NetBSD 6.1.5 - man page for error (netbsd section 8)

ERROR(8)										 ERROR(8)

       error - Postfix error/retry mail delivery agent

       error [generic Postfix daemon options]

       The  Postfix  error(8)  delivery agent processes delivery requests from the queue manager.
       Each request specifies a queue file, a sender address, the reason for non-delivery (speci-
       fied  as the next-hop destination), and recipient information.  The reason may be prefixed
       with an RFC 3463-compatible detail code; if none is specified a	default  4.0.0	or  5.0.0
       code is used instead.  This program expects to be run from the master(8) process manager.

       Depending  on  the service name in master.cf, error or retry, the server bounces or defers
       all recipients in the delivery request using the "next-hop" information as the reason  for
       non-delivery. The retry service name is supported as of Postfix 2.4.

       Delivery  status  reports are sent to the bounce(8), defer(8) or trace(8) daemon as appro-

       The error(8) mailer is not security-sensitive. It does not talk to the network, and can be
       run chrooted at fixed low privilege.

       RFC 3463 (Enhanced Status Codes)

       Problems and transactions are logged to syslogd(8).

       Depending  on  the  setting of the notify_classes parameter, the postmaster is notified of
       bounces and of other trouble.

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