NAME

postcat - show Postfix queue file contents  

SYNOPSIS

postcat [-oqv] [-c config_dir] [files...]
 

DESCRIPTION

The postcat(1) command prints the contents of the named files in human-readable form. The files are expected to be in Postfix queue file format. If no files are specified on the command line, the program reads from standard input.

Options:

-c config_dir
The main.cf configuration file is in the named directory instead of the default configuration directory.
-o
Print the queue file offset of each record.
-q
Search the Postfix queue for the named files instead of taking the names literally.

Available in Postfix version 2.0 and later.

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

DIAGNOSTICS

Problems are reported to the standard error stream.
