POSTDROP(1)			     General Commands Manual			      POSTDROP(1)

NAME
       postdrop - Postfix mail posting utility

SYNOPSIS
       postdrop [-rv] [-c config_dir]

DESCRIPTION
       The  postdrop(1)  command creates a file in the maildrop directory and copies its standard
       input to the file.

       Options:

       -c config_dir
	      The main.cf configuration file is in the named directory	instead  of  the  default
	      configuration directory. See also the MAIL_CONFIG environment setting below.

       -r     Use  a  Postfix-internal	protocol for reading the message from standard input, and
	      for reporting status information on standard output. This  is  currently	the  only
	      supported method.

       -v     Enable  verbose  logging for debugging purposes. Multiple -v options make the soft-
	      ware increasingly verbose. As of Postfix 2.3, this  option  is  available  for  the
	      super-user only.

SECURITY
       The  command  is designed to run with set-group ID privileges, so that it can write to the
       maildrop queue directory and so that it can connect to Postfix daemon processes.

DIAGNOSTICS
       Fatal errors: malformed input, I/O error, out of memory. Problems are logged to syslogd(8)
       and  to	the  standard  error  stream.	When the input is incomplete, or when the process
       receives a HUP, INT, QUIT or TERM signal, the queue file is deleted.

ENVIRONMENT
       MAIL_CONFIG
	      Directory with the main.cf file. In order to avoid  exploitation	of  set-group  ID
	      privileges, a non-standard directory is allowed only if:

	      o      The  name	is  listed  in	the standard main.cf file with the alternate_con-
		     fig_directories configuration parameter.

	      o      The command is invoked by the super-user.

CONFIGURATION PARAMETERS
       The following main.cf parameters are especially relevant to this program.  The text  below
       provides only a parameter summary. See postconf(5) for more details including examples.

       alternate_config_directories (empty)
	      A  list of non-default Postfix configuration directories that may be specified with
	      "-c config_directory" on the command  line,  or  via  the  MAIL_CONFIG  environment
	      parameter.

       config_directory (see 'postconf -d' output)
	      The default location of the Postfix main.cf and master.cf configuration files.

       import_environment (see 'postconf -d' output)
	      The  list  of environment parameters that a Postfix process will import from a non-
	      Postfix parent process.

       queue_directory (see 'postconf -d' output)
	      The location of the Postfix top-level queue directory.

       syslog_facility (mail)
	      The syslog facility of Postfix logging.

       syslog_name (see 'postconf -d' output)
	      The mail system name that is prepended to the process name in  syslog  records,  so
	      that "smtpd" becomes, for example, "postfix/smtpd".

       trigger_timeout (10s)
	      The  time  limit	for  sending  a  trigger  to  a  Postfix daemon (for example, the
	      pickup(8) or qmgr(8) daemon).

       Available in Postfix version 2.2 and later:

       authorized_submit_users (static:anyone)
	      List of users who are authorized to submit mail with the sendmail(1)  command  (and
	      with the privileged postdrop(1) helper command).

FILES
       /var/spool/postfix/maildrop, maildrop queue
