mailq - print the mail queue


     /usr/bin/mailq [-Ac] [-q subarg] [-v]


     The mailq utility displays a summary of  the  mail  messages
     queued for future delivery.

     The first line displayed for each  mail  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 of the display shows the error mes-
     sage  that  caused this message to be retained in the queue.
     This line will not be displayed if the message is being pro-
     cessed for the first time.

     The mailq utility used to be identical to sendmail -bp.  Now
     it     checks     for     the    authorization    attribute,
     solaris.mail.mailq. If  the  check  for  the  invoking  user
     succeeds,  sendmail -bp is executed with the remaining argu-
     ment vector. Otherwise, an error message  is  printed.  This
     authorization attribute is by default enabled for all users.
     It can be disabled by modifying the Basic Solaris User entry
     in prof_attr(4).


     The following options are supported:

     -Ac   Like  sendmail(1M),  this  flag  tells  mailq  to  use
    rather  than  even   if   the
           operation  mode  does  not indicate  an  initial  mail
           submission.  This  will  result  in  the  client queue
           /var/spool/clientmqueue being  displayed  rather  than
           the default server queue /var/spool/mqueue.

           Similar to -qtime, except that instead of periodically
           forking a child to process the queue, sendmail forks a
           single persistent child for each queue that alternates
           between  processing  the queue and sleeping. The sleep
           time is given as the argument. The sleep time  default
           is  1 second. The process will always sleep at least 5
           seconds if the queue was empty in the  previous  queue

     -qf   Processes saved  messages in the queue once  and  does
           not fork(), but runs in the foreground.

     -qG name
           Processes jobs in the queue group called name only.

     -q[!]I substr
           Limits processed jobs to those containing substr as  a
           substring of the queue id, or not when ! is specified.

     -q[!]R substr
           Limits processed jobs to those containing substr as  a
           substring  of  one of the recipients, or not when ! is

     -q[!]S substr
           Limits processed jobs to those containing substr as  a
           substring of the sender, or not when ! is specified.

     -v    Prints 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 that
           indicate  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 is expanded from, if any.
