OpenSolaris 2009.06 - man page for mailq (opensolaris section 1)

mailq(1)				  User Commands 				 mailq(1)

       mailq - print the mail queue

       /usr/bin/mailq [-Ac] [-q subarg] [-v]

       The mailq utility displays a summary of the mail messages queued for future delivery.

       The  first line displayed for each mail message shows the internal identifier used on this
       host for the message, the size of the message in bytes, the date and time the message  was
       accepted  into  the  queue, and the envelope sender of the message. The second line of the
       display shows the error message that caused this message to be retained in the queue. This
       line will not be displayed if the message is being processed for the first time.

       The  mailq  utility used to be identical to sendmail -bp. Now it checks for the authoriza-
       tion attribute, solaris.mail.mailq. If the check for the invoking user succeeds,  sendmail
       -bp  is	executed  with	the  remaining	argument  vector.  Otherwise, an error message is
       printed. This authorization attribute is by default enabled for all users. It can be  dis-
       abled by modifying the Basic Solaris User entry in prof_attr(4).

       The following options are supported:

       -Ac		Like  sendmail(1M),  this  flag  tells mailq to use submit.cf rather than
			sendmail.cf even  if  the  operation  mode  does  not indicate an initial
			mail  submission. This will result in the client queue /var/spool/client-
			mqueue	being  displayed   rather   than   the	 default   server   queue

       -qp[time]	Similar to -qtime, except that instead of periodically forking a child to
			process the queue, sendmail forks a  single  persistent  child	for  each
			queue  that  alternates  between  processing  the queue and sleeping. The
			sleep time is given as the argument. The sleep time default is 1  second.
			The  process  will always sleep at least 5 seconds if the queue was empty
			in the previous queue run.

       -qf		Processes saved  messages in the queue once and does not fork(), but runs
			in the foreground.

       -qG name 	Processes jobs in the queue group called name only.

       -q[!]I substr	Limits	processed  jobs  to those containing substr as a substring of the
			queue id, or not when ! is specified.

       -q[!]R substr	Limits processed jobs to those containing substr as a substring of one of
			the recipients, or not when ! is specified.

       -q[!]S substr	Limits	processed  jobs  to those containing substr as a substring of the
			sender, or not when ! is specified.

       -v		Prints verbose information. This adds the priority of the message  and	a
			single	character  indicator  (+  or blank) indicating	whether a warning
			message has been sent on the first line  of  the  message.  Additionally,
			extra lines may be intermixed with the recipients that indicate the "con-
			trolling user" information. This shows who will own any programs that are
			executed on behalf of this message and the name of the alias this command
			is expanded from, if any.

       0      Successful completion.

       >0     An error occurred.

       /etc/security/prof_attr	  local source for execution profile attributes

       /var/spool/mqueue	  default server queue

       /var/spool/clientmqueue	  client queue
