mailq - prints the mail queue
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 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.
mailq was developed by the University of California, Berkeley, and
originally appeared in 4.0BSD.
