POSTCAT(1)                                                          POSTCAT(1)




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  for-
       mat.  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.
