MAILQ(1)			     General Commands Manual				 MAILQ(1)

NAME
       mailq - print the mail queue

SYNOPSIS
       mailq [-Ac] [-q...]  [-v]

DESCRIPTION
       Mailq prints a summary of the mail messages queued for future delivery.

       The  first  line  printed for each message shows the internal identifier used on this host
       for the message with a possible status character, the size of the message  in  bytes,  the
       date and time the message was accepted into the queue, and the envelope sender of the mes-
       sage.  The second line shows the error message that caused this message to be retained  in
       the  queue;  it	will not be present if the message is being processed for the first time.
       The status characters are either * to indicate the job is being processed; X  to  indicate
       that  the load is too high to process the job; and - to indicate that the job is too young
       to process.  The following lines show message recipients, one per line.

       Mailq is identical to ``sendmail -bp''.

       The relevant options are as follows:

       -Ac    Show the mail submission queue specified in /etc/mail/submit.cf instead of the  MTA
	      queue specified in /etc/mail/sendmail.cf.

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

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

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

       -v     Print 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 indicating the ``controlling 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 expanded from, if any.  Moreover, status messages for each
	      recipient are printed if available.

       The mailq utility exits 0 on success, and >0 if an error occurs.
