NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     mailq - print the mail queue

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

     mailq [-v]

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     Mailq prints a summary of the mail	messages queued	for future delivery.

     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	following
     lines show	message	recipients, one	per line.

     Mailq is identical	to ``sendmail -bp''.

     The options are as	follows:

     -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.  Additionally, extra lines may be	intermixed with	the
	     recipients	indicating the ``controlling user'' information; this
	     shows who will own	any programs that are executed on behalf of
	     this message and the name of the alias this command expanded
	     from, if any.

     The mailq utility exits 0 on success, and >0 if an	error occurs.
