue file that it corresponds to, and is kept in a queue
       subdirectory  named  after the service name in the master.cf file (either bounce, defer or
       trace).	This program expects to be run from the master(8) process manager.

       The bounce(8) daemon processes two types of service requests:

       o      Append a recipient (non-)delivery status record to a per-message log file.

       o      Enqueue a delivery status notification message, with a copy of  a  per-message  log
	      file  and of the corresponding message.  When the delivery status notification mes-
	      sage is enqueued successfully, the per-message log file is deleted.

       The software does a best notification effort. A non-delivery  notification  is  sent  even
       when the log file or the original message cannot be read.

       Optionally,  a  bounce  (defer, trace) client can request that the per-message log file be
       deleted when the requested operation fails.  This is used by  clients  that  cannot  retry
       transactions by themselves, and that depend on retry logic in their own client.

STANDARDS
       RFC 822 (ARPA Internet Text Messages)
       RFC 2045 (Format of Internet Message Bodies)
       RFC 2822 (Internet Message Format)
       RFC 3462 (Delivery Status Notifications)
       RFC 3464 (Delivery Status Notifications)
       RFC 3834 (Auto-Submitted: message header)
       RFC 5322 (Internet Message Format)

DIAGNOSTICS
       Problems and transactions are logged to syslogd(8).

CONFIGURATION PARAMETERS
       Changes to main.cf are picked up automatically, as bounce(8) processes run for only a lim-
       ited amount of time. Use the command "postfix reload" to speed up a change.
