postdrop - Postfix mail posting utility
postdrop [-rv] [-c config_dir]
The postdrop command creates a file in the maildrop directory and copies its standard
input to the file.
-c 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
-v Enable verbose logging for debugging purposes. Multiple -v options make the soft-
ware increasingly verbose.
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.
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.
Directory with the main.cf file. In order to avoid exploitation of set-group ID
privileges, it is not possible to specify arbitrary directory names.
A non-standard directory is allowed only if the name is listed in the standard
main.cf file, in the alternate_config_directories configuration parameter value.
Only the super-user is allowed to specify arbitrary directory names.
