RedHat 9 (Linux i386) - man page for showq (redhat section 8)

SHOWQ(8)			     System Manager's Manual				 SHOWQ(8)

NAME
       showq - list the Postfix mail queue

SYNOPSIS
       showq [generic Postfix daemon options]

DESCRIPTION
       The  showq  daemon reports the Postfix mail queue status.  It is the program that emulates
       the sendmail `mailq' command.

       The showq daemon can also be run in stand-alone mode by the super-user. This mode of oper-
       ation is used to emulate the `mailq' command while the Postfix mail system is down.

SECURITY
       The  showq daemon can run in a chroot jail at fixed low privilege, and takes no input from
       the client. Its service port is accessible to local untrusted users, so the service can be
       susceptible to denial of service attacks.

STANDARDS
       None. The showq daemon does not interact with the outside world.

DIAGNOSTICS
       Problems and transactions are logged to syslogd(8).

BUGS
       The  showq  daemon runs at a fixed low privilege; consequently, it cannot extract informa-
       tion from queue files in the maildrop directory.
