pmailq - Postfix Mail Queue manager

Description

pmailq processes the output of the Postfix mailq command, and can list, parse (machine-readably), or delete queued messages in batches. They can be selected by size, by queue status, and by pattern matching (with wildcards) on recipient addresses and server error messages.

Commands

Action to perform on selected entries:

list Show (via postqueue -p)a detailed listing of the selected entries.

parse Show a listing of the selected entries in a machine readable format.

del Delete (via postsuper -d) the selected entries.

Options

-e PATTERN, --email=PATTERN Select entries in queue with email matching PATTERN (wildcards allowed).

-m PATTERN, --msg=PATTERN Select entries in queue with error message matching PATTERN (wildcards allowed).

-l SIZE, --size-lower=SIZE Select entries in queue with size lower than SIZE bytes.

-u SIZE, --size-upper=SIZE Select entries in queue with size upper than SIZE bytes.

-a Select "active" entries in queue.

-o Select "on hold" entries in queue.

--version Show program's version number and exit

-h, --help Show help message and exit

Examples

Example 1 : display all the entries in queue sent to an recipient address matching "@example.com" with a size between 3000 and 3200 bytes in a machine readable format:

> pmailq -u 3000 -l 3200 -e "*@example.com" parse
