POSTQUEUE(1)			     General Commands Manual			     POSTQUEUE(1)

NAME
       postqueue - Postfix queue control

SYNOPSIS
       postqueue [-c config_dir] -f
       postqueue [-c config_dir] -p
       postqueue [-c config_dir] -s site

DESCRIPTION
       The  postqueue  program	implements  the  Postfix  user interface for queue management. It
       implements all the operations that are traditionally available via  the	sendmail(1)  com-
       mand.

       The following options are recognized:

       -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.

       -f     Flush the queue: attempt to deliver all queued mail.

	      This option implements the traditional sendmail -q command, by contacting the Post-
	      fix qmgr(8) daemon.

       -p     Produce a traditional sendmail-style queue listing.

	      This  option  implements	the  traditional mailq command, by contacting the Postfix
	      showq(8) daemon.

       -s site
	      Schedule immediate delivery of all mail that is queued for the named site. The site
	      must  be	eligible for the "fast flush" service.	See flush(8) for more information
	      about the "fast flush" service.

	      This option implements the traditional sendmail -qRsite command, by contacting  the
	      Postfix flush(8) daemon.

       -v     Enable  verbose  logging for debugging purposes. Multiple -v options make the soft-
	      ware increasingly verbose.

SECURITY
       This program is designed to run with set-group ID privileges, so that it  can  connect  to
       Postfix daemon processes.

DIAGNOSTICS
       Problems are logged to syslogd(8) and to the standard error stream.

ENVIRONMENT
       MAIL_CONFIG
	      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.

FILES
       /var/spool/postfix, mail queue
       /etc/postfix, configuration files

CONFIGURATION PARAMETERS
       import_environment
	      List  of names of environment parameters that can be imported from non-Postfix pro-
	      cesses.

       queue_directory
	      Top-level directory of the Postfix queue. This is also the root directory of  Post-
	      fix daemons that run chrooted.

       fast_flush_domains
	      List  of	domains that will receive "fast flush" service (default: all domains that
	      this system is willing to relay mail to). This  list  specifies  the  domains  that
	      Postfix accepts in the SMTP ETRN request and in the sendmail -qR command.
