SHOWQ(8)                                                              SHOWQ(8)

       showq - list the Postfix mail queue

       <b>showq</b> [generic Postfix daemon options]

       The <a href="showq.8.html"><b>showq</b>(8)</a> daemon reports the Postfix mail queue status.
       It is the program that emulates the sendmail `mailq'  com-

       The <a href="showq.8.html"><b>showq</b>(8)</a> daemon can also be run in stand-alone mode by
       the superuser. This mode of operation is used  to  emulate
       the `mailq' command while the Postfix mail system is down.

       The <a href="showq.8.html"><b>showq</b>(8)</a> 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  ser-
       vice can be susceptible to denial of service attacks.

       None.  The <a href="showq.8.html"><b>showq</b>(8)</a> daemon does not interact with the out-
       side world.

       Problems and transactions are logged to <b>syslogd</b>(8).

       Changes to <a href="postconf.5.html"><b></b></a> are picked up automatically as <a href="showq.8.html"><b>showq</b>(8)</a>
       processes  run  for only a limited amount of time. Use the
       command "<b>postfix reload</b>" to speed up a change.
