 mailq(1)                                                           mailq(1)

 NAME    [Toc]    [Back]
      mailq - prints the mail queue

 SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]
      mailq [-v]

 DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]
      mailq prints a summary of the mail messages queued for future

      The first line printed for each message shows the internal identifier
      used on this host for the message, the size of the message in bytes,
      the date and time the message was accepted into the queue, and the
      envelope sender of the message. The second line shows the error
      message that caused this message to be retained in the queue; it will
      not be present if the message is being processed for the first time.
      The status characters are:

           *    to indicate that the job is being processed

           X    to indicate that the load is too high to process the job

           -    to indicate that the job is too new in the queue to process.

      The output lines that follow the second line show the message
      recipients, one per line.

      mailq is identical to sendmail -bp.

      The options supported are:

    Options    [Toc]    [Back]
      -v      Print verbose information.  This adds the priority of the
              message and a single character indicator (``+'' or blank)
              indicating whether a warning message has been sent on the
              first line of the message.  In addition, extra lines may be
              intermixed with the recipients indicating the ``controlling
              user'' information. This shows who owns the programs that are
              executed on behalf of this message and the name of the alias
              this command expanded from, if any.

 RETURN VALUE    [Toc]    [Back]
      The mailq utility exits with 0 on success, and >0 if an error occurs.

 AUTHOR    [Toc]    [Back]
      mailq was developed by the University of California, Berkeley, and
      originally appeared in 4.0BSD.
